Camp Forktail Creek in Jim Corbett National Park
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
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.
