About Tiger Safari in Corbett
Jim Corbett, a British hunter turned tracker, conservationist, author and a naturalist was often called by the Government to kill the man-eating Tigers in the United Provinces. It was during these sojourns that he transformed. His books are a must-read for any nature lover. Just the simple transformation from “shooting a Tiger with the rifle” to “shooting a Tiger with a camera” has been so beautifully explained.
His journey as a conservationist and why he chose wildlife conservation over wildlife hunting is extremely inspiring. To honor his well-doing, the Government of India renamed The Ramganga National Park to Corbett National Park.
Corbett, like all other National Parks in the country has different zones and gates. Each one is more beautiful than the other. However, the most cinematic of them all (and call us biased if you wish), is the Dhikala Zone. There are a few Forest Rest Houses, quite simply curated with the most basic amenities in this zone.
The location is breathtaking beyond imagination. Imagine sleeping amidst the thick forests and waking up to fresh Tiger pug marks outside your cottage. The thrill on this tiger safari to Corbett National Park is undoubtedly unparalleled.
Day 01 : Arrival in New Delhi
Day 02 : New Delhi – Corbett National Park (275 kms/05 hrs drive)
Eat an early breakfast at the Hotel in New Delhi, post which you drive to Corbett National Park. The park is at a distance of 275 km, which approximately rounds up to 05 hours on the road. On arrival, check-in at the Dhikala Forest Lodge.
The Dhikala Lodge was made about a century ago, by the English, during British Raj as they controlled and managed the forested land. Their rangers needed a retreat after an entire day of patrolling the jungle.
These forest lodges are unique to Corbett National Park. It is only in Corbett that you get an opportunity to stay inside the National Park. This particular complex is located on the banks of the Ramganga River and overlooks the foothills of Himalayas.
Post lunch, proceed for an afternoon safari to one of the most scenic National Parks of India. Please Note: Only vegetarian food is served in the Lodge, to prevent any predator from smelling non-vegetarian food. Alcohol consumption is also not permitted within the Lodge premises.
Return from the afternoon safari at sunset. Dinner and overnight at Dhikala Forest Lodge.
Day 03 - 04 : In Corbett National Park
Begin your morning safari at sunrise. Corbett has aptly been described as the land of the Roar, Trumpet, and Song. The scenic and remarkable beauty of Corbett leaves everyone clicking their shutter button.
Corbett had the proud distinction of being the chosen venue for the inauguration of Project Tiger in India. The rich biodiversity of the Reserve is partly attributed to the plethora of habitat found here. Due to the location of the Reserve in the foothills of the Central Himalayas, both Himalayan and peninsular flora and fauna is found in the Reserve.
Dinner and overnight at Dhikala.
Day 05 : Drive from Corbett to New Delhi (Drive 275 kms/05 hrs)
After the morning game drive in the Dhikala Zone and breakfast, checkout from the lodge and drive toward the exit gate of Corbett National Park. Don’t pack your camera bag as you could encounter wildlife on the main road while driving out to the park gate. A three-night stay seems very little in this paradise.
Once you’re out of Corbett, drive to New Delhi. The distance is about 275 kms which should take you approximately 05 hours on the road. Transfer to the Hotel/Airport for your onward journey.
