For wildlife, photography and nature lover’s like me, Jim Corbett is nothing less than Heaven on earth. It is one of India’s first national park with highest density of tiger. If the weather permit’s one can get really good shots. It is one of the national park’s which allow overnight stay in the lap of nature. The park offers number of jungle safari’s, the one with open jeep is one of my favourite. It gives me chills even while imagining to click, elephants, crocodiles, deers, birds, hundreds of migratory birds, Oh! me and my camera both are drooling!!
The park have 5 zones – Bijrani, Dhikala, Domunda, Jhirna and Sonanadi. I’ll leave it to you to find the best one!!
