Located in the central Himalayan foothills, Corbett Tiger Reserve is without doubt the richest wildlife reserve in Northern India. It supports high tiger density and is also the northernmost extent of the Asian Elephant. Leopards are the second largest predator here, while lesser predators include Jungle and Leopard Cat, Golden Jackal and Yellow-throated Marten.

The abundant prey base includes Spotted Deer, Sambar, Hog Deer and Muntjac, while on steep slopes you’ll find the elusive Goral – a goat antelope. The Ramganga river is home to the endemic Gharial (fish eating crocodile), Muggers (march crocodiles) and Common Otters.

A virtual haven for birders, Corbett hosts over 500 species of resident and migratory birds. The rich bird life includes species like Pallas’s and Lesser Fish Eagle, Brown and Tawny Fish Owl, Nepal Wren Babbler, Collared Falconet, Hodgson’s Bushchat, Rusty-cheeked Scimitar Babbler, Pin-tailed Green Pigeon, Great Slaty Woodpecker, Long tailed Broadbill, White tailed Rubuthroat, Great Hornbill, Wallcreeper, Brown Dipper, Little, Slaty-backed and Spotted Forktail to name a few.

Travel Itinerary

DAY 1 – DELHI TO CORBETT Drive from Delhi to Corbett by surface (270 km/5 hrs) through the vast Gangetic valley, passing through densely populated towns and agricultural fields to arrive at Corbett for lunch. Late afternoon game drive at the Bijrani zone of the Tiger reserve. Overnight at Infinity Lodge
Day 2 – LODGE to DHIKALA We will depart early morning for Dhikala zone with wildlife viewing opportunities enroute. Dhikala has always been the most popular destination in Corbett because of the sheer abundance of wildlife and it’s awesome location – perched above the banks of the Ramganga River that provides fantastic views all around. The huge expanse of these lush grasslands is where the Ramganga drains itself to form a massive 100 sq km reservoir. These grasslands are surrounded by the lush Shivalik ridges and the foothills of the Himalayas. Elephants are the dominant mammals here, but even they are dwarfed by the overwhelming landscape. Overnight at Dhikala Forest Rest House
Day 3 – DHIKALA Massive herds of deer, wild boars can be observed here and this region boasts one of the highest Tiger density anywhere in the world. Scanning through your binoculars along the river and the edge of the lake would reveal numerous Marsh crocodiles, the fish-eating Gharials and perhaps a group of Otters. Sharing their habitat are various waders, ducks and raptors like Ospreys, Harriers and Fish Eagles. Overnight at Dhikala Forest Rest House
Day 4 – DEPART DHIKALA AND ONWARDS TO DELHI Morning game drive into the surrounding forest and drive onwards to exit the reserve stopping at strategic points for wildlife viewing. After luch at the Lodge we drive onwards for Delhi. Overnight at the hotel or onwards for your next destination.
