Introduction to Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour
On Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour you can do many activities like jungle safari, elephant ride, nature walk, canoe ride, jeep drive, bird watching, village tour, etc. Chitwan National Park is located in the Southern Terai region of central Nepal. Covering an area of 932 sq km, the park is the home of various species of animals. It is a real wildlife sanctuary that conserves rare species of birds and animals. The park offers a wide variety of not only mammals and birds but also reptiles and water animals.
The word “Chitwan” is a combination of two Nepali words, Chit and Wan. Chit means heart and Wan means forest, which means that it symbolizes the heart of the forest. This park pays special attention to the conservation of endangered species of animals like the one-horned rhino, Bengal tiger, etc.
The park was established in 1973 and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. Nepal has 12 national parks, 1 wildlife reserve, and 1 hunting reserve, of which Chitwan National Park is the best and most popular for jungle safaris. For wildlife and green forest lovers, the Chitwan jungle safari tour is the best trip. Take a trip on canoe rides along Rapti River on the western side of the park where you will have a great experience viewing Gharial. You can also enjoy the sunset view from the banks of the Rapti River.
Explore Jungle and Wildlife
Walking in nature is another way to explore the jungle. A well-trained and experienced guide will take you to the main places to see the wildlife and explain in detail about the wildlife and the jungle. More than 450 species of birds are found in this forest and you can also enjoy watching the birds while walking.
While on a jungle safari you can encounter animals such as one-horned rhino, Bengal tiger, elephant, monkey, deer, wild boar, wild cat, sloth bear, python, crocodile, and many more. It can also be a good opportunity for bird watchers as there are more than 500 species of birds.
Visiting nearby Tharu villages and exploring their unique culture, traditions, and way of life can be another different experience. An authentic Tharu cultural dance, Nepali food, and hospitality will add even more excitement. Tharu stick dance is a traditional cultural program performed by the indigenous Tharu people of the region.
You can combine jungle safaris with other tours and trekking programs or just do jungle safaris. You can also include rafting on the way to Chitwan which makes your adventure trip even more exciting.
It takes 20 minutes by flight from Kathmandu and 5 hours by road to reach the park.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
