We are regular visitors of Jim Corbett and most of the time staying at Dhikala. This is inside 32 KM from Main Gate. The best season is between Early March to April End. This is centrally located area having both forest and grass land. Grass land is full of different types of deers, wild boars, langurs, elephants and above all the great Indian Tigers. We have spotted 4 tigers in a day at different locations and did the photo shoot or video. Almost in every visit we spotted tiger(s) and did not get disappointed except 1-2 occasion. Thandi Sarak is the most suitable location to see a tiger. What a beautiful beast it is. The river flowing along with the resort is awesome and you may watch heard of elephants doing bath.
The facilities are not of high class. Rooms are average, having dim light. Food quality is average but little bit expensive. However, you can't expect much of the facilities inside the jungle. At night tiger roaring fill the adventure in the mind. If you are wild life lover and that too for Tiger must visit and stay at Dhikala atleast for 2 nights. Good spotting of tiger is guaranteed.

Room Tip: Book the tour from Delhi, they are having package and relatively have better rooms.

This is the must visit part of the Jim Corbett national park.Although,travelling here is a bit tiresome, it's worth.Go for morning as well as evening safari here.Its situated right in the Middle of the forest, but the food and the services are very nice.Spotted tigers,sambhar,wild elephants,spotted deer,peacock,wild boar,and exactly 57 types of birds that I could list.According to me the elephant safari is not worth,but the jeep safari is definitely.

Room Tip: Choose a knowledgeable guide, as spotting animals is difficult without a good guide and driver. Do visit the crocodile point on your way to the rest house

We booked forest guest house through private agent(Garhawel Himalayan Expedition,NewDelhi).
The rooms were Big,Neat with a new air cooler. The travel from the entrance to the guest house itself was very thrilling!!. We went by a Gypsy Car for sight seeing inside the forest. The Gypsydriver named Shakeel knew the forest well.
We were able to see plenty of rare Birds, Monkeys, Deers, Elephants(We were chased by a wild Tusker while taking the photo). We drove away from the place. Morning & Evening Gypsy safari was worth. We went for morning elephant ride, good experience sitting on a huge beast.
Delicious food, Good service, very curtious staff.

Room Tip: Choose Dhikala Forest Guest House Annexure Rooms Only

You can not expect better service and facilities in the middle of the forest. This place has every basic facility that we need during our excursion trips to such wildlife forests. Its has amazing view of the forest and provides the best chances to trace the most wanted cats !!
Food in the canteen is good and very reasonalble in terms of cost.
Best place to stay if you are visiting Jim Corbett.

Room Tip: The ones which were used by Mr. Corbett himself are better and spacious ones with nice view of the landscape.

This place is situated in the heart of Corbett national park and offers the best chance to see much of the wildlife including the elusive and spectacular tigers. The lodge itself is very basic due to its location and it could benefit greatly from even a little development but well worth it for a chance to see the tigers which will even hunt right outside the lodge fence as we witnessed.

Take your own beer and ask your guide to stick it in the fridge when you arrive as there's no chance of getting any on site!

Room Tip: Ensure it's got working air-con
