Jacobin Cuckoo

Jacobin Cuckoo, the partial migratory birds from Africa will follow its prey, the Globe Skimmer dragonflies, across the Indian Ocean to the jungles of central India this season. 

Jacobin Cuckoo associated with Indian mythology and poetry, the Jacobin Cuckoo is represented with a beak atop its head and it thirsts for the rains. With over 350 species of birds, dancing Peacocks and Fireflies lighting up the sky at sundown, the jungles are the ideal destination for bird-watching enthusiasts.
At just a two hour drive from the Nagpur International Airport, Pench National Park is one of India’s richest, yet lesser-known parks in the state of Madhya Pradesh. It is the perfect time to drive through slushy tracks amidst the multiple shades of green of the lush forest in the rains. Highly trained Taj naturalists will interpret the wild as they take you on game drive safaris through the buffer zone. Their sharply honed skills at spotting wildlife and revealing the park’s secrets ensure you have an intimate and meaningful interaction with nature.

Dominated by hills, forests and valleys it’s this Indian teak jungle that inspired Rudyard Kipling’s enduring classic Jungle Book.

Experience the wild with the unobtrusive luxury of Baghvan, Pench National Park, A Taj Safaris Lodge.
