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 Jungle Lodge 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.
