Why go for a Jim Corbett Canter Safari:

All three types of safaris are great in their own ways, but there are certain aspects where one beats the other. Here are 6 reasons why you may prefer Canter Safari over Elephant Safari and Jeep Safari, especially the amazing Dhikala Canter Safari.

  1. Wildlife sightings and proximity: Canter Safari is more protected than the elephant and the jeep safari because it is covered. This gives you the chance to observe the wildest of animals from a closer distance.
  2. Comfort and safety: Unlike the elephant and the jeeps, a canter is covered from all 6 sides, making it more protected and safe.
  3. Capacity and group size: If you are an Indian and want to visit with your joint family then rather than hiring 2 jeeps or 2-3 elephants, it is best to book one canter, as it can easily accommodate 16 people.
  4. Availability and booking process: Since canters carry a good number of people they are often booked more and thus their chances of availability is more and the booking process is also easier.
  5. Weather conditions: If you are visiting in the monsoon season and don’t want to get soaked in the rainwater, then taking the Dhikala Canter Safari is the best option for you. Even in the cold winters of Uttarakhand, canter will protect you way better than a jeep or an elephant.
  6. Photography and videography opportunities: Being closer to the wildlife in a safe vehicle you get better photos and videos. The Dhikala Canter Safari will give you the best shot of the wildlife.
