Fun-filled activities are often the most memorable times of a vacation. If you are planning a trip to Corbett, do make sure you experience the novel activities this place has to offer and take home a plethora of happy memories!

  • Elephant Safari

    When in the jungle, do it the jungle way! Hop onto the back of an elephant and make your way to the inner parts of the forests to increase your chances of a tiger sighting. A major part of the forest might be off vehicle limits, but says aye to elephants. Strap up and witness the Mahawat (Elephant Driver, if you please) maneuver the mighty beast right to tiger's abode. Now tell us, isn't this one better than the usual pull- your- car- out- of- the- garage and head- to- office?

    There are two safaris that you can take in a day:
    Morning: 6 am-8 am
    Evening: 3 pm-5 pm
    Charges: INR 3500 per elephant, with a seating capacity of 6 persons

  • Jeep Safari

    Race through the empty tracks in the forests or move hushed when tracking a tiger, the Open Jeep Safaris in Corbett offer a thrilling ride. This is perhaps the most popular means of travelling around the National Park. Generally your hotel arranges the safari for you but you can also make your way to the Ticket Office at the gate and get yourself a ride. There are four forest zones in Corbett that you can cover on safaris, namely, Jhirana and Sitabani (open throughout the year) and Bijrani and Lohachaur (open between October and June). Having a government approved guide in your gypsy is an absolute must when you move around the Park, and one will join you after you have taken the permit at the Entry Gate.

    Morning: 6am-10am
    Evening: 2pm-6pm
    Charges: INR 3500 per jeep, with a seating capacity of 6 persons

  • Canter Safari

    Like the open jeep safaris you can take here, there are also open Canter safaris you can enjoy in Corbett. These big machines are actually open trucks that can accommodate up to 20 persons and are a blessing if you are in a big group. You can hop onto these Canters from either Ramnagar or Dhangari Gate, if you are carrying your ID proof.

    There are two safaris you can take in a day
    Morning: 6am-11am
    Evening: 1pm-4pm
    Charges: INR 1500 per person.

  • Nature Walks

    In the evenings, most hotels and resorts organise escorted nature walks in the Corbett National Park. Though the chances of Tusker or Tiger sightings are slim during these walks, they are a thoroughly refreshing experience, given the pure air, beautiful hilly backdrop and thick greenery. The escorts or guides often narrate exciting stories of local encounters of man and beast, which are heart racing and deeply engaging. View the mysterious forests swallow the dying sun and return to your hotel after spanning river beds and forests and take rest, for every sunrise in Corbett brings along a new adventure.

To make the most of the time that you have set aside for this vacation and add different flavours to the trip, you can enjoy various fun filled activities in the jungle land- Corbett. When in the arms of nature, these are the few things that you can mark on you to-do list. Come and explore the unspoilt and timeless beauty of Corbett and soak in the fun!
