Do And Do Nots In The Jim Corbett National Park

  1. Please enter the Jim Corbett National Park after taking the necessary permits.
  2. Please accompany a Nature Guide for spotting the wildlife and the scenic landscapes.
  3. * Drive slowly in the National Park. Enjoy the elephant and jeep safari but avoid the disturbance to the wildlife.
  4. * 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.
  5. * Wear less bright clothes as the bright clothes distract the animals attracting their attention. or strong perfumes.
  6. * Don't carry gun or a pistol. Feel free to shoot snaps with a camera.
  7. * Do light campfires or smoke in the forest.
  8. * Don't get off your vehicle at a point where it is not allowed.
  9. * Keep the park pollution-free and litter free by disposing off the whole garbage into the bag provided.
  10. * Consumption of non- vegetarian food and alcohol is strictly prohibited inside the national park.
  11. * Never forget to bring your binoculars.
  12. * Do not make any noise. Listen to the silence and the symphony of the forest. Talk, only if necessary, in whispers.
  13. * Do not smoke. It is against the law, disturbs animals and poses a serious fire hazard to the forest.
  14. * Avoid using a flash while photographing wildlife. Use natural light. An animal's eyes are very sensitive and you will startle them with a burst of blinding light.
  15. * During winter, wear sufficient warm clothes as the temperature in the evening and early morning 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.
  16. * 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.
  17. * Keep a safe distance from large animals (30 meters/150 ft- the length of three buses is recommended.)
  18. Always keep children in immediate sight. They are often the same size as many animals’ prey.
