A friend DrVikram Malik who is regular to Corbett, (not a tour operator) but an wildlife enthusiast. Today gave me details of Costing about how he does his own Safaris in this one of the most beautiful parks of #India.
He books directly on Online Portal
for night stays inside the Corbett Tiger Reserve and the most availability he gets is Dormitory accomodation in the Sarpdhuli Rest House inside Dhikala range.
So how much does he spend on a 3 nights/4 Days trips ....
He books accomodation ONLINE mostly Dormitory inside the forest
He pays approx 2200 rs for 3 Nights stay in a dormitory for 1 pax
For Exclusive Gypsy (only he is the occupant of that gypsy, the best for a photographer) he pays about Rs 2500/- per day to the Driver for gypsy and Fuel extra i.e. Rs 2200/- approx for all 4 Days
Now as Sarpdhuli FRH has a kitchen with a cook, he buys the groceries etc from Ramnagar Market for himself and the driver about Rs 1000 approx for 4 days
He pays extra baksheesh to the cook and camp guys about Rs 400/- and some tips to the Driver
All inclusive Ex Ramnagar, for only his trip and only he, single person in a Gypsy, q 3 nights/4 Days trip to Corbett
He spends max 16000 Rs approx Ex Ramnagar
And Corbett is one of the most beautiful parks of India and enjoying it all alone in a Gypsy with some of the good Drivers, he is very happy and says that its easy and far better than to join a group tour where a bit more he maybe has to pay but then share the gypsy with atleast 3 other guys. Makes sense !!
Just sharing as information for my fb friends. Yes if he can do it easy anyone can do it and enjoy !!
Many of friends enjoy good services of some of the recommended Drivers in Corbett like
Chander Mohan Mehra - +919359364878
Arif Pukaka Corbett - +919760130208
to name a few....
I just share information whatever I have.
I amnt a tour operator ..... whoever thinks to use this information should contact the Drivers directly and discuss details.

Raj Srivastava Drivers usually charges 4500 INR per day including diesel.

Tigress in Jhirna zone ,typical corbett landscape.
we were waiting and listening to the growling and mating calls. Suddenly she came out of the hide and the male tiger followed her after 10 mins.
