The Pench Tiger Reserve is located in the southern portion of the Satpura hill range. The wildlife sanctuary is located in a very prominent part of Central India. The place is well known for its rich flora fauna, beauty and peacefulness and has been appreciated by many poets in literature.
The park derives it name” Pench” from the river Pench, which flows nearby and divides the sanctuary into two equal parts. The Pench National Park is spread in an area of 758 sq. km. with a wide forest belt which extends in the East, North and South directions and also covers the forest tracts of three districts, namely Seoni, Madhya Pradesh.
One can see a Dam which was constructed on the Pench River on south-eastern boundary of the reserve. The area is in the form of a criss-crossed which appears due to the presence of many Nalas ans well as seasonal streams. Every year the River Pench dries up by end of April, however one can still see many water pools here which are known as “dohs”, these serve as waterholes for the perennial springs as well as for the wild animals.
