|Day 04 – Tuesday, Pench National Park (Ramtek) |
Today the Deccan Odyssey will halt at Ramtek, for your rendezvous with nature's beautiful creations at the Pench National Park. It is named after the Pench river, which wanders through it like a python, splitting it into almost equal halves. The park is vastly rich in biodiversity, its terrain defined by hills, valleys and the occasional precipitous slope. This important ecosystem supports an abundance of flora and fauna, which includes a rich diversity of aquatic life.
After an exciting game drive, return to the Deccan Odyssey for a relaxed brunch on board.
In the afternoon, get ready for your second adventure into the wild. For the uninitiated, the Pench National Park combines four different forest regions in one. It features an extravagance of trees, shrubs, grasses, climbers, weeds and herbs, with teak being the most prominent of the tree species. The birdlife here is equally abundant with both resident and migratory birds like Malabar pied hornbills, Indian pittas, ospreys and grey-headed fishing eagles. The park is also home to white-eyed buzzards, storks, waterfowls, four endangered vulture species, and the green pigeon, which is the state bird of Maharashtra.
After a thrilling day at Pench, drive back to Ramtek station to board the Deccan Odyssey. Enjoy a lavish dinner as the Deccan Odyssey departs for Tadoba.
