Clothing Tips
Pench National Park remains open for visitors from October to June last, every year. In monsoon season, i.e., from July to September, it remains closed for visitors. Pench National Park is located in Madhya Pradesh State and Maharashtra State. Here winter season prevails from November to February and Summer season can be experienced from March to June. Regarding outfit color, we should avoid shiny or reflective clothes during park safari as such reflective or colors often diverts or attracts wild animals & bird’s attention which may become cause them leaving the place. Clothes color should be matching with surroundings like dark green, muddy-brown and rocky-grey are the ideal clothing color.

Clothing Tips for Summer
Cotton or linen outfits are always considered good for wildlife safaris. As safari track inside Pench National Park are on raw earth so safari is often dusty so clothing should be decided accordingly. Prefer to wear clothes that are comfortable to wear and cover most of the body parts especially during safaris in summers as straight sunlight often make you feel itching in uncovered skin. Full-sleeve outfits help to avoid dust on skin that often faced during safari especially when you are following safari vehicle. At the threshold of summers, during March there is no need to keep woolen outfits in day-time but of course we may require thick clothing in morning safari. From the month of April to June, pair of cotton garments (with light colors) are the most suitable outfits to wear which covers most of the body part as straight sunlight causes itching effect on skin.

Clothing Tips for Winters
National Park is open for visitors from mid October. During this time, you will be introduced to high grassland area, dense bushes and wetland areas inside reserve. Climate remains cool. In the month of October & November, temperature remains in between approx. 22 to 35° Celsius so a pair of woolen outfits may do the work. In winter months December-January-February, temperature ranges between 2 to 8° Celsius during morning game drives and in afternoon safari temperature ranges in between 15 to 20°Celsius. So accordingly we can arrange the woolen outfits to cope with the chilling breeze during open safari jeep rides. It is advisable that you get the face masks for yourself. They are available at the gate, costs approx. Rs 100 (but not available at all gates) but better you get it. It gets very dusty and especially if you have dust allergy. A surgical face mask (available at any chemist) also works and many a resorts do give this if you ask for it. Also it gets very chilly in the morning (irrespective of the season), better to wear multiple layers and/or carry a blanket. A good resort will actually give you a blanket too. Some other important things to carry for safaris are Cap or Hat, sun-glasses, camera covers, water-bottles, binocular, sufficient camera memory-cards. Although these items are not part of clothing but often proves very helpful during safari.
