The renowned Bijrani Tourist Zone is part of the magnificent Corbett Tiger Reserve. This area is home to a wide range of floral and animal species in great quantity. Bijrani and Dhikala zone are fierce rivals in terms of visitor preferences. The region is well renowned for being a very peaceful and calm place with a gorgeous atmosphere. Everyone who travels recognizes and enjoys the beauty of this place. This area of the park is one of the most tiger-rich ones. Bijrani’s terrain is diverse, with luscious Sal trees dotted throughout meadows. Aamdanda Gate is the entrance to this area.

The Bijrani zone, one of the six safari zones, is regarded as the second-best zone after the Dhikala zone for tiger sightings. This area’s scenic scenery, which includes vast grass fields called Chaurs, lush Sal woodland, numerous waterholes, and river streams, is just as alluring as the Dhikala zone’s. The likelihood of viewing a tiger in this area is essentially the same as that in the Dhikala zone, and safari travelers frequently report seeing tigers there. In addition to big cats like Bengal tigers and leopards, this area is also home to a variety of other creatures, including wild elephants, black bears, and various deer and antelope species, including chital, sambar, and hog deer. Around 600 species of resident and migratory birds can be found here, making it an ideal location for birdwatching.


There are two Forest Rest Houses in the Bijrani Zone: Bijrani and Malani. Six rooms (four with double beds and two with single beds) plus a dormitory with four beds make up the rest home in Bijrani. There is a café and canteen inside the compound. There are options for elephant rides into the bush from here. Wild animals and birds frequent the area, unaffected by human activities. In this area of the park, there is a good chance of seeing a tiger, sloth bear, or herd of elephants. The Malani rest home features two rooms with double beds and is well-liked by travelers looking for a quiet setting and bird watchers. Bijrani is really beautiful from a scenic standpoint. It has expansive grasslands, dense forests, enormous waterways, and an amazing variety of flora and fauna.

Night Stay

Approximately 12 kilometers to the northwest of Bijrani, the Malani Forest Rest House was constructed in the 1930s and is situated on the edge of the Corbett National Park’s core zone. Visitors can enjoy the sight of deer grazing in the grassland, a Tusker peeling tree bark, or an odd encounter with a bear or leopard by taking the old forest track from Bijrani via the Machaan chaur to Mailani. The Malani sot (stream) inspired the name of this little FRH, which offers some of the most scenic surroundings and a tranquil ambiance. One of the best places for a tranquil stay and bird watching is here.

How and When to Visit

Even though the Bijrani zone’s day safari is accessible to wildlife fans from 15 October to 30 June each year, travelers can only spend the night in the forest house there from 15 November to 14 June. Due to the wet season, this location is inaccessible to all visitors outside of the times specified. You need a government permit to enter the restricted area, and you must reserve a room at the forest lodge in order to travel there. To avoid any inconveniences while visiting Corbett National Park, it is generally a good idea to reserve safari and woodland rooms in advance. Since staying in these forest houses is quite popular among wildlife enthusiasts, it is impossible to find a spare room on-site without making a reservation.
