This is Lalit Mohan from Devbhumi Tourism, Corbett is my hometown and I have been serving this destination since 2010. You can treat me as a destination expert for Jim Corbett National Park because I am aware of every corner of Ramnagar city or Corbett and I know all the secrets of Corbett jeep safaris.

Before proceeding further I would like to ask you one question. Are you happy with your daily routine job or business? Though most people don’t like their daily routine job or business if they don’t like what they are doing and besides this, some people love what they do or they do what they love and learn new things every day. Likewise, the people going deeper and deeper into their passion and work makes them perfect and shiny.

So, the point is the same psychology applies to the drivers and guides of Corbett because some drivers and guides love nature and their work to go inside the jungle and explore it deeply every time. But most of these are only doing their daily routine job/duty.

No matter how many times you have visited Jim Corbett, you will be always excited before a wildlife jeep safari to Corbett. If you are coming the first time you may be afraid of any mishappening or danger because Corbett is a dangerous place, especially in core areas but don’t worry you are not going to explore core areas. Similarly, for drivers and guides, it is not very exciting because they do Corbett jeep safari twice a day.

It is their daily job and they will not entertain you much if you don’t behave well with them. They can spoil your whole safari if they want, but you will not be aware of this. I have many acquaintances working as a driver and guide in Corbett and trust me I have seen some of them finishing their safaris within 2 hours.
