Filming and photographing tigers on elephant back is an exotic experience. Other animals that can be seen in the park are the sloth bear, wild dog, bison, wild boar, sambar deer, Nilgai, spotted deer, and gray langur.

The Pench forests are a dry deciduous type and the terrain is full of mixed forests, bamboo and small patches of grasslands in between. The Pench river intersects the park and is a crucial life support system. This makes the jungle safari more exciting as it increases the diversity of animal and birdlife.
