Early breakfast and then drive to Corbett National Park 275 kms/6-hour drive. At the park entry gate, transfer of baggage into the safari vehicle. Take out camera equipment as the next 32kms drive to the Forest Rest House is through the forest, and one can encounter any prey or predator on the track.

The Forest Rest Houses are unique to Corbett National Park. It is only in Corbett that there is an opportunity to stay inside the national park. The complex is located on the banks of Ramganga river and overlooks the foothills of the Himalayas. It is surrounded by an electric fence which is only switched on at night. Post lunch proceed for an afternoon safari in the most scenic national park of India. Only vegetarian food is served. Return from the safari at sunset. Dinner and overnight at Forest Rest House.

The room at the reserve was a bit spartan, but Nature Safari India provides some extras. The traditional Indian food was good.
