About Corbett National Park

Corbett National Park lies in the Terai Arc Landscape at the foot of the Himalayas, where Bhabhar forests, Riverine forests, Siwalik foothills and the Terai floodplains all intertwine in a biodiversity-rich area the growing Himalayan Mountains which transport their silt and rock down river fed by the Himalayan rivers.

The dominant trees of the area are the towering and gregarious “Sal” (Shorea robusta) which fill the landscape and provide the feeling of being in Tiger Country.

A rare sight of gigantic grasslands as far as the eye can see at Dhikala cut by the channels of the Ramganga River is a magical sight indeed, where herds of Elephants make their home and the Tiger hunts stealthily for the herbivores that inhabit the area – yes, Tigers are known to hunt elephants too at Corbett!

The bird count in the landscape reaches close to almost 600 species, due to the vegetation-rich area and the varied habitat, making for a charming birdwatching trip at Corbett.

Tiger Safari with Sanjay Gupta and Nature Safari India.
We just finished the first half of two tiger safari tours in India. The first was on the Banhavgar National Park. Our guide was Sanjay Gupta, who had 25 years of experience in the park and with the tigers. He was wonderful, sharing his experience and knowledge throughout our three full days together. He was definitely a highlight of our trip, as a great guide makes for a great experience, whether you see tigers or not! And we did see tigers...
