Your gate becomes critical when you book Safari which is “Single Seat Permit” as opposed to “Full Vehicle Permit”. Also it becomes critical when you are looking to book the accommodation.

Pench Safari Booking via Pench Safari Entry Gates:

There is no zoning per say in Pench (unlike Kanha) but there is state-zoning which means if you enter the jungle from MP side, you cannot enter the MH part and vice versa. Selecting a gate to book the safari becomes very paramount. Selecting the most popular gate is not always the right way of doing it but rather do it by seeing how the sighting is going on is prudent. There was a day when no such data was available and everything was a here say but thankfully a complete data and its analysis is available on the app.

Single Seat Permit versus Full Vehicle Permit:

When you are booking Safari, you have to pick the whole Gypsy option when you are booking on the Maharastra side but when you do on the Madhya Pradesh side, you have the option of booking the entire Gypsy (you need select Vehicle Type as full vehicle permit)  or as many seats as you want (1 to 5) (you need select Vehicle Type a Single Seat permit). In single seat permit you choose to not book the whole Gypsy but a few seats and you are ok to share the Gypsy with some others and also you get to share the Gypsy cost too and hence will work out cheaper. In the full vehicle permit, you book the Gypsy entirely for you and hence no one will be sharing your Gypsy nor the Gypsy charges. Max number of people allowed is 6 but just one or two or any number less than equal to 6 can book the entire Gypsy (but the cost remains the same)
