This 7 nights’ 8 days’ program takes you to some of the most wildlife inhabited areas in South Asia. Best of Jungle Safari Tour includes two of the best jungle safari destinations in Nepal, Chitwan National park and Bardiya National Park.

Chitwan National Park (CNP) is the oldest National park in Nepal which covers an area of 952.63 sq.km. Situated at the inner Terai lowlands, it was officially established in 1973 and was entitled as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. Until the early 50s, the national park used to be a royal hunting reserve for the Nepalese and foreign aristocrats. Due to the increment of human settlement around the area between 1950 and 1960, the poaching gradually increased causing a reduction of the number of the endangered one-horned rhino.

As CNP was gazetted as a conservation area to preserve the endangered one-horned rhino at that time being, it is now home to more than 500 of these wildlife species, being the major highlight of the park. After the declaration of being the area as a national park, it became one of the major tourist destinations in Nepal. The best Jungle Safari Tour trip starts with a drive to Chitwan from Kathmandu. The activities include Tharu Cultural dance, Tharu Village exploration, Elephant Back Safari, elephant breeding center visitation, Canoeing, and Bird watching.

Located at the lowlands of western Terai, Bardia National Park was established in 1988 covering an area of 968 sq.km including the Buffer zone.  The Bardia National park is the habitat of many rare mammals, reptilians, and bird species. The most notable are the Bengal tiger, one-horned Rhino, swamp deer, Gangetic dolphin, and many more. Similar to other national parks in Nepal you can do jeep safari, Elephant safari (nowadays in the Tharu village as private elephants are not allowed inside the park), bird watching, and canoeing/boating in the Karnali River, the longest river in Nepal.

Day 3

Full day jungle activities

Your day starts with a wakeup call which is mostly a knock at the door by the staff as most jungle lodges don’t have intercom services.

You will have breakfast before heading out for the canoe trip. The canoe is a long wooden boat made from either a silk cotton tree or Sal tree and seats as much as 15 people depending upon the length. The ride will be about 40 minutes and during the canoe ride, you can see two species of crocodile basking in the sun and many birds and if you are lucky enough a rhino drinking water from the river.

The canoe ride ends near the Elephant breeding center where you can see more than 25 elephants as well as some small and yet big newborns. The Naturalist will brief you about the daily routine, behavior, and eating habit of the elephants. After the briefing, we will go to the river to see the elephants bathing. You can take a shower on top of an elephant after paying 2-3 dollars.  Soon after the shower,  we will head back to the hotel and have lunch.

After lunch, we will participate in the elephant back safari which is usually 1.5 to 2 hours long. You are likely to enconter some wildlife animals like sambar deer, spotted deer, rhesus macaques, gray langurs, jungle cats, marbled cats, and Indian Rhino on this trip. Walk back through the forest to the hotel.
