Covering a vast area of the ecologically rich and diverse foothills of the Himalayas, the Jim Corbett National Park, part of the enormous and all-inclusive Corbett Tiger Reserve. The coexistence of the resident animals, birds and reptiles with the vast ecosphere combining the ravines and ridges of the lesser Himalayas with the subtropical and deciduous forests and minor streams makes it worth spending a good chunk of the day traversing the area. The only permissible way to do so is to avail the safari services offered at the park. There are five safari zones in the Corbett National park: the Bijrani zone, the Jhirna zone, the Durgadevi zone, the Dhela zone, and the Dhikala zone. Additionally, the Corbett Tiger Reserve also holds the Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary, also known as the Sitabani Zone, though this fall outside the Corbett National Park.
There are three types of Safaris one can opt for to explore these zones: the Canter Safari, the Jeep Safari, and the Elephant Safari. The safaris need to be an essential part of the visit to this park if one wishes to see the exquisite species of animals like the Royal Bengal Tiger, jackal, wild boar, Himalayan bear, elephant, barking deer, sambar deer, hog deer, Sloth, Himalayan goral and many other species of animals, birds and reptiles roaming about naturally in this protected area. The safaris are organised once in the morning and the evening, and each zone has a restriction on the number of vehicles allowed within at a given point in time. Due to the varied topography of the region, the safaris are limited to the sunshine period of the day. This makes it easier for tourists to notice the scampering wildlife as well.
The period between November and February is considered the ideal time to visit the Corbett Tiger Reserve, as all the zones of the park may be visited during this time.
