Jungle Safari Nepal

Bardia National Park

Bardia National Park

Bardia National Park is smaller than Chitwan but houses the same exotic animals and jungle environment of the Terai. Bardia is more isolated than Chitwan which is why it has fewer resorts and fewer visitors. But this also adds to the excitement of exploring this jungle. All resorts border the boundary of the park and numerous jungle activities are possible. The resorts are extremely pleasant and enjoyable and offer Bardia as their front yard.

It is generally known as the best place where your chances of spotting a tiger in Nepal are the highest (even Chitwan comes a second!). Other animals include the rhinoceros, swamp deer, leopards, jungle cats, blue bulls (nilgai), sloth bears, barking deer and langurs. There are a few wild elephants here and one of the males is considered the largest in Asia!

The Geruwa river that rushes in through a break in the hill range, silt laden and full with snowmelt, is home to the famous Mahseer game fish, gharial, mugger crocodile and the freshwater Genetic dolphin. The park also has cobras, kraits and pythons.

The park boasts more than 250 species of birds, including the endangered Bengal florican, Sarus crane and many species of geese, ducks and parakeets.

The activities here include jungle safari on elephant back, jungle walks, boat rides and jeep drives. The best time to visit the park is from October through March. The months of April-June are unbearably hot while July-September is monsoon time.

 

There are a wide variety of jungle activities available in both parks. Elephant rides are the best way to explore the jungle and search for wildlife. Jeep safaris are also available for those who don't feel like riding atop an elephant. Others might enjoy a jungle walk with an experienced guide who can tell you all about the wildlife and vegetation that is unique to the Terai region. Canoeing on the Rapti or Narayani rivers is a great way to see the many different bird species of Chitwan. And there's always the rare chance that you can see the elusive freshwater Gangetic dolphins that inhabit the rivers. All of these activities are included in your jungle package.

Included in all of our jungle packages is transportation. Tourist buses, private transportation, and airline flights are available for both Chitwan and Bardia National parks. We highly recommend flying to Bardia because the bus ride from Kathmandu can take over 15 hrs on a rough road. Chitwan is 5-6 from Kathmandu on a bus. All transportation to the lodges inside the park will be provided.
