Corbett is an excellent place to spend a few days in the lap of nature, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. A six hours drive from Delhi, Corbett National Park is among one of the most visited national parks of the country. Our property, Bijrani Jungle Camp, turned out to be one of the best I have stayed in around Corbett. There are 4 zones of Corbett park: Bijrani, Dhikala, Jhirna, Sitabani, Dhela & Durga. Corbett Camp is situated just 500mtrs ahead of Bijrani Zone Entry Gate and the best part of the property is that its inside the jungle, not too much in the interiors but you get a good feel of living inside the jungle.
After an easy booking process with The Himalayan Cove, we were excited to be there as soon as possible. Although our trip dates were goofed up by them, they ensured that we dont face any issues during our stay. We did a late Check-In, so the staff ensured that we get our food super fast because our safari jeep was waiting for us. In fact just after our very first lunch, we realized that the food served truly stood out and was simply divine, homemade, finger-licking. Never did either one of us ever think that we would be complaining about overeating by the end of the trip, but we all did.
It was time for the safari, we had booked an evening slot, timing 2-5pm. The entire journey through the jungle was exciting, as we all were doing it for the first time. The picturesque jungle and the landscapes were simply beautiful, each & every moment was filled with adrenaline rush. Every nook and turn that we did made us feel that the next stop we take will be because of the tiger, but unfortunately we did not spot any tiger, BADLUCK. But the entire safari was amazing and we gathered as much memories we could, because not every day one visits a dense forest. All we could spot were all kinds of Deer, Hornbill, Sound of Woodpecker, Big Old trees, Peacock and tiger pug marks.
Coming back to Camp, we had our tea & snacks, took a little detour of the property, which is spread in a huge area, consisting of more than 10 cottages, Dining Hall & Play zone. The rooms are all basic styled, No A/C, but equipped with Desert Coolers. The bathrooms are neat and clean. All the rooms are for TWO people, but it has space for accomodating +1.
Tips: While you check the website Himalayancove you are bound to find some package deals, but I would advise that before making any decision give them a call as you are likely to find a better deal with more options. Be sure that the dates given by you are clearly mentioned by them as same.
