The best way to explore the park is through the "Elephant Safari". Undisturbed by the mechanical roar of a car or jeep, open to the skies, accompanied only by the rhythmic scuff-scuff-scuff of elephant's feet and the creaks of the wooden howdah. The occasional booming of wild elephants to each other in close proximity can make you hang on tight to the wooden pole of the howdah. The ride can be a mix of moments of pure terror interspersed with long period of utter peace.
The Corbett Hideaway Elephant Safari, an exclusive elephant safari in the periphery areas of Corbett Tiger Reserve takes you through mysterious thick forests, deep valleys and rugged trails that offer a lingering thrill to the adventure seeker. This is enhanced by the cultural enigma of the land.
We take you on this thrilling sojourn in the same way the royalty of yore did, centuries ago. From the first ray of the rising sun to the evening's deepest glow; the landscape unravels the untaught harmony of the primitive wild. The grandeur of the "British Raj" is relived in an old forest rest house (FRH) built in the late nineteenth century. The aura created compliments the aura of the past century when lanterns and fireplaces were used instead of electricity and where hot bucket baths were the only way to supplement your comforts.
Whilst you are in Corbett, the mountain air will make you hungry and to satiate this "jungle" appetite, our specialty chefs will dish out just that ensemble. The emphasis is on freshness of produce, so whether it is that Indian dish or that Continental fare you have asked for, to our chefs its all in the day's passion.
We encourage our guests to travel well prepared, this ensures that we are able to organise their logistics with ease. To ensure this all transport and back end logistics is done on 4WD jeeps that are best suited for the rugged terrain of Corbett.
The abundant Airborne Species, the mysterious wild and the picturesque valley come together to offer a romantic hitherto unseen, unheard or untold. To enhance this unique experience an English speaking naturalist accompanies you through out your trip.
