Jim Corbett National Park has gained popularity due to the extensive work done by the famous conservationist and writer Jim Corbett. Established in 1936, the national park has been named after its founder, Jim Corbett. Once known as the Hailey National Park, this popular reserve has the distinction of being the first to be awarded the status and the title of national park.

With the help and support from World Wildlife Fund, the park came under the aegis of Project Tiger in 1973. Spread over an area of about 520 sq. km, out of which 330 sq. km forms the core area, the park supports mixed deciduous and Sal forests, and Savannah grasslands. Owing to its location in the Himalayan low lands, many water bodies flow through the park, supporting the diverse vegetation.

The park is an abode to 580 bird species, 50 mammalian species and 25 reptile species. Apart from a number of nocturnal and diurnal species, the park is also home to various species of deer and wild boars. However, centre of attraction of the park is its tiger population. At the park, tourists can view leopards, jungle cats and many other animals.

"A bit terrified" new review

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Before entering the Corbett I was thinking about the Bollywood movie 'Kaal' and I was feeling terrified somewhere in my heart and bit sceptical about the arrangements of park authorities regarding security and safari.

"Difficult to spot Tigers" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Out of 10 safaris, 2 get to see the tigers. Keep your cameras handy. Not much activities to do, just sit back and relax. Do carry your medicines, small snack packets and odomos.

"An awesome place for photographers"

Awesome place for jungle lovers. Specially for those who enjoy wild life photography. Morning jungle safari is good experience. In short visiting Corbett was worth. Value for money, carry your camera if you are fond of photography.

"Charm visit, get a glimpse of Tiger"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
In December, 2014 our department had an official trip to Jim Corbett. Trip was full of fun & excitement since entire department was travelling together. We took our train from Old Delhi Railway station. This was my 3rd visit to Corbett. Last 2 times have been with family & friends.

We stayed at Corbett Riverside resort which is within the vicinity of national park. We had a full day tour of the park via tour bus. My Third visit to Corbett was a charm & I was able to catch a glimpse of a Tiger & shouted in time for many colleagues to also see it. Next day, resort had some outdoor activities planned for us. It was all in all a great visit.

"Excellent place for sighting birds, tigers, elephsnts and gharials"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Its totally worth a visit, when taken at the right time and right place. Best time is to visit between Nov and March. And since it has many zones, Dhikala zone should be the preferred one. A chance to sight tiger in its natural habitat makes it special.

"A biggest attraction"

  • 3.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
The biggest attraction for any visitor to Corbett national park, is the jungle safari. I felt its too commercialised. They release more than 10-15 jeeps at a time in a small area, which leads to lot of commotion and noise and you do not get to see even a deer inside the jungle! I found fellow visitors howling, laughing which should be prohibited when you are inside the forest. It needs lot of discipline and organisation. It was disappointing.

Bad luck we could not see TIGER, but yes it was a very interesting Adventure tour. Jeep Safari was good, guide was well informative. If you carry camera it is chargeable, Mobiles allowed, book your safari in advance during peak season i.e October to March.
