For most of us, the Pench National Park has been a haven for the tigers and that’s what explains its identity. Imagine, however, you experience meeting the tigers with a bird’s-eye view? Would you not consider it a unique experience then? So, the next time you are at Pench National Park, get set to explore wildlife in a different way altogether! On a hot air balloon instead!
The Tiger Hot Air Balloon Safari at the Pench Jungle Camp:
If hot air ballooning seemed like a distant dream for you, it is not anymore. Combined with the thrill of a Wildlife Safari, the hot air ballooning at Pench National Park offers a serendipitous break from the traditional wildlife tours. The idea of observing nature with a bird’s-eye view can be fun-filled as well as fascinating.
The Pench Jungle Camp provides the hot air ballooning services in a unique and different style. Located in the village Avarghani, 18 kms west of AH-43 highway, the Pench Jungle Camp is equipped with the latest paraphernalia, to explore jungle safari in a way it has never been before- on hot air balloon!
Certified by the DGCA, the Tiger Hot Air Balloon Safaris eliminate the associated risks of the sport with comprehensive in-flight security measures and compliance to international guidelines. The balloons are handled by licensed commercial pilots and the passengers are covered with insurance.
Depending upon the weather conditions, the flights are flown either in the early mornings before the first light or three hours prior to sunset. The time in the air is approximately 60-70 minutes.
