Bird Watching in Corbett
An extended safari at Camp including Dhikala Forest Rest House and Bijrani Range
Day 01: Delhi - Jim Corbett National Park
On arrival in Delhi you will be welcomed by our representative and drive to Corbett. Arrive at Camp by lunch. After wash and change and a sumptuous lunch, we would take you on an escorted nature and bird walk into the Sal forests surrounding camp. It is an excellent opportunity to walk in the cool of the forest, to be so close to nature and to appreciate the varied plants, insects, birds, mammals and reptiles that inhabit this part of the country. Back to camp by sundown for campfire and dinner, which is leisurely and personal. Along with the excellent cuisine, your guide and hosts will amuse and amaze you with their stories of exciting experiences. Then it is time to relax once again and enjoy carefree chatter by the fireside whilst feasting on the unique sounds and smells that your exclusive location offers, before retiring to bed with only canvas separating you from the Indian jungles.
Day 02: Full day game drive into the Bijrani range
Early morning, depart for a full day game drive to the Bijrani range to observe the wildlife of the area. Breakfast and lunch would be served at the Bijrani FRH. After a full, action-packed day in the forest, we head back to camp by sundown, just in time for that hot cup of tea. After a quick wash, join your hosts by the campfire for drinks and snacks and resume the discussions leftover from the previous night. For those of you weary from the long day, dinner would be ready under the Thatch after which you could settle into your comfortable beds in the tent.
Day 03: Camp to Dhikala range
Early breakfast and then depart for the FRH at Dhikala. Enter through the Dhangari gate - a mere 6 kms from Camp. Our route today would take us via Gharial pool, Champion pool on Champion road and High Bank - each one of them, great observation points on the Ramganga River. Arrive at Dhikala by lunch. Post lunch game drive to the Dhikala "chaur" - grasslands, to observe the varied bird and mammal species found in the area. Back for an evening wildlife movie, dinner and overnight stay at the FRH in Dhikala.
Day 04: Full day game drive at the Dhikala range
A brand new and exciting day to view the wildlife & birds at Dhikala. Viewing would be split on elephant back and game drives. We would be back to Dhikala for breakfast and lunch but otherwise the entire day we would be out in different areas of the Park viewing the interesting flora and fauna. Back to Dhikala by late evening, followed by an early dinner and the much-needed comfort of your bed.
Day 05: Dhikala to Camp
We start the day early with a game drive to your most favorite part of the area, from your experiences in the last couple of days.

We would drive past and visit High bank, Champion Pool, Gharial Pool and the interpretation center at the Dhangari gate. Arrive at Camp by evening where you can take a leisurely wash and join your hosts by the campfire. This time it'll be you telling the stories!
