Dhela Safari Zone, which covers 1173 hectares, was added to the Corbett Tiger Reserve tourist map in 2014 and is home to Sal, Rohini, Haldu, Bahera, and Kusum flora. Tigers, leopards, Asiatic elephants, sloth bears, and king cobras are also present. The region is especially rich in bird diversity.
It was created from Corbett’s southern buffer forests. A forest in Dhela has the honor of having seen seven tigers once in Corbett’s seventy-five-year history. This forest is home to a variety of wildlife, including sambar deer in mixed forest plantations and moist deciduous shelters that attract tigers because they can easily locate food. It is also true that the Sal Forest region is a popular tiger hunting location. The watch tower constructed within the Dhela zone allows tourists to see wild animals from a safe distance.
