Pench Tiger Reserve

About Pench

The area of the Pench Tiger Reserve and the surrounding area is the real story area of Rudyard Kipling’s famous “The Jungle Book". The idea of Mongali is made from the pamphlet “An Account of Wolves’s Nurturing Children in their Dens" by Sir William Henry Sliman. In 1831 there was a report of the arrest of a child who had grown up with wolves in village Satbavadi near Seoni. The place described in “The Jungle Book", the Vainganga River, its valley where Sher Khan was killed, the mountain ranges of village Kannivara and Sivani etc. are the actual places in the Seoni district. The forest areas of the Pench Tiger Reserve have a glorious history. Its natural beauty and richness is described in the  Ioni-Akbari and many other natural history books such as R.A. Strenthal’s “Sivni, Camp life in the Satpura", James Forsyth “High Lands of Central India" and A. A Dunbar Brander “Wild Animals of Central India" etc. Pench Tiger Reserve was awarded to “Best Maintain Tourist Friendly National Park" Award under the National Tourism Prize 2006-07.
