Gateway to The Salt Range


Padhri Wildlife Reserve

Padhri Wildlife Reserve is located between the Salt Range, among the fertile valleys of lowland Eastern Pakistan and the spring-fed streams of the Western Himalayas. At Padhri Wildlife Reserve, our approach to nature conservation is based on restoring the ecological balance of the area. We believe in protecting the environment through community involvement, where the local population is involved hands-on to protect the bounty bestowed upon Punjab. The human involvement is minimum so that nature takes its course and the biodiversity of the area is restored to its original shape or state. There are many important species of flora and fauna at Padhri. Ranging from Urial to endogenous birds and mammals such as Pangolins, besides rare herbs & plants. Documented records show that the region once harbored the one-horn rhinoceros. Our firm belief revolves around nature protection and conservation, which is why our primary goal is to control illegal hunting and poaching in the area.



Working within a protected area which provides vital habitat to a wide range of floral and fauna, including numerous endangered species, Padhri Wildlife Resort is committed to promote the awareness and practice for wildlife and flora conservation. The resort believes that research, advocacy and management are the three critical elements contributing towards an effective conservation strategy. The resort supports conservation by providing advocacy through responsible practices and active support for research and management.

Conservation Responsibility

We place emphasis on natural history on the area, and work together with government agencies and NGOs responsible for conservation and protection of the reserve. We run a tree planting program and other activities as our ways to contribute towards conservation responsibility.

Economic Responsibility

Padhri Wildlife Resort has a policy of buying local produce and supplies wherever possible and available, ensuring that local communities benefit. We encourage our guests to buy local products so that money comes back to the local population.

Social Responsibility

Contact and interaction with the local community where applicable, is encouraged as a way of creating understanding and tolerance between different cultures. Guests are expected to observe local customs and traditions. We constantly train local guides.

Environmental Responsibility

We prepare our guests by highlighting environment protection issues and practices. We organize our guests in small groups to minimize environmental impact. Kitchen waste generated in our resort is disposed responsibly.
