A simple way to go through the Corbett Safari

Corbett has been distinguished into different safari zones so the tourists can find an easy access to the core areas of the jungle to catch the wildlife in it. And to get into the safari locations of the Corbett, a prior reservation is needed.

The tourists can get inside the park area through the authorized vehicles after getting a permit through the respective gates. Once you get a hired jeep/ gypsies from Ramnagar, you are inside the famous safari zones of Corbett and remember you need to re-fuel your vehicle before entering into the jungle as you will not find any fuel station over there.

Another good option for you is that probably if you are in a troop, the Corbett authority will bring a day-tour on a safari canter / bus. But of course the capacities are limited; and so get ready for a prior reservation.
