A Luxury Villa in Jim Corbett National Park
Life in Dhela village moves at a leisurely pace. There is no hurry or worry on people’s faces. We presume that most of our guests will be here to take a break from the fast-paced life in the cities. So, if you wish, do nothing. Just relax, soothe your tired eyes with the beautiful views, watch the sunrise and sunset from the rooftop deck, gaze at the stars from the balconies, swim to your heart’s content, read books, or indulge in a variety of indoor games available in the family lounge.
For guests who want to spend time outdoors, go cycling on the almost empty roads, take peaceful nature walks around the village, do some bird watching, or have a small picnic by the riverside. Breathe in the fresh air and relish your time away from the dust, grime and pollution in the cities.
You can also choose to go for morning or evening safaris into the Jim Corbett National Park, India’s oldest and most prestigious national parks. Nature and wildlife viewing in the Park is done in an open four-wheeler jeep. The Park has been divided into various safari zones, and the entry gate for two zones – Jhirna and Dhela, are less than 5 minutes away from the villa. We advise you to do your safari bookings in advance to avoid disappointment due to non-availability of vehicles.

About Dhela Safari Zone
The Dhela Safari Zone of Jim Corbett National Park sprawls over 1173 hectares and is the sixth ecotourism zone of the Corbett Tiger reserve. It was crafted out of the southern buffer forests part of the Corbett and was opened for tourists in December 2014.
Dhela zone has the distinction of seeing seven tigers together for the first time in Corbett’s seventy-five-year history. In 2019-20, it had the second highest tiger spotting status during jungle safaris, as a result of which the demand for Jeep safaris in Dhela always remains high. Many times tigers have been spotted just at the entry gate of the zone which signifies that Dhela has high density of tigers. It also has a Watch Tower from where tourists can see wild animals from far away.
Dhela Ecotourism zone remains open for tourists throughout the year
About Jhirna Safari Zone
Located at the Southern periphery of the Corbett National Park, Jhirna is famous for easy wildlife spotting. The zone was once a village, which was later relocated and the land was redeveloped into a dense forest. Over a safari to the Jhirna Park, tourists can see nilgai, cheetal, sambhar in their natural habitat. The zone also has a good population of sloth bear and wild elephants.
The topography of the Jhirna zone is primarily a dry deciduous type and consists of a large Grassland (Chaur) known as the Laldhang Chaur, where herbivore animals such as deer, chitals, nilgai and elephants can be found grazing. Numerous water streams in this zone nourish the wildlife of this zone and add to the natural ambience. The zone is also considered an excellent spot for bird watching.
The entrance of the Jhirna safari zone is through the Dhela Gate.
