Bardiya National park in Nepalgunj is the largest national park in Nepal‘s Terai Region with an area of 968 km. sq. The remoteness has resulted in an untouched and unique wilderness of the park. The sub-tropical climate with huge trees is best explored with the help of a Jungle Safari.
The park is famous as a tranquil heaven with many rare and endangered species of plants and wildlife. There are reportedly 22 Royal Bengal tigers and 100 one-horned rhinoceros. Grey Langur, Rhesus Macaques, hyenas, sloth bear, and deer are also frequently spotted here. The bird watching trips are perfect with around 300 species of colorful birds. Crocodiles and dolphins can be spotted in the canoe rides in the Geruwa River.
The natural getaway is wonderful as we encounter diverse wildlife, flora and migratory birds. Other activities include ox cart rides, jeep rides, nature walks, among others. The Jungle safari is the best way to explore the untouched park as well as other parts of the region.
We explore the lush forest on elephant back to see the endangered animals along with the rich flora. The traditional dances of the Tharu villages add a cultural element to the tour. (Royal) Bardiya National park Safari tour is an extraordinary experience with cherished lifelong memories.
