Jim Corbett National Park: A safari guide's tips on the best time to visit, permits, hotels
By Toshita Sahni
The Himalayas have much more to offer than gorgeous mountainscapes and crisp weather. Its lower foothills, especially in Uttarakhand , are a haven for wildlife—buzzing with animal and birding activity all year round. Therefore, it is no surprise that India’s first-ever national park was established here in 1936. Today, we know this park as the Jim Corbett National Park, part of the larger Corbett Tiger Reserve. Unlike many other reserves in the country, Corbett is not dominated by flat, dry lands. It derives its charm from the variety of its landscapes as well as its biodiversity.
If you’re planning to visit India’s oldest national park, there’s much to keep in mind about the safari zones, timings, and regulations. Whether you’re hell-bent on spotting a tiger or just want to enjoy the serenity of the forest, it helps to have a few local insights. Naturalist Yogesh Nainwal , who is armed with six years of work experience, shares tips on what to keep in mind when planning a safari at Jim Corbett.
What makes Jim Corbett National Park special?
One of the most distinctive features of Corbett is its terrain. While some zones have steep ascents and descents, others have plains that are covered with different types of grasslands. The landscape within a single zone itself may vary greatly. Serpentine rivulets from the Ramganga river crisscross certain areas—an important aspect as animals tend to seek out these water bodies for a drink. The proximity of the Kalagarh reservoir is an added advantage. If you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the critically endangered gharial (a species of fish-eating crocodile) near the banks of the Ramganga river.
A great source of pride for the locals is also Corbett’s historical contribution to wildlife conservation. Back in 1973, the flagship conservation program Project Tiger was launched from this national park. The draft for tiger conservation applied in other reserves across the country originates from Corbett.
What to spot at Jim Corbett National Park?
The Royal Bengal tiger is the key attraction of the national park, drawing many visitors from all over the country and abroad. Besides tigers, the most sought-after animals are leopards, elephants, sambar deer and bears. According to the last census, there are around 55 mammal species in this reserve. Sightings of some lesser-known ones, such as the yellow-throated marten and the Indian pangolin, are rare but possible, says Nainwal.
Over 600 species of birds are at the park, making the park a birder’s paradise. Keep an eye out (preferably with binoculars) for cormorants, grey herons, egrets, cattle egrets, white-necked and black-necked storks, crested serpent eagles, black-winged kites, shikras, Himalayan vultures, spotted owlets, fish owls, and the scops owls. You may also get the chance to spot rare birds such as the great slaty woodpecker, ultramarine flycatcher, ibisbill, wallcreeper, Hodgson’s bushchat, bright-headed cisticola and rosy minivet, among others.
“The density of the sal forest here is very high, which makes the region a paradise for birding. However, this density also makes it slightly harder to spot animals. You have to work harder to get sightings, but in the end, it is all worth it. The guides here understand how to track the movements of the tigers, as they tend to follow specific trails as part of their daily routine. They are habituated to those particular paths because they are territorial animals,” says Nainwal.
Nainwal has had many special sightings during his time here, but the most special one is of a tiger and her cubs jumping and playing in the water. While the tiger is an important draw, he says it’s important to not focus on just the big cats. “Corbett has a lot more to offer. Some shows and documentaries make people think that they will get to spot animals, up close, as soon as they enter the park. But they forget that this is a jungle, not a zoo. Be patient,” he says.
What's the best time to go to Jim Corbett?
If you want to spot mammals, Nainwal recommends visiting in the summer between March and June. During this time, the chances of a good sighting increase manifold because the grasslands start to dry up and the visibility increases. Soon after the monsoon , the density of vegetation is very high. In this case, the only way to spot a tiger is if it comes out onto the road. While mammal sightings may be harder from November to February, winter is the perfect time for spotting migratory birds like the ruddy shelduck, storks and ibisbill.
How many safaris should you do during a 3-night stay?
Nainwal suggests visiting for four days and booking at least three to four safaris. He advises against back-to-back safaris on the same day as each ride stretches between four to five hours, and it could get hectic. Alternate between morning and evening slots on different days.
What are the safari slots at Jim Corbett?
