Pench National park, nestling in the lower southern reaches of the satpuda hills is named after Pench river, meandering through the park from north to south. Drained by the Pench and Wainganga Rivers, it is a green and fertile area for several months of the year and provides a perfect habitat for over 22 species of mammal, including sloth bear, leopard, tiger, deer and over 280 species of birds.  It is located on the southern boundary of Madhya Pradesh, bordering Maharashtra, in the districts of Seoni and Chhindwara. Pench Tiger Reserve and its neighbourhood is the original setting of Rudyard Kipling's most famous work, The Jungle Book.
