Dhikala Canter Safari/Open Bus Safari

Dhikala Canter Safari is a popular wildlife safari that takes place in the Dhikala zone of the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand, India. The Dhikala zone is one of the most well-known and picturesque areas of the park, and it's home to a diverse array of wildlife, including tigers, elephants, deer, and more.

The canter safari is a shared safari experience where visitors sit in an open-air canter that accommodates up to 16 people. The canter is a large, open-sided vehicle that provides an excellent view of the surrounding wilderness. The canter safari is a great way to explore the park and spot wildlife, especially for those who do not want to hike or walk around.

The Dhikala canter safari typically lasts for around four hours, and it takes visitors through the lush forests, grasslands, and riverbeds of the Dhikala zone. The best time to visit the park and go on a canter safari is between November and June, when the weather is mild and the park is open to visitors.

It's important to note that the Dhikala canter safari is subject to availability and needs to be booked in advance. Visitors should also follow the park's rules and regulations and respect the wildlife and natural environment during their visit.
