Post breakfast, we can enjoy sitting beside the River Kosi or just chilling at the resort, Camp making plans for the coming 4 days! After lunch, we head out for our first safari into Corbett National Park, covering the Bijrani zone, which has been reporting some very interesting sightings this season! We return around sundown and get back to Tiger Camp. After freshening up, some good bonding and sharing of stories with some refreshments, we end the day with some delicious dinner. Off to bed and to dream of the many safaris to come!
Day 2 : We carry a packed breakfast for this morning, as the aim is to get into the park’s Dhikala zone as soon as the gates open! Jeep safari through the stately dense Sal jungle and the wildlife adventure of Corbett park begins. We drive slowly through the park, looking out for the wildlife and listening intently for any signs of where the big predators may be! We stop at one of the designated points where we can get off from the vehicles and dig into our breakfast. Post satisfying our tummies, we continue our adventure to finally arrive at the main tourist complex, the famous Dhikala. We have ample time to settle into our rooms and relax till lunch. Enjoy the serene, lingering quietness of the park and capture the panoramic expanse visible from Dhikala on your camera. Depending on availability, we will try for an elephant safari, else we’ll head out in the vehicles for another exciting drive. We return to the complex around sunset. Dhikala often has an interesting film show on wildlife in the evenings. We end the day with dinner at the complex dining hall.
Day 3 : In-between meals, the whole day is spent exploring the jungle and viewing the various beautiful specimens of nature that are abundant in Corbett. Although the aim is to sight the amazing tigers, we never forget to enjoy all the other treats too, that the forest has to offer. Overnight back at Dhikala.
Day 4 : In case we have not managed an elephant safari the previous day, we will try for it this morning if we feel like going on one. This again depends on availability as the number of ride elephants at Dhikala is very limited presently. Breakfast would be at Dhikala, after which we pack our luggage and keep it in a safe area. The rest of the day is spent further exploring the park. Post lunch at Dhikala, we slowly drive towards the gate. This journey back is as good as a safari in itself. Our aim would be to exit close to sundown. We’ll be driven back to Tiger Camp, where we can freshen up and after an early dinner, head to the railway station to catch our train back to Delhi.
