We offer an authentic jungle experience at Camp Forktail Creek. Situated near the village of Bhakrakot, the camp is surrounded by mixed deciduous forests, in which wildlife and bird-life are abundant. Hikes in these forests prove very rewarding for bird-watchers, especially when coupled with the pleasure of sighting animals whilst on foot.
Excursions available include elephant rides, jeep safari, angling for the mighty Mahseer on the Ramganga River, overnight or multi-day trips to Dhikala forest rest house within the National Park, and multi-day elephant safaris.
