Summer 2017 -- Back to the nature

The summer vacation was upon us and this year, nature seems to be calling. We made a plan to drive to Madhya Pradesh and visit national parks.

The drive was spread over three weeks with approximately one week stop to take care of some things.
The trip lasted 22 days with 12 days of active driving days. Total distance covered was 6402 kilometer with approximately 650 liters of diesel consumed. The tolls paid during the travel were approximately Rs. 3500/-. FastTag was accepted in most tolls with significant haggling and it saved no time. Most places FasTag took longer than regular queue.

Day 3 -- Pench National Park to Kanha National Park

The plan was to attend the morning safari in Pench National Park and then move on to Kanha. We entered the Jungle at 6:00 AM and were back by 10:35 AM. Here are some pictures from the Safari.

We were back to resort by 10:45 AM, got ready, had lunch and we were ready to leave for Kanha by 2:15 PM.
2:15 PM We left Pench for Kanha.
We reached Kanha at 06:00 PM. We stayed at The Baagh. Here is my review of the place. We had a sumptuous meal and retired for the day.

Day 2 -- Nagpur to Pench National Park

The destination for the day was Pench National Park. Since it is around 3-4 hours, we decided to get ready leisurely.
10:00 AM We started from previous night's destination after breakfast.  We quickly got onto NH-44.

The roads are fantastic in the Maharashtra section of NH, once you enter MP, the roads are under construction. The roads have significantly improved since last December but still, work in progress.

12:11 PM We reached Pench Jungle Camp. Here is my review of the place.

After Lunch and little rest, we got ready for our first jungle safari into the park. Here are some of the sights from the first day of safari.

And finally good night.
