Canter Safari Online Booking In Corbett
A canter is an open bus which can seat 16 tourists at a time apart from a guide. You can book it online to enjoy tiger sighting along with a large group of family and friends. It is important to note that a canter safari is operational only in the Dhikala zone of Jim Corbett National Park. Canter safari is available to tourists residing outside the zone. Unlike a jeep safari which is for 3 hours, a canter safari is of approximately 5.30 hours duration.
Online Canter Safari Booking Procedure
Only two canter safaris are done in a day with a maximum of 2 canters allowed at a time. The morning safari takes place from 6:00 am - 11.30 am and the afternoon safari takes place from 12-5.30 pm. Since only a limited number of seats are available, prior booking for canter safari is done.
