We highly recommend an overnight stay in a forest that is as alive in the night as it is in the day and Corbett is the only tiger reserve in the country that offers an opportunity to live within the forest. Spending a night or two in one of the park lodges provides the most immersive jungle experience and as the jungle’s nocturnal sounds lull you to a restorative sleep, you awaken fresh at dawn to a fever of wildlife activity. A naturalist shall accompany you to help interpret the ways of the jungle. While lodging within the park is spartan, we add elements of luxury with a few modern comforts to make your stay enjoyable.
An intimation of 60 days for weekend bookings and 45 days for weekday bookings would be necessary to facilitate a stay in the park.
Half Day 3-4 hrs
A jeep safari offers you the only opportunity to traverse deep into the Corbett National Park; through its hills, streams and dense jungles. The Jeep enables one to cover large areas of the park, increasing the chance of animal encounters.
The fishing experience
Experience a weekend of angling for the Mahaseer and Goonch or just enjoy a day of fishing and a picnic. Sometimes, Otter families can be sighted along the river's length while the evenings bring Deer and other wildlife to the river's bank.

Experience About Corbett Landscape
Sustainable wildlife tourism can be a highly valuable tool for conservation for generations ahead. As our youngsters are future ambassadors of the planet, we have a created a Young Ranger’s Program for our guests as a means to nurture their understanding of the jungle and the symbiotic relationships that exist here. The program focuses on how the forest ecosystem works, tracking animal footprints, identifying birds, butterflies and mammals and how we can continue to experience, enjoy and protect our wilderness areas without causing disruption to the balance of nature.