Raj Aditya Chaudhuri
Condé Nast Traveller
There are two safari slots: morning and afternoon. At present, the morning safari is from 6:30am to 10:30am, whereas the afternoon safari is from around 1:30pm to 5:30pm. Their timings could vary according to seasons as well as zones. While the slot lasts for four hours, the hours you’d like to spend in the park ultimately is your call. However, all jeeps are required to exit the forest on time or risk a heavy fine.
The first hour in the morning inside the forest is very important and you will get the best experience then, says Nainwal. So, resist the urge to hit that snooze button and get ready to enter the jungle as soon as the shift begins. Similarly, in the evening, the guide recommends remaining inside the forest as long as you can till the shift ends around sunset.
How to book a safari permit at Jim Corbett and how much does it cost?
Visitors can book permits for jeep safaris and canter rides on the official website . Bookings open 45 days in advance for Indians and 90 days in advance for foreigners. For Indians interested in a day safari, the permit fee per vehicle is Rs1,100*. For canter rides, the tariff is Rs1,300*. The rates for foreigners are higher in each case.
While booking a permit, you will be asked for information about the jeep’s occupants. In one jeep, a maximum of six adult guests and 2 children can travel. Note: while applying for a permit, the system does not allow you to register children below the age of five, but they will be allowed to enter the park. Whoever’s details are entered first will receive updates about the jeep, etc. on the registered mobile number.
How to book a jeep and guide at Corbett?
Jeeps are assigned online after booking a permit and the fee for a jeep is Rs2,800*. Guides are assigned at the gate and are compulsory—you are not allowed to enter the forest without one. Their fee is Rs800*. If you wish to book your own guide , you will still have to pay the fee for the assigned guide.
These booking procedures could get complicated and visitors often prefer to book via local agents or the hotels they are staying at. For a stipulated fee, this third party handles the entire process of booking the permit, jeep and guide.
Which zones are the best at Corbett Tiger Reserve?
You can choose from eight zones in Corbett, which are fully functional from 15 November to 15 June. Certain zones, such as Jhirna and Dhela, are open year-round. Nainwal says the chances to spot animals are equal everywhere. But for the best sightings, he recommends exploring Garjiya first, followed by Bijrani, Jhirna, Dhela, and Durga Devi.
In the Durga Devi Zone, 70-80% of the terrain is hilly and steep, with sharp turns and hairpin bends. This zone is preferred by bird enthusiasts as the sal forests teem with birds such as the chestnut-bellied nuthatch, white-crested laughing thrush, great slaty woodpecker, white-rumped shama, white-capped redstart, and plumbeous water redstart. The Garjiya and Dhikala zones are also great for birding.
The Dhikala zone is known for its extensive grasslands that attract deer, bears, tigers, martens as well as birds. Here, you can also spot the rare gharial on the banks of the Ramganga river. This zone is only accessible via canters (16-seater small buses). If you want to explore it by jeep, you have to book a night stay at a lodge inside the Dhikala zone.
Besides jeep drives, what else can you do in Corbett?
If you are staying in the Dhikuli range, Nainwal suggests going for one of the many nature walks conducted by local guides. “These walks span two or three hours, and are a great way to get acquainted with the locals, their culture and their traditions. You may also get a chance to taste their food.” You can make inquiries at your hotel or at the safari office to book a guide. The nature trails that traverse the Kosi River and lead to the Garjia Temple are scenic and are perfect for bird-watching. Since it is prohibited to get down from safari jeeps (except at designated areas) inside park limits, such walks offer you the rare opportunity to explore the surrounding areas on foot.
There are also many adventure activities available in the vicinity, the most recent one being hot-air balloon rides . Adventure lovers can try out river rafting on the Kosi river during the monsoon season (July-October). Besides adventure activities, you can visit the Corbett Museum near the Dhangadi Gate (the entrance of the Dhikala Zone). If you’re interested in knowing more about Jim Corbett himself, head to the heritage museum dedicated to him in Kaladhungi.
What are the best hotels in Jim Corbett?
