Wildlife Tours in India

Wildlife Tour Packages Visitors to India not only want to be awestruck by ancient monuments like palaces, forts and temples but many also seek the thrills of exciting wildlife views. India is home to many National Parks. There are over 80 national parks and 500 wildlife sanctuaries in India with incredibly diverse wildlife. Many visitors come to India eagerly seeking to view the tiger. The chance of spotting a tiger greatly depends on the size of the national park and the number of tigers. Reading up on India wildlife is a good idea as there is tons to chose from.

Some of the best national parks in India are :

Sunderbans, in West Bengal is a magnificent tangle of mangrove jungle that's the only one of its kind in the world. Spread over 54 islands, it extends into neighboring Bangladesh and is only accessible by boat.

Bandhavgarh in Madhya Pradesh has the highest concentration of tigers in India. It has dense green valleys and rocky hill terrain, with an ancient fort built on 800 meter (2,624 ft) high cliffs. Elephants are also available for tiger tracking in the morning and treks in the evening.

Ranthambore is the world's foremost tiger-spotting destination where tigers can still be glimpsed in the wild. It has a formidable 10th century fort and supports diverse flora and fauna including 30 tigers.

Sariska National Park, near Alwar, in Rajasthan has quite a few tigers. One of the most visited parks in India, covering 800 sq km,it is open throughout the year due to the presence of religious monuments inside the park and historical ruins . Sariska houses 10th century medieval temples and a 17th century castle on a hilltop.

Manas Tiger Reserve, in Assam, is one of the largest extending over 1000 sq miles. There are nearly a dozen rivers crisscrossing the reserve! The reserve incorporates eighteen Reserved Forests intertwined with revenue villages.

Keoladeo National Park at Bharatpur is Asia's celebrated avian wonderland. Its 29 sq km, extensive swamps and lake has a staggering number of birds - some 375 species including 200 year round residents, 150 migratory species from as far as Tibet.

The crowning glory of all and the most popular is Jim Corbett National Park in Uttaranchal - the first ever wildlife reserve of India, established in 1936, over an area of more than 500 sq km in the Himalayan foothills.

The Jim Corbett National Park is so named in the honor of legendary hunter turned conservationist, Major Jim Corbett, best known for hunting man eating tigers and leopards in the Kumaon and lower Garhwal regions in the 1920s.

The park is located just 300 km northeast of Delhi which many tourists go for eagerly. There's rock climbing, fishing, elephant, jeep, and open bus safaris along with excellent stay facilities like resorts, forest lodges and hotels.

The season is from February -June and the park is closed from mid June to mid November. Access points are the Ramnagar Railway Station (25 Km ) and Pantnagar Airport (60 Km ).

Corbett National Park is the birth place of the highly successful Project Tiger which managed to control the rapidly declining population of the tiger. The best season for game watching is winter, when the birds are also in abundance.

Common Animals

Tiger, Leopard, Smaller Cats, Sloth Bear, Himalayan Black Bear, Wild Dogs, Jackal, Elephants, Spotted Deer, Sambar Deer, Barking Deer, Wild Boar and Monkeys.

Common Birds

Places to See In Corbett

Garjia Temple : 14 km from Ramnagar, on the way to Ranikhet, is a huge rock in the midst of river Kosi. This place has been named Garjia Devi after the deity Goddess. The temple is visited by thousands of devotees from different parts of the state. A large fair is held here on kartik Poornima. Ramnagar is the last bus terminus, from where Garjia Devi Temple is 14 km.

Bijrani: The area in and around Bijrani once formed part of a shooting block. During the British period, it was much famed for the quality of game hunting that it offered to shikaris. In comparison to Dhikala, the terrain at Bijrani is drier and also has more diverse vegetation.
