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.

Name to be Changed

Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve should be renamed as Ramnagar Deer Park as you can spot nothing but deers here. I don’t know why the safari takes place as the guide himself said that Togers are nocturnal animals and hunt in the night. The Gypsys and the Canters make so much noise that even if there was one, he would run away with the noise. Only battery cars should be permitted in such zones so that noise pollution is controlled and the safari is more silent with higher possibility of sighting wolf animals

Jim cirbett national park

Experience the exhilarating wildlife safari offered here. Closely admire the 400 species of flora and fauna that are found at the Jim Corbett Park. It is also an abode to the endangered Royal Bengal Tigers. So pack your bags and embark on this expedition and tag it as jungle diaries

Jungle Safari Wilderness

Must Visit Place, Jungle Safari was a must do thing out there, One must Visit Dhikala if have one-night extra time to stay but if not then Bijrani is a must go Zone with lots of Dears, Tigers and Wild Elephants waiting to thrill your visit in their home. Note:- Prebooking will be good to safari (Morning timings (05:00 A.M. to 09:00 A.M.) is good to feel wilderness out there)

Didn't see tiger

We were unlucky not to see a tiger but there were many animals visible. I loved the jungle and would love to visit again. It will be more adventurous if stayed at the resort inside the jungle. People staying there were able to see tigers at night.

A place for nature and animal lovers

A very good place to visit where you can see the forest from near and can trace the different animals inside the reserve including tiger. Avoid heavy bags and must carry your ID card.

Thrilling but disappointing

Visited Jim Corbett with a group of friends and to be honest I was disappointed. There's nothing much to see in the Park itself. We stayed in the "The Golden Tusk" which was very close to the Jhirna Gate hence obviously we went to the Safari from Jhirna, Safari was a complete turn off and you didn't really see anything. However is you have your own Car and looking for a road trip through the Jungle you can try and drive to Lansdowne via Murchulla from Ram Nagar, the 200 Km drive is through the dense forest and mountain ranges and is a good experience. Just make sure you reach Lansdowne before dark as it does get a little unsafe to drive through the Jungle after dark especially with no conveniences for miles, also make sure to top up your fuel tank :)

Explore the Wilderness

But do not really go with the hopes of spotting a tiger! I went with a group of college friends to Jim Corbett, and it was a fun evening. The travel in the jeep, through the rough roads, spotting birds and animals in between, and the unlimited jokes together coined a memorable day for sure. Although however hard we tried and whatever routes we went on we could not spot a tiger, just his footprints. There were some cool spots in between for clicking amazing pictures. If you have the bandwidth try planning an overnight stay in the camps, it will definitely be a rejuvenating and exciting experience. There was a fpod point that we stopped at mid way where we were able to meet our entire group, catch up the experience so far, enjoy tea coffee and some light snacks and also freshen up. Carry a good sunscreen, goggles, caps and scarfs along when you're on the safari.

Unwind yourself by getting into the wild

Located at almost a distance of 250 km, Corbett could be ine of the best weekend gateaway. To book a safari online, one has to go through the procedure 30-45 days in advance. Taking a safari in the early morning is one of the best option to not miss spotting animals..Dont forget to carry a camera..One can rent a binocular from the entry gate.You can either take a gypsy safari or a cantar safari depending on the time you have in hand.Carry some dry food with you because no refreshment is available inside. March onwards is the best time to visit here..

Visit to this place with no expectations

Visit to Corbett was waste of time and money. We had gone early morning. We were on our honeymoon.My husband had lot of expectations that he would be able to spot tiger but we didn't. The guide took us early in the morning with high expectations. We could only see deer, peacock, elephants. I felt it was waste. if you want to enjoy the jungle safari. you can enjoy but don't go with an expectations that you would see tiger. if you see than your lucky.
