Mahindra Scorpios scortch through the dense jungle of Pench


If there is one phrase, which could sum up the recently concluded ‘Wild Escape 2014’ is ‘call of the wild’.  The first edition of the Wild Escape, which ended onFebruary 14 and saw a convoy of 15 expedition ready Mahindra Scorpios’ trail driving their way through the wild forests of Pench and Kanha.


The event was organized by Mahindra Adventure, the umbrella brand of Mahindra & Mahindra, which organizes series of adventure and motor sports events organised under its banner.


“The latest addition to our calendar of events, The Wild Escape is in keeping with our promise of providing adrenaline pumping challenges and escapes. The first edition gave its participants a taste of wildlife and nature, while the vehicles drove through the heart of Tiger country,” said Vivek Nayer, Chief Marketing Officer, Automotive Division, M&M. The five-day expedition started from Nagpur, and traveled through the nearby wildlife reserves – Pench & Kanha Tiger Reserve – before returning to Nagpur.


The flag off took place at Nagpur from where the group of wildlife enthusiasts drove past mustard fields in their Mahindra vehicles, before going deep into the forests of Pench and Kanha. The participants had their first brush with wildlife at Pench. Here the sights and sounds of nature became wilder as they came into close encounters with fierce predators like Leopards, Tigers and other wild animals like Cheetals, Gaurs, Wild Boars, Barasingah and Jackals.






Apart from being a veritable wildlife reserve, these jungles also lived up to their reputation of being a haven for bird spotters. Replete with migratory birds such as the Malabar pied hornbill, Indian pitta, Osprey and some of the endangered species of Vulture, these reserves also house local Peacocks and Kingfishers aplenty.


Pench and Kanha Tiger reserves, apart from being rich in wildlife, also boast of a heterogeneous mixed forest, of shrubs and grasslands making the drive an unforgettable experience.


While it was mostly about disciplined convoy driving on the tarmac, from one tiger reserve to another, participants got their share of off-roading thrills in one of the pre-planned safaris where Mahindra vehicles were taken into the reserve to spot wildlife.


TheMahindra Adventure calendar comprises a series of events throughout the year such as the popular off-roading event, the Great Escape, several Challenges (sporting events in keeping with the company’s promise of providing adrenaline pumping challenges), Multi-Day Escapes, such as the Monastery Escape (10 days) & Royal Escape (six days), the Tri- Nation Escape (Bhutan, India & Nepal- 14 days), Authentic Goa (four days) & Wild Escape (five days).
