Royal Chitwan National Park has 6 premier jungle
resorts scattered inside its boundaries. These secluded
resorts are the perfect place to experience the true safari

the best lodges outside and it is also include jungle activities
Royal 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.
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.
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.
Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve
Established in 1976, Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is 175 square kilometers of wildlife refuge and wetlands habitat. It is located in Eastern Nepal and can be accessed from the Mehendra Highway. The reserve is also home to the water buffalo (called arna), deer, nilgai, mugger crocodile, Ganges River Dolphin (also called the Gangetic Dolphin), and over 280 species of birds.
In additional to wildlife, the Reserve also protects a substantial part of the Sapta Koshi, (a tributary of the Ganges River) flood plain. In 1987, it was declared a Ramsar site.
Royal Suklaphant Wildlife Reserve
Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve
The Royal Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve (28°49’-28°57’;
80°07’-80°15’E) lies in the extreme
south west of the Terai and covers an area of. 305 sq km
(including extension area) and ranges in altitude from 90-270
m. The vegetation cover within the reserve has been estimated
as approximately two-third forest and one-third grassland
(Balson, 1976). Of these, the Suklaphanta grassland is probably
the largest patch of grassland of Nepal, occupying an area
of 54 sq km. Twenty-six species of mammal have been recorded
(Schaaf, 1978a, Bell, 1987), including a population of 1,710-2,250
swamp deer. The reserve also holds Nepal’s largest
breeding population of Bengal floricans and hispid hare.
great majority of the land, particularly in the hills,
remains unvisited and therefore undisturbed. This
is ideal for wildlife, and also preserves an element
of mystery for humans; because large areas are still
unexplored, our knowledge of what birds and animals
the park contains is by no means finalized, and there
is always the possibility of making new discoveries.
