Finally back from Pench yesterday, total had 5 safaris , 3 at Touria gate and rest 2 at Khursapar gate. We had big cat sighting in 3 out of 5 rides. The trip started with a bang , a wild dog (Dhole) chasing a spotted dear and ran passed us in a split second. It happened so suddenly, our gypsy had to apply brakes to halt. From Touria, currently there are 3 routes which the gypsies can take and they can't deviate from the designated route. MP site allows for seat sharing in 2 gypsies each shift from touria, i have booked the middle row with ID so that, i get enough space for photography. While Touria landscape was flatter and more scenic, forest at khursapar was uneven and dusty.But the tiger sightings are happeneing at khursapar at regular intervals. On our 2 rides we had sighting of a sub adult female tigress-Baras and a female tiger Durga and her 3 cubs.Both were grand sightings. So, one should distribute safaris between both these gates. Our stay was at a budget accommodation Banyan tree camp, located equidistant between both these gates.I highly recommend the hotel for its location and the staff. There are a few other attractions nearby like a trip to the khokha lake - good for birding, night safari to buffer zones for wolf, the resort arranges for those safaris. Happy safari.
