Creek is a small jungle camp located on
the north-eastern periphery of Corbett Tiger Reserve, India (23 kms from the
town of Ramnagar). It is set amidst dense Sal forests and accommodation is in
ocally handcrafted ensuite mud huts or large ensuite safari tents. Elaborate
and sumptuous home-cooked meals accompany each trip with enjoyable, courteous
and knowledgeable naturalists, who have been in the region most of their
lives. Camp is in a village which does not have electricity but ample lighting
is provided with solar powered lamps and lanterns and candles.
Dhikala Forest Rest
House Complex is the largest tourist rest house complex within Corbett Tiger
Reserve. It stands atop the left bank of Ramganga River overlooking the
expansive grasslands called 'chaurs' further below which is the huge Ramganga
reservoir, the heart of Corbett. The grasslands of Dhikala are home to a small
but endangered population of Hog Deer. Being the largest complex,
accommodation varies from Simple dormitory bunk beds to more comfortable
rooms to the old heritage building in middle of the complex called the “Old
FRH”. Over the last few years each place of stay within the Tiger Reserve,
has been tastefully restored, making it a very pleasant stay. In addition, the
team from Camp inspects and readies each room prior to the arrival of our
guests. Essential toiletries, bed and bath linen are taken from Camp and
replaced for the duration of your stay. Meals at Dhikala are at the restaurant
in the complex which serves wholesome clean vegetarian food.
