    It seems you had ‘all inclusive’ trip to Pench; The collarwali, cubs, jackals, birds et al. Loved the narration. Looking forward to more on some of wildlife sanctuaries. Congo!

    That’s a good terminology – ‘all inclusive’ :-) . Yes, it was a good trip, by god’s grace. I love the forests (including my 10 year daughter), so its always a pleasure trip for all of us.
    Lets hope that these forests and wild life survive.

    Tadoba does not have any elephant safaris. Pench had ‘Tiger Shows’ – which is not an elephant safari. If the forest officials could locate any tiger, they would take tourists on elephants to view the tiger. Viewing time could be as less as a minute, depending on the total number of tourists. But very recently I have heard that this has been discontinued, though it is not confirmed.
    Viewing tigers is never guaranteed, but Tadoba has had good tiger sightings in December.

    Tadoba to Pench would be around 4-5 hours by road, if you travel by car. Public transport will take longer as you have to break at multiple points.
    How you split depends on your preference. If you have 4 nights, you can split 2 nights between Tadoba & Pench. You will have time for 3 safaris at each park.
    Enjoy your trip!!
