Corbett’s main camp, Dhikala, beautifully situated, overlooking the Ramganga reservoir and the forested hills beyond, is 40-kms northwest of Ramnagar. You can only stray beyond the confines of the camp under armed guard, on an Elephant back or in a car or jeep.
Accommodation ranges from the 24 bunk beds in the Log Huts and other assorted spartan huts, to more comfortable bungalows and cabins.
Food is available in the lodge canteen either per day, with tempting western food, and affordable Janta meals.
There is also a Dhaba, frequented by the park staff who wit and tell of their adventures and latest sightings.
There’s also a library and reading room, where film shows on wildlife are run.
» It’s normally possible to see plenty of animals and birds from the lookout tower beside a waterhole 1-km from the Dhilkala camp. Elephant safari and jeep rides are also organised for wildlife viewing.
