Talking about the safari zones here, there are different zones for safari namely Jhirna, Dhela, Sitavani, Bijrani, Dhikala and Durgadevi. One can access these zones by Gypsy when going for Jim Corbett Safari, except Dhikala zone. Guests staying at Dhikala zone can only go for safari in Gypsies other guests going for a day visit Jim Corbett safari in Dhikala have to go via Canters.

It is highly recommendable to take a jeep for Jim Corbett Safari instead of Canter. Dhikala is a high rating zone but going on a canter will not be viable if you want to do some serious sightings. The reasons behind that first of all the canters going for Jim Corbett Safari are big and make a lot of noise. Most animals are frightened by the commotion and sighting becomes difficult. There are are more then fifteen people which adds to more noise. The Canters when going for Jim Corbett Safari do not go to the by-lanes and off-road tracks, so it adds to one more reason of less sightings.

When booking a Jim Corbett Safari the points to be kept in mind are-

  • The earlier you book your Jim Corbett Safari the better it is. Permits are limited in number and the more you delay booking your Jim Corbett Safari the higher are the chances of not getting a permit. The permit distribution is controlled by the forest department and if a zone for a particular slot get's sold out then their is no option but to either change your zone or slot.

  • There are no good or bad zones for Jim Corbett Safari, Tiger sightings mainly depend on your luck and tracking skills of your jeep driver/Naturalist.

  • Both morning and evening slots for Jim Corbett Safari are equally good, the theories stating that a particular time is better for Jim Corbett Safaris are totally baseless. Dusk and Dawn are considered to be the times when Tigers are on the move, but again there can be no set theories and animal movements can't be restricted to timings.

  • Wearing earthy colors, not making noise during the safaris, following what your guide/driver says are some of the things which can increase the chances of sighting during your Jim Corbett Safari.

  • Many a times we have to wait for long intervals during our Jim Corbett safari for spotting animals. Wild animals can hide in the undergrowth for hours at a stretch and if disturbed they might not turn up at-all. So patience is another virtue required to make your Jim Corbett Safari a success.
