Accommodation

During the safari, you will stay overnight at Rajaji Wild Trail Camp, located inside Rajaji National Park. You will be provided 12 x 12 feet double-bedded tented accommodation units. Each unit is weatherproof and well-ventilated with roll-up net windows and attached western toilets. The camp has enough parking spaces for cars and buses. For security reasons, please reach the camp before darkness, preferably before 5:00 p.m.

Staying at the Rajaji Wild Trail provides an opportunity for experiencing and appreciating the bounties of nature. Rajaji Wild Trail is a cozy jungle camp nestled in the Shivalik range of the Himalayas at Ganga Bhogpur Talla village, adjoining the Chilla Canal. Be prepared to become an environmental activist as you go through wildlife experiences that will touch your heart and mind. The enormity of the forest and the many ancient trails made by elephants are awe-inspiring.

Imagine the thrill when you come across a majestic tusker standing on the safari track, a sambhar stag belling its alarm call, and a tiger or leopard appearing, with arrogance clearly written on its feline face. The guests are taken into the jungle with trained naturalists for best wildlife experiences. The Rajaji straddling the transition zone between the Himalayas and the Gangetic plains offer truly rich birding opportunities.

The habitat includes Sal forests interspersed with Zizyphus shrub, mixed forest, and riverine grasslands. All these contribute to the rich bird diversity. Winter is the best time to visit as many migratory bird species from the high Himalayas are present.

Significantly, Rajaji is the northern limit for great hornbills and Oriental pied hornbills. Great hornbills are usually seen in pairs on tall trees, while the Oriental pied hornbills tend to congregate in gregarious, noisy flocks, usually on Bakhli (Annogeisuslatifolia) trees.

Due to the proximity of these tourism zones to Rishikesh and Haridwar, things may get crowded in the evenings and weekends. Early-morning visits are the best when birds are most active and people are not! The Ganga River, flowing naturally on the southern side, the Chilla canal on the northern side, and the Bean river bed that remains dry except during monsoons to the west provide a total fair of migratory birds on all sides.
