HI,

Just an Update. Brother is back from Tadoba. Subhash Guide has got New AC Innova and he is giving the lowest deals from Nagpur Pick up and Drop. You can compare it with others. they can pick you up from Nagpur Santra market and take you to Moharli gate from Buffer aria which is a Short Cut.

Subhash's Number is 080552 57451

regards

Nitin

I have booked a gypsy for 3 people. 1 more person wants to join us. There is no option on the website add a person's name in the booking list once the booking is done. Can it be adjusted at the gate? Please reply asap because we have to arrange for that person's flight ticket accordingly. I didn't get proper info on this on their helpline number.

No, the add-on facility is not available now. So that person can not be accommodated in your gypsy.

Well the new rule says - Any cancellation/leftover quota, at any gate, at the time of closure of Normal Online Booking is added to Tatkal Online Quota, for that particular gate

So your cancelled ticked will be added to Tatkal Quota & you'll not be able to book the permit again for those dates if the booking status for those dates is already FULL.

However you may try to book the permit in Tatkal quota.

I would suggest you to book buffer permits & try to book a core safari in Tatkal quota.

Got it.. thanks so much!
although i still find it odd that we pay for entire vehicle, the vacant seats in the vehicle are not available for anybody else, so they are wasted already...and then we ourselves cannot accommodate anyone in that vacant seat!

SO i will have to book another vehicle in tatkal just for one person! caus' if i add 4 people's name in tatkal booking and then cancel my earlier booking; even then i will get only 25% of earlier reservation charges back. thats still as good as booking 2 vehicles!

I think it means the permit to visit the buffer zone of the national park.

No, that's not. Because for an extra gypsy you have to pay 2300 + 300 = 2600 Rs. extra. Anyways as add-on is not available you have to incur extra costs if permit is not booked for all wiling persons on the date of booking.

As aarosh said, it's the permit for doing safaris in buffer areas which also offer very good sightings.

You booked permit / hotel for which gate ?

The trip operators follow a trick. They always book a gypsy with six names , names of persons whose originals IDs can be accessed by them. So now they are armed with six IDs of their kins and friends. At the gate they check the IDs with those mentioned in the permit, no mechanism is there to check whether some other persons are riding in the gypsy.Such a mechanism will call for a much bigger team and will take so much time that the safari would be over at the gate only. Hence they sneak through this loophole.
