Zone suggestion for Leopard

After quite a few safari in Corbett and Ranthambhore, we are still looking to get the first glimpse of the leopard.

Does anyone have any suggestion for zones in Corbett for leopard sightings. We plan to visit sometime this winter.
Keep Travelling and Exploring

There is no zone better or worse for a leopard sighting. At Corbett, try a zone which has fewer tigers, such as Jhirna. We've seen their pug-marks there often, but never spotted any. In fact, you don't need to travel to Corbett to see one. You'll even find them in many wooded rural areas on the outskirts of Delhi. Sighting one, on the other hand, is very difficult. They are very shy.

The only place I have come close to seeing a Leopard at Corbett was at Malani as there was a female in the area. They are however very shy and good at avoiding people.

After seeing the awesome pictures of the leopards from the travel sites, i wonder when i will get the first view. Any comments on Rajaji or do you have any nice links for picture blog from Rajaji/Corbett with leopard for inspiration.

The population of leopards in semi-urban spaces and forests of the Western Ghats, Siwaliks, Vindhyas and Aravallis is actually growing due to the decline in numbers of rival predators (tigers), and they are adapting to life close to human habitation. However, snow leopards and populations in Amur and Arabia are in severe decline.

The only time I've seen one (fleetingly) is above Munnar, Kerala, at twilight, on a golf course which also had extremely shy grazing herds of Gaur (Indian bison).

There aren't too many pictures of leopards hosted on IndiaMike.

Rajaji is a very densely wooded forest, which is why elephants love it. Without camera traps, I doubt that you'll get great viewings. But then, it's down to time and place, and lots of luck.

I know there are active leopards in Rajaji. My parents live in a colony that borders on it - and they report frequent sightings in the colony. But - not certain how easy it is to plan on seeing one.

Leopard sightings are good at Bera (Rajasthan), Kabini - Nagarhole National Park (Karnataka) and Satpura National Park (Madhya Pradesh)

Nagarhole best bet for leopards. Its raining leopards out there. Almost guaranteed. Tiger sightings also decent and chances of black panther too....Do stay at Jungle Lodges as (unfortunately)it's the only resort where you are guaranteed a jeep safari. All other lodges/resorts are given a step motherly treatment as you get a canter ride only.

Sorry I don't. Jhirna hosts a Forest Rest house , but that surely can't accommodate 26 people. You may stay at Ramnagar and visit Jhirna zone from there. Getting permit for 26 people could be an issue. You also need to hire at least 5 gypsies for your group.
