Spotting some of the deadly predators along with other playful dwellers of the park has its own charm and cannot be missed at any cost! But again, if this exciting activity can be done while sitting on the back of a giant yet gentle mammal of the park, the fun and excitement will surely become double!
Elephant safari in Jim Corbett is one of the most exciting and fun frolic things to do. One of the most sought after safari options in the park, elephant safari not only allows you the closest encounter with the fascinating charm and the inhabitants of the jungles, but also takes you to some of the core areas that are almost impossible to access with jeeps or open canters.
In addition, these safaris ensures a perfect eco-tour within the park which in turn contributes to the conservation steps of the park. Conducted under the guidance of well-trained and expert mahouts, elephant safaris also ensures maximum safety, fun and excitement to the visitors.
Timings: Elephant safaris are conducted twice in a day; 06:00 – 08:00 in the morning and 03:00 – 05:00 in the evening; timing is applicable for both summer and winter. Zones: The popular zones for elephant safari are Bijrani and Dhikala.
NOTE: The safaris are conducted on the first come first serve basis and needs no prior booking.
