Bardia National Park

Wildlife enthusiasts have a ton of opportunities at Bardiya National Park. The environment at Bardiya is completely intact and undisturbed, as it is a national park with very little human interference. The deep forests of Bardiya are home to several animal species like the Bengal Tiger, the biggest member of the cat family, the Asiatic Elephant, and the Indian Leopard.

The tour and safari through Bardiya National Park in Nepal are ideal excursions. The brief Royal Bardiya jungle adventure tour lasts only four days, yet it is jam-packed with incredible animal adventures in the steamy woods of Nepal's Bardia national park. While here, we participate in the native culture of the original residents near the forest and keep ourselves occupied with activities like nature walks, boat safaris, bird watching, and elephant-back safaris. Numerous natural species, including endangered and rare plants and animals, may be found in Bardiya National Park. 

Bardiya National Park and Chitwan National Park are relatively comparable in the way they offer quite similar experiences. Bardiya National Park is more isolated and has higher possibilities of seeing uncommon animals than Chitwan National Park. The area is incredibly serene, and the forest strolls and safari provides an authentic vibe. Compared to Chitwan National Park, it has a smaller number of lodges and hotels, but there are still sufficient lodges to accommodate you. The largest tiger protection area Bardiya also has a small elephant birthing sanctuary and a crocodile breeding facility.

You may also view some of the rarest and most stunning birds soaring on the shores of the Karnali River in the morning if you float down the river. The boating can also lead you to locations where elephants, tigers, and numerous antelopes drink the water in the morning or even at dusk. You may also stroll to barren meadows to see the sunset over the Karnali River.

Day to Day Details

Expand AllCollapse All

After an early breakfast, we will go to Tribhuvan International Airport's domestic terminal for a one-hour journey to Nepalgunj, located in the southwest part of the country. As the airplane takes off, we'll see magnificent mountains behind us and rolling green hills below us. But as we get closer to our destination, we'll be amazed to find an entirely different landscape: flat, open, plain green fields. We will travel to Bardiya National Park, which is two hours from Nepalgunj once we get there. We will have lunch and receive a briefing on our itinerary after checking in at our accommodation. Then, after learning about their way of life and culture, we'll take a tour through the lovely Tharu hamlet and stop by the crocodile breeding facility. After doing all of these things, we do not doubt that your first day of travel on the Bardia National Park Tour will not be enjoyable.

After eating breakfast, the guide will accompany us into the dense jungle where we will search for one-horned rhinoceroses and Royal Bengal tigers. Gharials, Marsh muggers, crocodiles, monkeys, pythons, wild elephants, black bucks, wild boars, hog deer, swamp deer, spotted deer, and numerous other species of animals may be found at Bardiya National Park. By keeping an eye out for their scratches on trees, scats (animal droppings), and foot tracks, we may locate these wild creatures. There are towers inside the bush where we may wait calmly and patiently for wild creatures to pass us. We'll enjoy our picnic lunch in the forest before exploring more of it in search of wildlife. We will return to the hotel in the evening for dinner and participate in a vibrant Tharu ethnic dance performance. Our visit to the Bardiya National Park will be successful on day two.

Today, we'll go 30 kilometers across the national park to the Karnali River. This day is designated specifically for viewing stunning, colorful birds of various types that visit waterholes to drink or that reside in the trees near water. To see even more different kinds of birds, we'll ride a boat and have a canoe excursion. In the river, there will also be muggers and gharials. If we're lucky, we could see creatures like tigers, rhinos that come to the river to drink, or even dolphins swimming in it.

Our adventure has come to an end today. We're going on an elephant safari today since it will be a different feeling from strolling through the thick jungle. From a safer vantage point, close enough to observe the animals nearer, we appreciate nature. We won't frighten or disturb the wild creatures by being on an elephant. We'll have lunch and then make our way towards the Nepalgunj airport following the safari. We'll take a flight back to Kathmandu from there.
