Corbett Dhikala Tour Package, Corbett National Park
The Dhikala area of Corbett National Park is probably the finest to observe wildlife in its natural habitat. The huge expanse of the grasslands, called "Chaurs" are the attraction of this area of the Park. The opportunity of going on an Elephant ride for wildlife viewing is available from Dhikala besides a network of observation towers situated at the edge of the forest which are approachable by 4 Wheel Drive Jeeps. The location of the Dhikala Forest Lodge offsets its basic accommodation- though these facilities have been immensely improved - it is situated deep in the heart of the forest and wildlife can be observed can from the verandah of your room.
The rooms at Dhikala have been renovated but basic by your standards.
The rooms are clean, with floor tiling and attached English style flushing toilets. Showers do exist and the mixers seldom work - bucket baths are recommended, in case of malfunction. Running hot and cold water is erratic and we suggest mineral water for brushing the teeth.The lodge has electricity with supply timings and there is a back up generator. Wildlife films are shown every alternate evening in a make shift theatre and the lodge boasts of a fine wildlife library.
We are a personalized service organization managed by Wildlife, Bird watching and Fishing experts, and the pioneers of Wildlife Safari Tours to Corbett & Dudhwa National Parks. Our overnight tours to Dhikala & Gairal Lodges inside the Corbett Park are a must for the Wildlife enthusiast, for a complete visit to this natural heritage of Corbett Park.
We at "Tigerland Safaris & Tours" carry our own clean bed sheets, pillow cases, towels, table cloths, hot water bottles, mosquito repellent coils and other necessary items to provide comfort in the wilds. The restaurant serves only vegetarian Indian, Chinese & Continental food - the crockery is stone ware. Liquor is not available and allowed but some guests do carry their medicinal stock. A stay at Dhikala is an experience and recommended for the "adventurous & forgiving wildlife traveler"...
