Wake up with the soft first rays of the sun filtering through the Jharokha (wooden latticed bay window) in your rustic-yet-contemporary air-conditioned bungalow. Enjoy nature on your terms with large courtyards, private shaded sit-outs, an outdoor shower and a romantic rooftop sleep-out on a private machan (jungle platform). The machan is protected with a mosquito net, refreshed with an overhead fan and accessorised with a hookah. In the summer months, a traditional Khus screen is sprinkled with water, which cools the breeze wafting in and scents it with a lovely fragrance.
The guest areas are cool, airy and contemporary, with spacious seating and an interactive open kitchen that spills out into the decked dining area. Welcoming sofas, handmade Parsi tiles, giant ebony chests, high ceilings, overhead fans and huge windows further lend a quaint charm to the lodge.
Roam the jungle in search of tigers and other elusive creatures. Listen intently for the distinctive call of the eagles or one of the 300 other species that may fascinate you. Take daily walks and drives with skilled naturalists or simply enjoy a lazy afternoon at the lodge. This is just a taste of the excitement which awaits you at Baghvan, a Taj Safari Lodge.
Baghvan Lodge is located by a lovely stream, surrounded by forest, on the edge of the sprawling Pench National Park. Its spacious, rustic standalone suites and airy guest areas make a wondrous starting point for your journey into the wild.
Named after the king of India’s jungles, the regal Bengal tiger (“bagh” = tiger, “van” = garden), Pench National Park provided Rudyard Kipling with the perfect backdrop for his classic tale “The Jungle Book”. This unique wildlife experience is complemented by luxurious accommodations, warm service and delicious regional cuisine served in a truly adventurous setting.
Lodges are not operational from 1st July onwards till 15th October, as the national parks are closed due to monsoons.