The Dhikala, Garjiya, and Bijrani zones are about 10-20 minutes away from most hotels in the Dhikuli range. The Taj Corbett Resort & Spa (doubles from Rs14,480*, book here ) is located on the bank of the Kosi river. You can enjoy outdoor activities, including hikes and camping, designed to complement your safari outings. If you have chosen the Jhirna, Dhela or the Bijrani zone, head to Jim's Jungle Retreat (doubles from Rs20,000*, book here ), which is a 10-minute drive from the Dhela zone. The 15-acre property has 18 jungle cottages and bungalow-style lodges with views of grasslands, forests and the wildlife. Aahana–The Corbett Wilderness (doubles from Rs22,000*, including all meals and taxes, book here ) , which is a 15-minute drive from Dhela, is an eco-resort with rustic-style rooms, suites and villas. The hotel also features a naturopathy centre offering a range of spa treatments.
How to get to Corbett Tiger Reserve?
Corbett is well connected by road and rail. The national park is a five to six-hour drive from Delhi. The nearest domestic airports are the Pantnagar Airport (80km drive) and Dehradun’s Jolly Grant Airport Dehradun (170km drive). There are trains from Delhi and Mumbai to Ramnagar, the railway station closest to the park.

The park is known for its diverse flora and fauna, including tigers, elephants, leopards, deer, and over 600 species of birds. It is a popular destination for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers, and offers opportunities for jungle safaris, bird watching, and nature walks.

Portrait of Corbett National Park
The southern foothills of the Himalayas, also known as the Terai, create a breathtakingly beautiful landscape that is more reminiscent of Canada than India. The evergreen, dense forests on hilly terrain, the stony riverbeds with the crystal clear waters of the Ramganga and the open steppes covered with elephant grass at Dikhala are a real feast for the eyes. Corbett has an extraordinarily diverse flora and fauna, which unite species from the high mountains and the subcontinent.
Terrain of Corbett National Park
Peculiarities of corbett national park.
With the simple and vegetarian Dikhala Forest Lodge, Corbett offers the unique opportunity among Indian national parks to spend the night in the middle of the wilderness. This is not possible in any other tiger reserve! The sacrifice of a little luxury in favour of a unique nature experience is always worthwhile. Corbett National Park bears its name in honor of the British hunter and later conservationist Jim Corbett , who spent most of his life in this part of British India known as Kumaon. Jim loved "his India" and its natural treasures – from childhood he wandered alone through the jungle and had many encounters with tigers and other dangerous animals, which he captured in his thrilling writings. He described the tiger as "the gentleman of the jungle", since he was of the firm belief that a tiger attacks humans only in the outermost emergency as as a result of an injury. Nevertheless, Jim gained fame by helping to save the inhabitants of the mountain slopes of Kumaon from notorious man-eaters. His literary works can hardly be surpassed in tension and confer an extra bit of anticipation on an impending journey to the land of the tiger.

It was amazing to book Jim Corbett safari from Big Cats Safari on 22nd Nov'22. Roohi was extremely helpful & supportive from our 1st call till the end. However, we got Jhirna zone, this has numerous water stream which nourishes the wildlife and adding the natural ambiance of the zone. The driver tried their best and shared with us his 10 yrs of experience with wild life, however, we saw group of 10 elephants, group of nearly 25 deers, group of 10 baboons, few peacocks and a jackal The complete experience was so smooth. We fully recommend BIG Cat Safari, they are the perfect service provider with experienced driver having full knowledge of the jungle, he guided us each n every thing. Thanks again Roohi for the great services!
Big cats have been very supportive throughout my booking procedure. I booked the resort and safari through them. It went very well. Thank you for the great response and support.
We were a group of 3 women senior citizens and travelled in October 2022. Roohi at Big Cat Safari was really helpful right from the start. She promptly attended to all our queries. Took extra care that we were safe and attended to at all times during the trip that was 2 nights at Langdale manor, Nainital and 2 nights at Corbett Paradiso Resort. We went on the Jungle Safari on 26th October morning, picked up at sharp 6am and it was an enjoyable experience though the tiger didn't want to see us. The Paradiso resort was just 5 mins walk from a branch of the Kosi river and we enjoyed walking along its banks admiring the clear waters. The suspension bridge (Jhoola Pool) near Garjiya temple was an amazing experience, we could walk down to the Kosi river bed. Not to miss spot. Roohi helped us find the place. She had chosen a skillful driver to be with us for the 5 days. He looked after us like family
My experience with Big Cats Safari was wonderful. They took care of the safari and also booked our accomodation in Corbett Paradiso Resort. We had back to back morning and evening safaris in the Phato region. The drivers and the guides tried their best and we saw spotted deers and even a fresh pug mark from. Tiger. The whole experience was smooth and nice!

