SIR RICHARD BRANSON VISITS CAMP CORBETT!

Yesterday Camp Corbett was honoured to welcome Sir Richard Branson, who was on a short visit to North India. After enjoying lunch in the thatched dining room, Sir Richard was taken on a visit to the Bijrani section of Corbett Tiger Reserve by Sid and Choti Anand, who run our associate adventure travel company "Blaze A Trail Adventures" from their lodge at Pangot.

Sir Richard also visited Jim Corbett's home village of Choti Haldwani, situated 1km from Camp Corbett, where a village co-operative has been set up with the help of the Forest Department to promote Corbett's legacy and to improve the villagers' standard of living. The co-operative also sells  local Kumaoni produce, and runs the gift shop next to the old Corbett residence, now used as a museum devoted to his memory.
