In Jim Corbett National park, tourists are given different safari options like Canter Safari, Jeep Safari & Corbett landscape safari and here you can find all the relevant detail regarding safari booking for Jeep Safari and Canter Safari.

As the Corbett national park is divided into different zones, with safari, you can explore these zones in the best manner and with full safety. The main visitable zones of the park are Dhikala zone, Durgadevi Zone, Jhirna Zone, Dhela Zone, and Bijrani Zone. The procedure and formalities of safari bookings are taken care of by forest officials according to the guidelines of the forest department of India. So, you need to know that there will be no interference of us with safari driver, safari zone selection and naturalist as all of these things are assigned as per forest officials. The park has a great density of tiger population, but sighting tigers in their natural habitat fully depends on your luck and chance. The equal or healthy distribution of vehicles for safari and other formalities are managed by an automated computer system in respective zones.

The safari Jeep will stay with you as long as you stay at the forest house. One can book night stay accommodation for a maximum of three nights in any of the forest guest houses in the Jim Corbett National Park. During your stay at the FRH, you can go for the Jeep safari in the morning shift as well as in the evening shift. The maximum duration of both shifts is three and a half hours. The morning shift starts after the sunrise and the evening shift ends before the sunset. In order to reach any of the FRH in Dikhala zone, you have to enter into the forest through the Dhangarhi gate where you have to show the accommodation permit and your identity card to the forest officials. The Dhikala FRH is the most sought after rest house as it is located at the core of the zone. It will take around 1 and half hour to reach Dhikala FRH from the Dhangarhi entry gate. All other forest rest houses are located on the way to Dhikala FRH.

The night stay facility in any of the forest rest houses in the Dhikala zone is available between 15th November and 15th June. In order to make a night stay at the forest rest houses in Dhikala zone, you have to book your accommodation well in advance before visiting the Corbett as there is a very high rush of wildlife tourists for the night stay inside the forest and the availability of rooms is limited. The Indian and SAARC nationals can book accommodation in the forest lodges of Dhikala maximum 46 days in advance, while the visitors of other nationals can make the accommodation booking a maximum 91 days in advance. Along with the accommodation booking, you also have to hire the Safari Jeep to visit the FRH.

A safari Jeep can carry a maximum of 6 adults and 2 children (below 11 years) apart from a driver and a guide, so, you have to decide according to the number of people in your group that you need one Jeep or more. To keep all the hassle of these bookings away, you can take our Dhikala Forest Lodge tour package which includes the night stay permit in Dhikala FRH, Jeep Safari, and a mandatory Naturist/Guide fee. With our package, you can enjoy your wildlife holiday in the forest rest house of Dhikala without any hassle.
