We also organise educational and experiential learning trips for children as well as adults that help them understand the environment, its flora and fauna and the need to protect and conserve it.
Why book a safari with Dhikala Guides
Corbett National Park like most other national parks and Tiger reserves in India follows a "Roster System" for guides and 4 X 4 safari’s to regulate tourism business. The fall-out of this system is that it affects a nature travellers freedom of choice for selecting an experienced guide and a knowledgeable driver while on a safari. Ever so often guest’s are left disheartened by the safari experience in the roster system due to the driver/ guide’s lack of knowledge or experience, shortening of park rides, risky driving, etc.
