There are two major destinations which are illustrated below:
ROYAL BARDIA NATIONAL PARK
Royal Bardia National Park is the largest and most undisturbed wilderness area in the Terai. It is thickly forested by Sal trees and is carpeted with grass, savanna and reverie forest. It is a regenerated habitat for endangered species like the rhinoceros, Wild Elephant, Tiger, Swamp Deer, Black Buck, Gharial Crocodile and Genetic Dolphin. Endangered birds include Bengal Florican, Lesser Florican, Silver-Eared Mesia and Sarus Crane.
Along with dozens of more common animals and hundreds of birds, Royal Bardia National Park is home to 19 of the 39 species legally protected in Nepal. With 8 types of ecosystems, Bardia holds the key to the survival of many species. In fact, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has identified Bardia as playing a major role in the survival of the world tiger population. Endangered species here are:
- Royal Bengal Tigers
- River Dolphins
- Great Pied Hornbills
- Wild Elephants
- Black Buck Antelopes
- Bengal Florican's
- Gharial Crocodiles
Originally a hunting reserve, Bardia became a wildlife conservation area in 1976 and was upgraded to National Park status as recently as 1988. Providing a home for a wide range of mammals, birds and reptiles is not the only achievement of Royal Bardia National Park, it also provides the ideal environment for the study of wildlife. The WWF and the King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation are both active in the Park monitoring wildlife movement and breeding habits as well as pursuing a policy of forestry care and educating local people on the meaning of, and need for, protected areas.
ROYAL CHITWAN NATIONAL PARK
Royal Chitwan National Park is listed as a World Heritage Site and is the most popular safari destination in Nepal. It covers a unique ecosystem, containing hills, ox-bow lakes and flood plains. Dominated by Sal forests, the park has 50 species of grasses. The 43 species of animals include the Endangered One-Horned Rhino, Royal Bengal Tiger, Garial Crocodile, Gaur, Wild Elephant, Four-Horned Antilope, Striped Hyena, Gangetic Dolphin, Monitor Lizard, and Pythons
You will be going into deep jungle on elephant back or four-wheel drive to view wild animals in their natural habitat.
No matter where you go for safari in Nepal, one thing is for sure: You will come back wiser. There are just too many species, too much wilderness and cultural diversity that will be relished by people of any age or generation.
