Camp Forktail Creek in Jim Corbett National Park

 

Camp 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 Himalayas.

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 with it.

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.
