Corbett Tiger Reserve is one of a very few tiger reserves in India that allow guests to stay overnight inside the park’s boundaries, offering a greatly enhanced opportunity for early morning 4x4 drives or elephant-back safaris.
The reserve’s 1288 square kilometres adjoin neighbouring reserve forests and wildlife sanctuaries, forming perhaps the largest and most crucial band of forest and wild habitat of the great Himalayan foothills. Dominated by the tall hardwood sal tree with a great diversity of other semi-tropical floral compositions, these forests offer perhaps the most crucial and viable chance for the long-term survival of the Bengal tiger. Corbett’s vast open grasslands, surrounded by towering wooded hills and bisected by the meandering Ramganga River, are also the perfect backdrop to observe and photograph herds of wild Asian elephants.
Our guided wildlife tours give wildlife photographers and wildlife enthusiasts the chance to view the reserve’s showcase species whilst sensitively respecting the diverse and natural landscape that befits the experience of entering the tigers’ home forest. This privilege is extended even further when staying at Vanghat as due to the lodge’s unique location, guided explorations within the reserve by foot are permitted, something not allowed in any other tiger reserve or national park.