Even though the chances of tiger sightings in Satpura Tiger Reserve are not the highest, the park offers walking safaris, a unique way to experience wildlife.

Get to know Tigers
Do you like Big Cats? Have a look at the best places to see Lynx .
Because humans hunt it and destroy its habitat, which once stretched from the Caspian Sea to the Pacific Ocean.
Tiger habitats are pretty diverse and can be found in more places than you’d think! They live in Siberia’s dense forests and roam Malaysia’s jungles. But things are not going well for these elegant cats of prey. Although the tiger has no natural enemies, it is threatened with extinction.
Photo by and (C)2007 Derek Ramsey.
The IUCN red list puts the Tiger status to endangered :
Poachers are also a great danger. They hunt the tigers because they can sell the big cats’ body parts well. Because claws, teeth, brain, and other parts are processed into medicine in traditional Chinese medicine and are in great demand. Hunting tigers as trophies have cost many animals their lives, especially in the last century.
The World Wide Fund For Nature ( WWF ) assumes that less than ten percent of the original habitat is left. The reasons are manifold. For example, mineral resources such as coal or oil are extracted in some regions. Deforestation of the rainforest is also a significant problem, as is the development of inaccessible areas by roads.
The South Chinese tiger is considered extinct in the accessible wilderness. According to the WWF species lexicon, experts assume that there are only a few isolated individuals, if at all. Therefore, the last hope of preserving the species lies in the few animals in Chinese zoos. The remaining five species now live in only 13 countries in Asia. Most of them are native to India, where it is estimated that there are about 1700 tigers.
A little more than a hundred years ago, there were still about 100,000 tigers living in large parts of Asia . There are still about 3900 animals; the Bali, Caspian, and Java tigers are extinct. Amazing animals for a Tiger Safari or Tour.
How Dangerous are Tigers?
That is why wild animals respect them. But if a trainer, for example, stumbles and loses his position of power, it can become dangerous even for him. Also, to strange tigers, he would not dare to enter the cage. By the way, in the wilderness, animals only rarely attack humans. If, for example, a shark hurts a surfer, it is only because he mistakes him for a seal. You can see this because, unlike its usual prey, it does not eat it.
Nevertheless, some people can go into a tiger or lion cage without being attacked, for example, tamers in the circus. They know their animals well and are something like the leader.
For Tiger, a human being is a big animal. And when an animal is in its enclosure, the tiger wants to hunt it because he has an innate hunting instinct.
Approximately 100 people die every year due to attacks by tigers. Probably, humans are often to blame for this themselves because they provoke the animals.
Tigers in Zoos and National Parks
The consequences for the animals are fatal: Massive damage to their health, severe behavioral disorders, and increased mortality. This Tiger Safari or Tour guide should highlight only sustainable places to go.
- Perform feats for which they are often trained by force,
- Have to change venues 50 times a year on average,
- Spend most of their time in small cages, inadequate enclosures, or in the transport wagon,
- That essential species-specific behavior such as social contacts or movement are considerably restricted or made completely impossible,
- that they have little variety or occupation,
- that they are often not fed and cared for appropriately,
- That veterinary control or care is often inadequate because there are only a few specialized veterinarians for wild animals nationwide or the circus cannot or will not afford the treatment financially,
- that in many cases the circus operators lack the necessary expertise,
- that there is no fixed winter quarters during the play-free period. Only about every tenth company can call a winter accommodation its own.
Nevertheless, animals of wild species can still be seen in many circus operations that travel around the world: Tigers, lions, elephants, rhinoceroses, giraffes, sea lions or monkeys – the range of animal species carried along is extensive. Wild animals suffer in the circus. They suffer massively, because:
Wild animals make exceptionally high demands on their keeping and accommodation. In a circus enterprise, responsible keeping wild animals is generally impossible.

Hear about our safari experiences from our happy clients
Vijay came highly recommended by a trusted friend and rightly so. The safaris by Big Cat Safari team are well planned and executed and his expertise in the field are commendable.
It was a fantastic experience to Ranthambore, well planned, managed and guided by Vijay. We not only spotted tigers but also learn a lot more about local culture, cuisines and heritage. I can definitely vouch for Vijay and his team at Big Cat Safari.
