Luxury in the woods- A stay @WelcomHeritage

Continuing with my writings on my recent visit  to Pench Tiger Reserve [I know, it’s been a while now, though it just feels like yesterday! 😉 ] here’s a post that would talk about my luxurious experiences out in the woods.  Since, I have already written about my sightings here and my thoughts on how to plan a trip to one of the best tiger reserves in India there, I thought a post sharing my experiences at  WelcomHeritage’s Jungle Home Pench is long overdue. My trip to Pench, most probably wouldn’t have materialized if not for the invitation from these guys. So for that, I love these guys! 🙂

Over a period of two days, this Jungle home was my haven. While the second day was spent entirely in indulging the fresh forest air and meeting the wild inhabitants,  my first day was all about soaking in the surroundings of the Jungle home. Turquoise watered swimming pool, a wildlife library, a swarm of white ducks,  a vintage car, a wild green colored gypsy and a bunch of warm staffers to keep company, the weekend was spent in living the dream of eco-luxury in its truest sense. Here are some moments and postcards I managed to capture and would like to share with you!
