Here every year numbers of tourist are increasing because of good sighting of Leopard and other animals. I have shared below the distance between Delhi to Jim Corbett and how to book the Jeep Safari online with my experience of Safari.
A full day spent in Jim Corbett national park with a feeling of nature
It was an incredible feeling when I started my journey to Jim Corbett National park for 01 night and 02 days only. Jim Corbett is a national park where every day, numerous people come to watch wild animals.
Everyone was excited for the Jeep Safari
We began the jeep safari around 02:00 pm from the wild exotica resort with our expert driver Mr Pradeep Pathak. He is transporter cum, my friend. It took half an hour time to reach the Jhirna gate for a permit checking. We all had shown our original id proof to get into the park. Please make sure whenever you are booking an online jeep safari and mention the name of the visitor. That should be the same on your id proof. Otherwise, the forest department does not allow any person.
Guidance by Guide in National Parks
Our guide instructed us to keep a shut mouth and don’t get down into the park, keep watching all the sights. Because nobody knows where are the wild animals? But the guide has some knowledge about the area where usually you can watch live animals.
Deer sightseeing in Jim Corbett National Park
Everyone was quiet and discovering the animals sudden we spotted a Chital (Dotted Deer) it was desirable. But one of us noised something, and the deer started to hide from us in the forest. Again we started discovering a different animal in the forest. But still, we saw a dotted deer but in a group, this time and we had also captured the portraits of deer’s in the National park.
The guide instructed to turn the vehicle near Kosi River
Our guide had advised us to reach near the Kosi River. Because of the utmost Leopard and wild elephant come to drink water from the river in Jim Corbett. Our driver Mr Pradeep Pathak had turned the Jeep to river Kosi. But the way to Kosi was not as good as we had passed. Because there were no paths, the only mentor can guide us for that.
Waited at the Kosi River for a while
We had expected on the shore of the river, but we could not watch the animals. So the guide suggested us to move for further area. While doing jeep safari we had watched the yellow colors, dormitories, and forest houses. The outer territory of forest houses and apartments was covered with electric fencing to stop the animals from getting inside.
A herd of Wild Elephants inside Jungle
We were about to finish off our 28 km journey inside the jungle and was little petty. We could not discover any big animal. But unexpectedly, I watched a tall elephant while getting into the dense forest was not a single elephant. It was a herd of elephants, and our guide told us on the upfront existed a tall elephant is a male and behind him three kids and two female elephants. We could not stop our Jeep for a long time there. Because of the male elephant was trying to hit us.
Corbett National Photography
Everyone was busy in watching the animals. But I had a different interest in the park. I like to click the photos & make the videos. In my complete tour, I had captured many images which include animals and flora and fauna. If you are a photographer or a blogger and want to capture the right moments, I would recommend you stand all the times in Jeep Safari because you don’t know when a picture moment is on your way.
The essence of Jim Corbett
Corbett national park is a dense forest where you can take the complete breath. Which we usually not able to take the in cities. The cause of pollution and duties in cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad.
Cannot get down from the Jeep Safari
Our guide had strictly warned us to never get down from the Jeep until they allow. He had stopped the Jeep near a forest house and dormitories. There many other guests were also standing for the washroom.
Complete Jeep safari
It was a great experience in the jeep safari, and I would recommend people to never noise during the Safari. Because you can miss the chance, you locate the animals.
