Have dinner and take rest. Join the team next day morning for breakfast. We will leave for Dhikala as early as possible. As we enter Dhangarhi gate in an open 4 wheel drive Maruti Gypsy, the adventure and wildlife safari to Corbett begins. The drive to Dhikala is 32 kms from the gate. We take a very slow and leisurely drive. We will be stopping at places on the way to photograph birds and landscapes. The Himalayan foothills are one of the natural wonders of the earth, with lush Sub Tropical forests and the bountiful Flora & Avi Fauna that is a tribute to the nature lover and the photographer of the wild. The Dhikala Forest rest house has a fantastic setting overlooking the Ramganga reservoir and the opportunity to see wildlife in its natural habitat is immense. As you reach the rest house, take some rest and join the group for lunch. An evening Jeep safari to the grasslands called "Chaurs", for a chance sighting of the elusive Tiger- now the cynosure of every tourists questing eye. Dhikala rest house is encircled by a solar fence for your safety - it is an unforgettable experience to sit out on your verandah and enjoy the wild sounds of the night.

Overnight stay at Dhikala Forest Lodge.

An early morning Jeep safari into the wilderness of Corbett and beyond, is the most promising way of tracking Tigers in Corbett besides other mammal species. For bird watchers Corbett is a paradise. An evening Jeep safari along the rippling Ramganga river, crossing the river at the Gathiarao fair-weather bridge to the Kanda range where Jim Corbett shot the famous Kanda man eater. The opportunity to observe & photograph wildlife in its prime habitat, is an experience one succumbs to without much hesitation. Later in the evening watch a film on the conservation efforts in Corbett Tiger Reserve.

Overnight stay at Dhikala Forest Lodge.

We will have breakfast and checkout early. Enjoy the jeep Safari in Corbett National Park, with its varied topography, diverse flora & fauna, the beauty of the meandering Ramganga river, the natural splendor of its landscapes, the Park is a precious heritage.

With the possibility of seeing 05 species of Kingfishers, Pallas & Himalayan Grey headed Fishing Eagles, Osprey, Crested Serpent Eagle and of course the Mammalia, the Safari is truly magical. The unending stretch of the virgin Sal forests, the vast texture of massive trees, plumage's of peacocks dragging the forest floor, the images of Deer jumping across the forest track, all make a tour to Corbett Tiger Reserve a veritable paradise for the avid wildlife photographer.
