Taj Baghvan A Taj Safari Pench National Park

Baghvan, A Taj Safari

5 Star Jungle Safari Resort in Pench National Park

Located just 100 kms away from Nagpur, a two hour drive brings you to Baghvan, which literally means the ‘tiger forest’. Only a few minutes from the national park entrance these 12 charming stand-alone bungalows are built alongside a picturesque ‘nullah’ (dry riverbed), that demarcates the lodge premises from the national park. Each bungalow at our safari resort in Pench National Park comes with its own rooftop machan, indoor and outdoor shower areas and a private sit-out surrounded by the woods. A colonial theme is nuanced in the guest areas with a vintage radio, crystal candelabras on the dining table and metal chandeliers. Delicate Parsi tiles on the live food counter, woven hyacinth furniture and giant ebony chests add to the elegance of the hall. The Taj Safari Lodge in Baghvan has a delightful infinity pool shaded by trees and overlooking the forest. A tiny cottage across the safari shop houses a small library, computer and a television for guests, with the adjacent room being a tasteful serene space for massage treatments.

Great experience @ Pench for celebrating my husband's birthday
Very hospitable staff. Raj was very helpful in surprise-planning of my husband's bday,. Also the food was just mouth-watering, expecially, tari ki sabji, Lauki, Shaoji chicken, cabbage curry. Kanhaiya is an amazing cook. Our flight was delayed, and the staff was so warm enough to offer extended stay and even made khichdi for us so that we don't return hungry on our way back to Nagpur. Last but not the least, the safaris were amazing, Akhil was our naturalist in all the 4 of our safaris, and we really enjoyed each one of them. Overall a 10/10 experience. very refreshing and amazing gateway. Pench has a rustic feel to it, and the property is wonderfully maintained although being so close to nature. Always a delight to experience a Taj property and hospitable staff. :) Poulomi M. Stayed in Cottage 10 24th June - 27th June'22

Great property with equally amazing service.
I visited this property with my wife and 1 year old kid on the account of our 4th wedding anniversary and stayed there for 2 nights. All our needs were extremely well taken care of and we were absolutely delighted by the fact that the entire team was always proactive and keen to assist. The property itself was blessed with its unique set of quirks which only adds to the charm of the experience. It was almost spooky and we loved it. Chef Kanahiya made special meals for my kid every time we were at the dining hall, arranged for fruits and hot milk for us to-go without having to request. Raghu and Raj from the restaurant service team made sure that each of our meals was a delight. Ajay from Front Office made arrival and departure a breeze. Om from housekeeping left no room for any complaints. The in-house naturalist Akhil was very well informed and eager to share his knowledge which really elevated our Safari experience. I am glad that I chose to spend my short vacation at this property and the team also made special dining arrangements for us on our special day. I will surely return again and recommend this hotel to everyone who is interested to visit Pench. If there is one room for improvement, I would say that at this price point, having individually packed bathroom amenities is expected (as can be seen in other Taj luxury division properties) as opposed to the refilled bottles. Overall, the experience was fantastic and most of it had to do with the dedication of the employees and the personalized nature of the service which is often advertised but rarely delivered. Keep up the good work, Team Baghwan !!!
