Tourists are back at India’s Corbett National Park with wildlife enthusiasts booking flights tickets to the country in hordes. The reserve opened its doors after a court directive that uplifted the ban on tiger tourism in core areas.

Reports of tourists flocking to India’s much famed Jim Corbett National Park have been trickling in, following the verdict where the Supreme Court of the country lifted the ban on tiger tourism.

Officials assert there has been a massive advance booking for the tour, with wildlife enthusiasts taking air tickets on flights bound to India to unravel the jungle gems.

“Tourists are enquiring about the national park’s reopening and booking in large numbers. We are processing the requests and there is no shortage of arrangements,” said a senior official at the Corbett Tiger Reserve.

Every year, a huge number of foreigners buy tickets on flights bound to India to explore the highly diversified fauna of the land in their natural habitat. Those making bookings for flights tickets can hope to catch a glimpse of animals like tigers, elephants and deer, and a range of exotic birds.

Earlier, India’s Supreme Court imposed a temporary ban on tourism in core areas of the national parks, in a bid to protect the endangered big cats. However, few days back, the court, with few guidelines, uplifted the ban, bringing much relief to state-run reserves and also tourists buying flights tickets to the country.

“The guidelines stated by the Supreme Court for the reopening are being installed and followed. The guidelines are to bring discipline and regulation in tiger tourism, formation of tourism zone, special courses for drivers of tourist vehicles, allowing green gypsies into the forest,” said the official.

Undoubtedly, wildlife remains a highly magnetic lure of leisure vacationers seeking cheap flights tickets to the country.
