Twin/ triple sharing accommodation at government guest house Dhikala or any other dwellings in the Dhikala zone. This is a government property and cannot be compared to a resort. Rooms though old are clean. Room service may not be upto the mark, but will be taken care of in the best possible way. Power failures can happen at Dhikala and usually takes 2-3 days to get rectified. Generator facility will be available for a limited period during such occasions.
There had been instances at Corbett when we have not been given allotted number of rooms during our visit (due to visit of VVIP’s and government officials). In that unlikely incident 3-4 people may have to share a room. That is the risk we have to take in order to stay inside the core area of tiger reserve. This is unlikely to happen this year as number of rooms have been increased compared to last year
