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.

"Visit to this place is waste of money"

  • 1.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Waste of money, no Tigers spotted. Safari is only upto 5 km to and fro. No Tigers are seen in this range. There is a guide to whom you have to pay 500 Rs at the time of going which is total waste as there is a straight road for safari which does not require any guide to show the damn way. The jungle is good and enjoyed the ride through it.

"Amazing Forest experience"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Jim Corbett is an amazing place to relax and recreate if you are looking for a short break from your busy and hectic city schedule. The feeling of staying near to a forest area gives the much needed peace and break from the hus hus city life.

Jungle Safari in the jeeps is a must do along with other attractions like Elephant safari near the river banks, bird watching and other outdoor activities like Rappelling, Rock climbing etc.

However, it is highly recommended to plan well in advance and book the jeep safari through the government website as the entry permits are limited and the booking commences 45 days in advance. Further, visit to Dhikala area should be preferred as night stay inside the forest is mandatory and included in permit reservation.

I would suggest to carry a good camera and binoculars during the jeep safari. And even if you are not able to get reservation through the government website, don't be disappointed; you can still plan for the visit and do the Sitabani jeep safari which do not require any permit. However, probability of animals sight in Sitabani jeep safari are much less, but, being inside the fresh air of the forest for 3 hrs is an awesome experience in self.

"Tiger hunt"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
We took two safari trips - Bijrani and Jhirna zones. Though we did not sight tigers but the experience of riding jeeps through the vast forest was beautiful, getting into the lap of nature. We did see many fresh tiger pug marks (the guide said not more than ten minutes old) and saw much jungle wildlife.

"Truly an amazing place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It's truly an amazing place. Once you experience a jungle safari in Dhikala Park you would be loving it and it's a never forgetting experience. You would see many groups of Elephants, Birds, Deers and if lucky you may also see a Tiger wandering around. It is pretty costly but it's worth to spend.

Corbett National Park is an amazing place if love to watch wild animals or want to spend some time with nature. I went there last month on an office tour with my friends. We have enjoyed nature's wild life in Jim Corbet and Corbett National Park offers the Corbett wildlifes tour, Jungle safari tour and the other various tour packages.
