Corbett National Park India tours

I was recently doing some research for one of my hobbies, writing fantasy fiction stories. I wanted to include some of my favorite animals like the fishing cat and the mongoose and found a place in India that has both: Corbett National Park.

I thought it would be prudent and fun to do some research so I contacted a tour agency about Corbett National park tours. I’m not making any recommendations because I haven’t used any of these companies yet or even shopped around – I’ve only contacted this one tour guide.

The following tour has been quoted at 380.00 per person including:

1. Accomodation (double)

2. All meals at Corbett

3. Breakfast at Nainital

4. Safaris as per the itinerary

5. Entry Fees into the national park

6. Natulaist at the time to safari

7. All the Transportation by exclusive car Delhi-delhi

8. All the taxes

River rafting and elephant rides are the favorite activities of the tourists here across the 520 sq km of India’s first national park along the bank of Ramganga river. It is also known for Sal tree as its main flora. It is named after the hunter-naturalist Jim Corbett, who suggested the conception of this wildlife sanctuary, Over 50 mammals, 600 birds and 25 reptile species have been spotted here but the highlight of course is the Indian

Nainital – Nainital in Uttaranchal has beautiful Naini lake and panoramic mountain scenery. Besides the hill resorts of Almora, Ranikhet and Kausani, Nainital has extended tourist attractions as MulwaTal to the east along with Bhimtal, Sattal and Naukachiatal and recreational activities such as canoeing and yachting.

Day 5 : Nainital-Delhi:

Morning Free in the afternoon drive back to Delhi.

I also plan to check on local accommodations and maybe arrange my own accommodations and try out several different treks. This gives me more control, but also requires more work including some work finding local tour guides while I’m there when I’d rather be spending my time concentrating on the nature (and the book).

    During my younger days I had the fortune of visiting Corbett Park on several occasions and staying in the forest bungalows within the park. I particularly recall 2 stays of a fortnight each at the Khinanauli Rest House in 1986 and 1987..both particularly memorable as we were able to see the elusive tigers many times. However, I am rather surprised at the tourist guide literature claiming river rafting in Corbett! In 1986 we were still allowed to fish in the river for magnificent Mahaseer..in 1987 fishing was banned in the park as it was considered too dangerous for humans to be loitering around. In ’87 there was also a large herd of wild elephants that had just migrated to the park and we were ‘mock charged’ by a large male as we passed too close to them (and their young ones). Definitely worth visiting but do go around with a forest guide..the tigers can get very dangerous.

    HI

    I had been there with a group of friends along with our children… we were 6 Adults and 2 children. Had taken my 4 year old son first time with me alone to handle as his mother stay home. It was a lovely experience and i didnt feel a little stressed as my child enjoyed every bit of that place. We Stayed at Infinity Resorts (link if you guys plan to go http://www.infinityresorts.com ) which was on the bank of the river Kosi. The kids loved playing in the river water even though it was a little cold. They gave the Elephant a bath in the river which was a lovely experience…. we also went on an Elephant Safari my first time and were also lucky to site the Tiger. One day was also spent on a trip to Dikhala. As for the river rafting heard it is seasonal.

    Make a trip once and get a feel.
