Introduction: A once-in-a-lifetime experience, this is your chance to be with the largest, strongest and bond with one of the most intelligent creatures to walk the planet. The elephant- back safari penetrates deep into lush tropical forest of Corbett Tiger Reserve to unveil its rich flora and fauna. Corbett located at the foothills of the Himalayas is India’s first and perhaps her finest reserves.
Your royal bandwagon comes with your own elephant, an experienced mahout, luxury bush camps and a master chef. From the comfort of your howdah and through leisurely nature walks, discover over 600 species of birds and over 50 species of mammals.
Taking you to normally unreachable areas in a forest with dense undergrowth, the elephant-back safari offers the best opportunities for wildlife viewing. Relive the days of the British Raj and uncover Corbett's legacy at the colonial-era Forest Bungalows. In the heart of the Corbett national park at Dhikala, a 100 sq. km reservoir hemmed by a vast savanna, you continue your exploration in a 4X4 which offers the best opportunities to sight Tigers. The reservoir holds marsh crocodiles and the endemic fish-eating crocodiles – the Gharials.
