About Corbett National Park
From Hailey National Park to being renamed as Jim Corbett National Park, this forest has been on quite a journey. India’s first and finest park spread over 520 sq. kms. along the banks of the Ramganga river, it is an ode to the late hunter turned conservationist, author and photographer, Sir James Edward Corbett.
The park, nestled in the laps of the great Himalayas and the Ramganga river, offers picturesque views of the sun, sand and greens all at once. A landscape so mesmerizing, Corbett is one tiger safari destination which is also called the land of the roar, trumpet and song. It homes the Royal Bengal Tiger (and has the highest tiger density at that), The Wild Asian Elephant and close to 600 species of birds!. It is quite unbelievable to imagine that of these 600 species, one can count up to 16 species of just Woodpeckers!
Other than the aforementioned, Corbett is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. It has several other species under its belly like the Indian Leopard, Sloth Bear, Deer, Crocodiles, Gharials, King Cobras and a lot more. Apart from wildlife, there is another reason why Corbett is every wildlife enthusiast’s dream.
It is here that you get the opportunity to stay within the national park in a 100 year old forest rest house in the Dhikala Zone. This particular safari zone not only has the highest number of tiger sightings every year but also has varying landscapes. You will drive through dry river beds, under canopies of thick Sal tress, overlook elephants grazing in the grasslands while also capturing the tiger trying to cross the Ramganga river. Everything here is picture perfect to say the least.
