Forktail Creek is situated in the midst of a dense Sal forest on
the north-eastern periphery of Corbett Tiger Reserve. Corbett
National Park is India's first and one of her finest National
Park. Owing to it's geographic location, Corbett supports a rich
variety of habitats and is extremely rich in bio-diversity.
Camp Forktail Creek offers one a great "jungle" experience in
the land Jim Corbett once roamed. Situated in the village of
Bhakrakot, camp is surrounded by mixed deciduous forests that
are extremely rich in wildlife and bird-life. Hikes in these
forests are very rewarding for bird-watching, apart from the
pleasure of sighting animals on foot.
Camp is named after the Forktails that visit these forests in
the winter months, which along with other species make the area
a favorite birding ground in northern India.
Other excursions include game drives and elephant rides in the
National Park, angling for the mighty Mahseer on the Ramganga
River, overnight or multi-day trips to Dhikala forest rest house
within the National Park, multi-day elephant safaris, day hikes
or overnight treks in the surrounding forests, jeep safaris to
old forest bungalows strewn all over the Kumaon & Garhwal
Camp was started in 2000, essentially to be a place where people
could be one with the Indian jungle.
We got into this for the wildlife activities- to make people
understand, discover and respect the jungle and be comfortable
We have done little to change the forests around us, instead
efforts have been made to regenerate forest trees within our
land, maintain our 'no-electricity' status and have a basic,
simple, yet elegant home for our guests.
