This tiger reserve got its name from the crystal clear Pench river that flows between the aesthetic meadows. It dips from north to south, separating the Pench tiger reserve into equal eastern and western sections.

The national park is spread over 741.22 square kilometers of the area that is beautified by broadleaf teak forests, tropical mixed deciduous forests, Shrubs, and climbers. Furthermore, this park is categorized into 257.26 square kilometers of core zone and 483.96 square kilometers of the buffer zone. 

Pench national park is present in the areas of both Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. It is located in the Seoni and Chhindwara districts. This national park was dedicated as a wildlife sanctuary in 1977. Soon later, in 1983, it was designated as a National Park. Pench received the official designation as a Tiger Reserve in 1992.

The renowned novelist Rudyard Kipling was inspired by the flora and fauna of the Pench National park and therefore he created the world-famous “Jungle Book”.
