Day 2 and Day 3
Get up early around 6 AM and start your day with a hot cup of tea. Today, you will be entering the Jim Corbett National Park.
Start off to reach the Forest Entry gate. Complete the forest entry formalities and enter the park. As soon as you enter, you would be transferred to a magical land where the great hunter and conservationist Jim Corbett use to roam in search of tigers and man-eaters.
The landscape of Corbett with its geographical location between the Himalayas and Terai, and the streams, rivers, and ridges crisscrossing the terrain, present Corbett with a remarkable variety of landscapes.
This would be our first safari when we would enter the forest. We would be making our way through the thick evergreen and beautiful Sal forest. We would be stopping to look and observe the various mammals and birds that would encounter on our way. Corbett has more than 586 species of resident and migratory birds. Our keen eyes will spot many of them, including Black francolins, quails, various doves and flycatchers, hornbills, woodpeckers, and Peafowls, who are at this time of the year decking themselves up to woo their females. Truly Corbett is a birdwatchers paradise.
Reach our guesthouse in Dhikala/Gairal/ Bijrani and complete the check-in process.
Have lunch and get ready for the afternoon safari. At about 2:30 PM, the excitement for the evening safari starts. This time, a brilliant time for Photography. At most of the grassland places, you would find inclined lighting, making the photographs stunning. Corbett is one place where you get greens in the backdrop irrespective of the season.
Learn to identify the different wildlife species that you encounter and their significance. Listen to the call of roosting birds, the call of eagles as they soar the evening skies, learn to identify birds by observing their wing patterns.
All the while, try to listen and see for any sign for the king of the jungle, the tiger. All the Jungle folks will ensure that not a single moment in the safari would be dull. At about 6.30 PM our jeeps will start racing back towards the residential area. Post-safari, the adrenalin will be pumping and all of us will be excitedly discussing what we saw and what we missed. One need not feel sad about what one misses because; Corbett has so much to offer that it is impossible for everyone to take everything!
Dinner would be ready by 8 pm and we can turn in early in anticipation of the next morning’s safari! Of course in the night we can hear calls of the barking deer of cheetal or langoor warning the fellow forest dwellers the presence of the Tiger!
Nights time in the jungle is really a time when everything else in life seems insignificant and you can give forget all your worries. Listen and enjoy to the sounds of the jungle at night and try to identify the bird which just gave a call or the animal that made the sound while making a hasty retreat.
Indulge in a bit of storytelling, sharing your own jungle stories or listen to the jungle adventure stories that would be shared by others. Share your photographs that you have clicked in the day and learn whether any improvements are needed.
Wake up call. Get up and get ready for the morning safari. Enjoy the safari and come back to have a sumptuous breakfast.
Participants can relax, enjoy the surroundings, have lunch and then prepare for the evening safari.
Optionally, participants can also sit in a machchan wherein you would be able to observe wildlife from an elevated platform. Step into the shoes of the great shikari’s of the past and try to shoot the wildlife by your camera.
Start evening safari and enjoy the cool evening breeze blowing in the forest, learn to identify different bird and mammal calls. The guides will keep on educating you about the ways of the jungle, imparting knowledge about its different denizens all the while trying to locate the big cat for you.
Come back from Safari, have snacks, freshen up and the group would have a lively discussion about the various sighting and happenings in the safari.
This would be followed by review of photographs and exchange of tips with advice if needed for improvements needed.
Have a sumptuous dinner and retire for the day!
Checkout from our accommodation and get ready to travel back. Travel back to Ramnagar to the same resort we have stayed. The travel time would be again a safari through the forest till we reach the gate.
Have snacks, relax, browse through your photographs and discuss what all you saw during the tour. This would be a time when you would recollect all the memories of the past 3 days.
Have dinner at about 9 PM and make your way back to the Ramnagar Railway station. The train from Ramnagar to Delhi would be an overnight train which would reach Delhi Railway station at 4 AM.
Board the train to Delhi and say a goodbye to Corbett with a promise to return again. The tour would end here but as we head back to our home, we will always remember this beautiful place and the wonderful experience we would here with the new friends that we met on this tour.
