Synopsis
This tour begins with a beautiful long drive from Delhi to Corbett. Crossing fields of yellow mustard and sugarcane, small villages, bustling towns of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, you get a glimpse of the diversity India has to offer. Before you know it, you’ll already be at foothills of Himalayas for entry to the Corbett National Park.

Established in 1936, Jim Corbett National Park is the first wildlife reserve of India and also the first reserve to come under Project Tiger in 1973.
It was named in the honor of Jim Corbett, legendary hunter-turned- conservationist, best known for hunting man-eating tigers and leopards in the Kumaon and lower Garhwal in the 1920s.
Away from the urban concrete jungles, within easy driving distance of Delhi (6 hrs), Corbett is a popular retreat for wildlife and nature enthusiasts. It provides a great opportunity for viewing wildlife, especially the tiger in its natural habitat. The main wildlife animals found in the Corbett National Park include the Tiger, Elephant, Chital, Sambar, Nilgai, Gharial, King Cobra, Muntjac, Wild Boar, Hedgehog, Common Musk Shrew, Flying Fox, Indian Pangolin and nearly 600 species of birds.

Aboard the 4WD, we enter the Corbett NP from the Dhikala tourism zone and visit the Interpretation Centre. Accompanied by an expert guide, the Jeep takes us through the stately dense Sal jungle of Corbett along the Ramganga River. We cross the river at Gethia Rao Bridge for the Kanda Range, where Jim Corbett shot the famous Kanda man-eater. We arrive at the main tourist complex, Dhikala where a scrumptious lunch awaits. Relaxing a bit in the serene, lingering quietness of the park and capturing the panoramic expanse on your camera, you can also visit one of the best wildlife libraries there.
Well rested, you can choose to enjoy an elephant ride (subject to availability and on direct payment) or an afternoon jeep safari on a track along the periphery of the core area. An exciting drive through the sylvan beauty of the Khinanauli range offers wildlife viewing in plenty and a chance sighting of the elusive tiger. We return to the tourist complex. Freshening up, you have the option of watching a film show on wildlife followed by dinner. Being deep in the forest area, the accommodation in Dhikala is basic but comfortable, with an en suite toilet and shower. The tour includes full board at Dhikala, where only vegetarian food is available and alcohol is not permitted.

With early morning mist drifting over the river and a distinct chill in the air, it can be an exciting experience looking for tigers, wild elephants and other mammals and birds. Many of the birds we are likely to see are characteristic of the Himalayan region, with a good selection of Palaearctic rarities to set pulses racing. In the evening, we take you to comfortable cottages at the quaint eco-lodge called Tiger Camp for dinner and overnight stay. The picturesque drive feels like a safari in itself.
We make our way back to Delhi where the tour ends.
