Jim Corbett National Park

Named after the legendary hunter turned conservationist Jim Corbett, strangely enough only one of the maneater tigers he shot, the Mohan Maneater, was from these forests. Blessed with gorgeous landscape including forests, rivers and hills outside the park, Corbett as a destination today is far bigger than the national park itself. Thanks to its proximity to Delhi and its natural beauty, tourists coming to Corbett are not limited to real wildlife lovers only, and there is a range of fun and adventure activities that can be enjoyed.

Things to do

Kaladhungi-Jim Corbett Heritage Walk - Best known for his classic book 'The Man eaters of Kumaon', Jim Corbett has also had a huge impact on conservation efforts, especially with the villagers living near the forests around his village Kaladhungi. This Heritage trail, managed by the village folk, provides further insight and experiences of the immense work done by the 'Gora Sadhu' as Corbett came to be known later.

Day Safari Bijrani - Bijrani is one of the safari zones in Corbett National Park where you have a relatively higher chance of spotting a tiger. Also, its proximity to both Ramnagar as well as Dhikuli/ Garjia where most of the resorts are located, makes it a very convenient zone to visit. Of course, this means that it's also the most popular zone for day safaris, and safari bookings, especially over weekends, can be hard to get. Safari bookings open 45 days in advance, and you could book either a morning or an afternoon safari - but with only 30 safari vehicles permitted on each safari, you should plan well in advance.

Jungle Hike - One can't step foot on the ground while on a safari in Corbett National Park. However, the buffer zones around the park offer some excellent opportunities to witness wildlife while on a hike. You set off early in the morning with our expert naturalist following a trail into the wild. The trail offers great birding and wildlife opportunities and even glimpses of big cats occasionally.
