In some national parks you need to book full gypsy and in some you can also book single seat. In addition, not all the national parks in India provide canter safaris but jeep safari is available everywhere.

Canter is big 14 and 16 seater vehicle which allows maximum 16 tourists at once for national park safari. It is normally covered from top (not covered in some national parks as well) and it has more height than the gypsy which allows you to look far more away compared to gypsy.
