Rajaji National Park is a 2-hour drive from Walterre. Founded in 1983, and named after C. Rajagopalachari, a prominent figure in the Freedom Struggle, Rajaji National Park is predominantly formed from dense green jungles, and this environment forms a habitat for a number of animals. The park is at the northwestern limit of distribution for both elephants and tigers in India, forming an important elephant corridor. Over 500 species of birds, including both resident and migratory species, are found here.

 

Both morning and afternoon safaris are on offer at Rajaji, with dedicated jeeps. Private vehicles are not allowed inside the park boundaries.
