Maintaining a perfect mix of adventure, nature, and luxury was the key to Madan’s 3 nights/4 days family vacation in Jim Corbett. What made their exploits truly incredible was the fact that they went for a jungle safari, enjoyed lake-side views, explored caves, waterfalls, and visited numerous temples.
I’ve always felt that to plan a perfect family vacation is very challenging. Since my children are fond of animals, I thought a family vacation in Jim Corbett would be the best possible vacation for them and all of us. Also, since Nainital was on our bucket list for quite a while, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to hit two birds with one stone.

After searching for Jim Corbett family tour packages on the internet, I landed on the TravelTriangle website. Their prices were decent, the itinerary was flexible, and the reviews of the people who had been to Jim Corbett were great.
Day 1: Started off at mesmerizing Bhimtal Lake
We started our trip with a cab ride from Delhi at 7 am and reached Bhimtal at 2 pm. Upon arrival, we checked into the Hotel Royal Rosette in Bhimtal. Next up, we wandered out for a walk and went to see the Bhimtal Lake. Over there, my children really wanted to go for horse riding- to which I obliged as we went for a ride around Bhimtal Lake.
We didn’t do much in the evening as we were tired from our morning journey. We returned to our hotel where we spent the evening relaxing. We enjoyed our stay in Bhimtal as the food was delicious, rooms were comfortable, and our accommodation was at a walking distance from the lake.
Day 2: Sights and sounds of Nainital
The next day of our family vacation in Jim Corbett began with a delicious breakfast followed by local sightseeing in Nainital. Overall it was an adventurous afternoon as we visited places like Naini Devi Temple, Eco Garden Caves, and Corbett falls. We ended our sightseeing at Mall Road where we did some shopping. It was indeed a very handy place to shop for winter clothes and souvenirs.
We ended our evening with dinner at Mall Road and then eventually traveled back to Bhimtal for our overnight stay.
Day 3&4: Luxury and adventure in abundance at Jim Corbett
The next morning, we checked out from Bhimtal and transferred to Jim Corbett. Over there, we checked into the Gajraj Trails Resort. Our accommodation in Jim Corbett was a luxurious accommodation located on the outskirts of Jim Corbett National Park.
We spent our afternoon chilling out in the resort, spending some time in the pool, and playing some games with the premises of our accommodation. Later that night, we had dinner and slept early in preparation for our next day’s safari.
The next morning, we woke up early and got ready for our jungle safari by 6 am. We were accompanied by a driver and a guide who kept us engrossed in their tales of working in Jim Corbett as a forest ranger. Unfortunately, we couldn’t spot a tiger on our jungle safari but the overall experience amongst the flora and fauna was great.
Afterwards, we returned to the resort to have breakfast and check out for our return journey to New Delhi.
I was pleasantly surprised how smoothly our family vacation in Jim Corbett went by. Generally, no trip is complete without at least one hitch in the plans. But thanks to TravelTriangle, we followed the itinerary to the T and enjoyed some much-valued family time. I guess at the end of the day, what’s more important was the fact that all of us got together, enjoyed our very own interests and made some wonderful memories together.

- Albeit sans the tiger spotting, the jungle safari was an experience we enjoyed the most.
- As we had some free time for sightseeing, TravelTriangle could have recommended some places on their own because they have experience in handling this destination.
- Tips for people on a family vacation in Jim Corbett:
- Book a good resort where you have a lot of activities within the resort like swimming pool, spa, gym etc.
- When staying overnight at places like Bhimtal and Nainital, make sure the hotel you book is just a short walk from the lake and the Mall Road. It will give you more time to enjoy as you don’t have to worry about transportation.
