What to expect from the tour

As soon as you enter the Dhikala zone, expect thrilling moments with the Royal Bengal Tigers. Ready your cameras to be under alert to capture the wildlife that comes your way. A bewitching Tiger may cross your path while you are soaking in the bliss of the jungle. Since Dhikala zone is huge and has varying landscapes, the Tigers can be spotted against mind-blowing backdrops. Maybe in the middle of the grassland or drinking the water from the Ramganga River or lurking behind the tall trees. Whatever the scene is, capturing the wild Tiger amidst their natural habitat is a blessing.

The Asiatic Elephants of the reserve will be in the queue to be captured in their carefree behaviours. You can see them having a good time with the herd or bathing in the Ramganga River sprinkling water from their trunks or the pushing the little calves to move forward. If Lady Luck is in favour, the hypnotic Leopards can be seen walking gracefully. The rare species of Otters, Yellow-throated Marten and Fish-eating Crocodiles may also catch your attention.

The true excitement at Dhikala occurs when you find pug marks of the wild animals and track them to find their location. While tracking, you may be signalled by a prey of the presence of a predator. The non-verbal communication within the wild surely intrigues the human kind. While you are busy spotting the land animals, the busy birds chirp in between to seek your attention and probe you to photograph them. Brown Fish Owl, Grass Owl, Ruddy Breasted Crake, Black Francolin and many more species of birds can be sighted.

The ideal time to visit Jim Corbett National Park is during the winters between November and February. This is the time when most of the zones inside the reserve are open and the conditions are favourable for spotting many species of animals and birds. Birdwing team rightly prepares you for the wildlife photography adventure. If you love Elephants, then May is the right time. They congregate near the grasslands and visit the Reservoir during dawn and dusk posing for photography.

Travelling with Birdwing, you will be accompanied by a wildlife and photography expert to enhance your knowledge on the both. You will have a group of like-minded people who motivate you with their energy and enthusiasm to make the most of your photography tour. You will not only upgrade your understanding on photography but also learn about nature in a lot more detail.

Once the tour is over, you find yourself a level higher in your knowledge on nature and photography. You will have innumerable pictures of animals and birds in their territory and the picturesque landscapes of the national park. The journey to capture the lifestyle of wildlife and their behaviours leaves you refreshed and wanting for more until your next time

How is it?

Located in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand, Jim Corbett National Park takes you to the times of Sir Jim Corbett. The vibes of the forests are infectious as you move around in search of the enigmatic wild animals. This is where Sir Jim Corbett carefully tracked and hunted man-eater Tigers to protect the lives of humans.

While on the Safari, it can be a possibility to watch a Tiger in action to satiate the hunger hunting herbivorous prey like the Sambar Deer, Ghorals or the Chitals. Or otherwise feasting on the previous day’s kill.

The Jim Corbett National Park is divided into several zones. Dhikala is the largest zone in the area with varied landscapes from Salwood forests to vast grasslands and narrow valleys. The wild Asiatic Elephants can be spotted in the grassland area roaming around in herds. Leopards, Sloth Bears, Spotted Deer, Sambar Deer, Crocodiles and other reptiles also appear in front of you with 550 species of birds
