Day 01: Arrival at Bardia National Park (300m/1000ft)
A representative of Sisne Rover will pick us up from Nepalgunj airport and transfer to Bardia National Park. The Bardia National Park is 90kilometer away from Nepalgunj and takes about 2 hours drive. After checking in to our resort, we take a tour of an authentic Tharu village. The Tharu people are believed to be the original inhabitants of the local jungle area. We will also visit the Bardia National Park visitor center and crocodile farm. Overnight in Bardia National Park.
Day 02: Bardia National Park: jungle safari, cultural exposure
After breakfast we embark deep into the woods on foot. We will be accompanied by a nature guide and porter. The steamy jungles of Bardia is home to a number of wild animals including Asian elephant, one horn rhinoceros, spotted deer, hog deer, barking deer, samber, swamp deer, black buck, wild boar, royal Bengal tiger, leopard, golden jackal, striped hyena and others. There are also towers (Machan) at different places within the jungle where we can wait for unsuspecting wild-lives to pass us by. Our experienced nature guide will help us track the wildlife. After the jungle tour we return back to our resort and enjoy dinner and take part in the traditional Tharu dance.
Day 03: Bardia National Park: float safari, bird-watching, cultural dance program
After breakfast, we drive for an hour to Chisapani, a village located over the Karnali River. We embark on our wildlife discovery tour on a Safari float which is a pleasant way to experience the rivers and wildlife of western Nepal. We will be accompanied by a trained guide, well suited for maneuvering the river which does not have any rapids. Throughout the journey we get to admire the beautiful sub-tropical landscape along with the plentiful wildlife. Catching glimpses of wild animals quenching their thirst in the vast Karnali River will be an amazing experience! If you must know we would not be the only ones floating in the Karnali River as the river is home to endangered Gharial crocodile, marsh mugger and gangetic dolphins. Furthermore, this trip is also good for bird-watching as there are quite a number of resident and migratory birds in the Bardia National Park. We end the day with another Tharu cultural dance program. Overnight in Bardia National Park.
Day 04: Elephant-back Safari, final departure
After breakfast we set forth on an interesting elephant-back safari. Apart from the fun, another benefit of elephant-back safari is that there is a better chance of seeing wild animals, since the wild animals are less scared when you’re on the top of their mammoth friend. Moreover, riding the elephant also saves us from any potential attacks by the wild animals. The elephants usually head northwest and we may see deer, langoor monkeys, rhinos and boars. After the safari, we are transferred to Nepalgunj airport.
