Jim Corbett National Park

The Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve is named after a famous British hunter, James Edward Corbett (also known as Jim Corbett), who was popular among the locals because it freed them from the tigers that attacked them," our driver and guide informed, Ayyub Shifa, as we enter the reserve. However, the hunter transformed into a protector of nature became a prominent voice in the defence of wildlife. The Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve was inaugurated in 1936 under the name of Hailey National Park before being renamed Ramganga National Park. Only in 1957, after the death of Edward Corbett, the reserve took its name.

There are four entrances to the park: those in the areas of Sitavani, Jhirna, Dhikala, Bijrani and Durga Devi, also known as Loha Chaud. When we enter the Jhirna area, a light rain unrolls a wet carpet as we begin our safari while we rocked in the back of the Jeep Safari in Jim Corbett. Contact us for more info.
