Jungle wildlife safari takes you to a relaxing and quiet natural place away from the polluted environment and the noise of big cities. Nepal has 12 national parks, 1 wildlife reserve, and 1 hunting reserve, of which Chitwan National Park, Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, and Bardiya National Park are for jungle safaris. These three famous parks are the southern lowland of Nepal.
Chitwan National Park
Chitwan National Park is located in the flat lowland region of southern Nepal and covers an area of 932 sq km. Established in 1973; it is the first national park in Nepal and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1984. This is the most famous national park in Nepal for jungle safaris.
The main attraction of this park is a one-horned rhino and Bengal tiger. All the jungle activities are a little far away and there is a lot of chance to find wildlife. The secluded resorts offer individual cottages with private baths or luxury tent camps as per your choice.
Bardia National Park
Bardia National Park is located in the far western Terai of Nepal. Covering an area of 968 sq km, the park is the largest and most undisturbed national park in the Terai. Although Bardia National Park is smaller than Chitwan National Park, it has the same animal and jungle environment. Being isolated and remote, it has fewer resorts and fewer visitors than Chitwan.
Elephant rides are a great way to explore the jungle and wildlife, although jeep safaris are also available. Tourist buses, private transport, and airline flights are available to reach the park, but we recommend the flight as the bus ride from Kathmandu can take more than 15 hours on rough roads.
Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve
Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is located on the banks of the Koshi River in eastern Nepal. Established in 1976, this wildlife reserve covers an area of 175 square kilometers. The reserve is home to endangered wild water buffalo (Arna in Nepali), nilgai, deer, crocodile, Ganga river dolphin, and more than 485 species of birds.
