Pench MP - some additional information

Absolutely.

Just to describe the process a little better:
  1. Go to the link above and get online permits
  2. Get a vehicle arranged (see note below)
  3. Pay for Guide at the gate in cash when safari starts

Vehicles can be arranged by your hotel, but typically it is a couple hundred more. E.g. we stayed in Kipling Court and they would arrange Gypsy @ 2200/- (Apr 2017).

However, we checked in Internet for some references, and was looking for Bablu. Could not get him, so checked in registered vehicle list and had contacted Mr. Shivprasad Bhawre (+91-8989187257; he is a registered naturalist himself as well). We had a good chat and he proposed vehicle @INR 2K per safari. He also told that he will ensure that he will depute one driver for all the safaris we will take (we took 4).

Please note that both vehicle allotment and guide allotment is random, however you can keep the same driver if you have discussion beforehand with the vehicle owner. This helps, because then driver knows which all areas you had already covered or what your interests are.


About Kipling Court Dorms, those are air-cooled, not AC. Also the price includes Veg food only, you need to add more if you want to have non-veg.

I have booked for Tadoba instead and will need some information on taxi fares or other ways to get to Tadoba national park from Nagpur Airport and also on costs per safari. I have booked for 3 nights so can do 5 safari trips preferably on sharing basis. Dates booked are 30th November to 3rd December. Is anyone going on these dates?

Taxi cost from Nagpur to Tadoba ( Moharli) is around 3000 for small cabs & 3500 for larger capacity cars. Safari cost is around 3800 Rs per safari (1200 Rs permit cost with camera charges, 350 Rs Guide fees, Gypsy charge 2200 Rs for 6 persons ).You have to book safari permit online in advance. Other charges are to be paid at the entry gate .
