A lesser know sanctuary - go for the very common elephant sightings. We were lucky enough to see a leopard - crossing right in front of our jeep. Great safari

A very nice place to visit. Though we were not able to see much of a wild life except a few deers and cocks/hens, we found the place a very picturesque.We visited a day after a heavy rain in May. As per the local guide, post rain you may not find much animals as they move deep into the forest.

There was a heavy rains and we were all drenched , mixed experience. Our driver Mahesh was good but the authorities need to be more sensitive about... More

Frankly by paying the entry fee and riding a safari gypsy if someone is expecting the wildlife to appear along the tracks, its better you spend your time in other activities. The Motichur gate of the Raja Ji National Park is located on the elephant corridor and is of critical importance for our elephants. The safari after a beer break... More

I reached there exactly at 1505 hours on 15.04.16 by car and immediately got a Gypsy (jeep) from the counter. We were two and another person waiting to share also joined us. You know, sharing with others doubles the joy. Ok. We started moving inside. Very peaceful and quiet. We could see some Peacocks here and there. Some places we... More

Like all national parks it depends on your luck whether you get to see anything substantial. I didnt see even an elephant though this park is famous for elephant sighting. All i could see were footprints of elephants, tigers and their cubs. But the forest is good, the safari is good, the drivers are well informed and guide you well.... More

In all salaries I participated before, there were two people: a driver and a ranger: one was driving, another was watching wildlife and talking to the guests. There we had just a driver who could not take his eyes off the road that was extremely bad, so we did not see any wildlife and got our mouth full of dust... More

There are three ranges that can be visited from Haridwar. Motichur, Chilla and Ranipur. Motichur is mostly Sal Forest and good for Woodpeckers. Chilla is good for Elephants and Ranipur is great for Leopards.
