Camp Forktail Creek Jungle Lodge

 
 

Camp Forktail Creek is situated in the midst of a dense Sal forest on the north-eastern periphery of Corbett Tiger Reserve. Corbett National Park is India's first and one of her finest National Park. Owing to it's geographic location, Corbett supports a rich variety of habitats and is extremely rich in bio-diversity.

Camp Forktail Creek offers one a great "jungle" experience in the land Jim Corbett once roamed. Situated in the village of Bhakrakot, camp is surrounded by mixed deciduous forests that are extremely rich in wildlife and bird-life. Hikes in these forests are very rewarding for bird watching, apart from the pleasure of sighting animals on foot.

Camp is named after the Forktails that visit these forests in the winter months, which along with other species make the area a favorite birding ground in northern India.

Accommodation
9 spacious safari tents on raised wooden floors are well spaced for privacy. Each tent has a deck and a fully functional toilet. The furnishings in each tent include a chest of drawers with a dressing mirror, twin beds with soft duvets, side tables, deck chairs and a luggage table. 2 mud huts, specially created by local craftsmen have recently replaced two of our tents. Each have thick thatched roofs, a private verandah and attached toilets. Furnishings are similar to the tents.
