The Call of the Wild: Jim Corbett National Park
Jim Corbett National Park, with its bounty of wild tigers, is India’s top safari destination. And the Jeep Safari is the great idea to experience the charm of this Jungle. Snuggled in the foothills of Himalayas along the river Ramganga, Corbett offers the best game drive and walking safari experiences.
Corbett Tiger Reserve spans across some 1288 square kilometers, out of which 521 square kilometers is the Corbett National park area while 301 square kilometers is Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary and the remaining area constitutes the forest reserve area.
The entire area of the park is divided into the following five distinct mutually exclusive tourism zones, where wildlife lovers are permitted in the season specified. The park authority facilitates necessary permits and makes arrangements for your visit into the park.
Bijrani Zone (15 October to 30 June) – Amdanda Gate
Jhirna (Round the Year) – Khara Gate
Dhikala (15 November to 15 June) – Dhangarhi Gate
Dhela Zone (15 November to 15 May) – Dhela Gate
Durga Devi (15 November to 30th June) – Durga Devi Gate
Please note that day visit to Dhikala Tourism Zone is not allowed except in the conducted canter safari tour organized by Corbett Tiger Reserve.
The other area of great haunt is Sitabani forest which is not the part of a Corbett Tiger Reserve. It is a virgin jungle where bird lovers come to capture intriguing behaviour of the birds.
