Tiger, Tiger!!

Corbett National Park is one of the very few tiger reserves that permits overnight stays in the heart of the national park with wildlife sightings from elephant back and 4WD. Corbett boasts of high tiger density and rare species like otters and the endemic Gharial. From April onwards the vast open grass lands surrounded by wooded hills with the Ramganga meandering is perhaps the most scenic spot to observe and photograph wild Asian Elephants. Covering diverse habitats and then having the privilege of exploring the forest on foot at Riverine Woods (not permitted inside the national park) is awe-inspiring. This is a sample itinerary of pure wildlife experience that can be tailor-made depending on the number of days you have. The programme provides you accommodation of full board, 4WD transfers and safaris, elephant ride, nature walks, catch & release mahseer fishing, guides for birding, bonfire, bar-be-que dinners etc.

Day 1. Riverine Woods:
Arrive for a sumptuous lunch (your transfer will be in a 4WD from Tiger Camp or Durgadevi). Followed by a hike in the forest or rest. Here we have the privilege of exploring the forest on foot. We'll explore the prime wildlife habitat on foot where we may come across many mammal and bird species. Evening briefing of the tour by our naturalist, by a fire in the thatch (called live bait) that is tucked away amidst a dense thicket by the Ramganga and complete with a well stocked bar accompanied by bar-be-que.

Day 2 Riverine Woods:
After a hot cup of tea with cookies we'll head out to the forest where we may come across mammals including a tiger or a leopard. The sightings of several deer species are not uncommon, however we'll keep a look out for well concealed ghoral, a species of goat antelope that dwell in steep rock faces. We will cross the Ramganga on several occasions and may come across Otters and Soft-shell Terrapins. Bird lovers will be enchanted with a large number of Fish Eagles and other raptors. Forktails, Dippers and the enigmatic Wallcreeper are fairly common at the Ramganga. We return to the lodge. One always feels that a night and two days are a lot less here and one could easily have booked for a night or two more.
