Trip Overview

Chitwan Jungle Safari means traveling inside the national park. Royal Chitwan National Park, and Royal Bardia National Park along with 11 other national parks in Nepal are rich in different kinds of flora and wildlife, birds, such as the rare great one-horned rhinoceros, several species of deer, bear, leopard, dolphin, crocodile, birds, tiger, etc., living in this park in their natural habitat. The parks are very popular for dugout canoeing, nature walk, bird watching, jungle excursion, village visits of local tribes called Tharu, etc.

Our program during your stay at National Parks has been designed in such a way as to make your stay enjoyable but exciting at the same time. However, viewing wildlife at its best requires early morning and late afternoon excursions which is a matter beyond our control, and guests are advised to comply with the schedule for their own advantage. We also arrange longer trips who wish to be there for 3 days/4 and nights or more. One who visits Nepal should once do a Chitwan Jungle Safari.
