Do's and Don'ts in the Corbett National Park

Do's and Don'ts in the Corbett National ParkDo's and Don'ts in the Park :

* Please enter the Jim Corbett National Park after taking the necessary permits.

* Please accompany a Nature Guide for spotting the wildlife and the scenic landscapes.

* Drive slowly in the National Park. Enjoy the elephant and jeep safari but avoid the disturbance to the wildlife.

* Stick to the known and guided roads and trails. Driving off track would tamper the daily activities of animals and the growth of the trees.

* Maintain a safe distance from the animals and keep their life undisturbed.

* Please do not put on your car stereo or transistor. The quieter you are, more is the possibility of your watching the wildlife.

* Wear less bright clothes as the bright clothes distract the animals attracting their attention. or strong perfumes.

Do's and Don'ts in the Corbett National Park

* Don't carry gun or a pistol. Feel free to shoot snaps with a camera.

* Do light campfires or smoke in the forest.

* Don't get off your vehicle at a point where it is not allowed.

* Keep the park pollution-free and litter free by disposing off the whole garbage into the bag provided.

* Consumption of non- vegetarian food and alcohol is strictly prohibited inside the national park.

* Never forget to bring your binoculars.

* Do not make any noise. Listen to the silence and the symphony of the forest. Talk, only if necessary, in whispers.

* Do not smoke. It is against the law, disturbs animals and poses a serious fire hazard to the forest.

* Avoid using a flash while photographing wildlife. Use naturat light. An animal's eyes are very sensitive and you will startle them with a burst of blinding light.

Do's and Don'ts in the Corbett National Park

* Do not litter the Park. Carry all your litter back to the lodge and dispose of it there, or hand it to the guide/ naturalist, who will dispose of it properly. Encourage your guide or naturalist to pick up any litter that may be lying in the Park.

* During winter, wear sufficient warm clothes as the temperature in the evening and early moming may drop below freezing. In summer, wear a hat and dark glasses, and apply sufficient mosquito repellent. Drink a lot of water to avoid dehydration.

* Do not be disappointed if you do not see a Tiger. They are shy and elusive creatures. There are a myriad other small, yet beautiful, rare and interesting animals and birds to see in the forest.

* While walking on the nature trail, avoid stepping off the track. By doing so you are trampling on flowers, bushes and young saplings and you may disturb nesting birds. Do not attempt to approach too close to an animal. Even seemingly harmless animals can be dangerous if disturbed. Obey the instructions of your Guide or our naturalist.

* Keep a safe distance from large animals (30 metres/150 ft- the length of three buses is recommended.)

* Do not feed them! Feeding attracts animals to roadside areas where they could be in danger and creates habituated animals. Feeding also leads to the animal eating garbage. Animals eat wrappers, cans, and bottle caps which spell disaster for their digestion. Eating human foods can cause, among other things, tooth decay, gum infections and ulcers in animals.

* Do not try : Herding animals into a better scene. Approaching, cornering, following or chasing them. Throwing objects or calling out to change behaviour. Direct eye contact,even through a camera lens can be threatening to an animal.

* Do not try circling or standing around an animal by yourself or in a group. Children should never be encouraged to approach, pet or feed wildlife.

Always keep children in immediate sight. They are often the same size as many animal's prey.
