Chitwan National Park Safari is one of the premier draw cards in Nepal. This World Heritage–listed reserve consists of marshland and grassland containing sizeable animal populations. It is one of the best national parks for viewing wildlife in Asia.
You’ll have an excellent chance of spotting one-horned rhinos, deer, monkeys and some of the more than 500 species of birds. If luck favors, you may spot a leopard, wild elephant or sloth bear. It’s the once-in-a-lifetime chance to spot a majestic royal Bengal tiger.
You’ll also have the chance to experience domesticated elephants, although how that interaction takes place is now undergoing a paradigm shift driven by animal rights concerns.
Established in 1973, Chitwan National Park Safari is one of the very best parks in Nepal. The diverse flora and fauna are easily seen year-round, with each season offering its special delight. During the March-June season, a mysterious sun-lit fog covers the land. The short grass time of Feb-May offers the best game-viewing season, and the autumn months are the best time to see gorgeous Himalayan views.
Bring your camera! On our Chitwan Chitwan National Park Safari Wildlife Discovery, you may see a one-horned rhino, royal Bengal tiger, wild elephant, deer, wild boar, sloth bear, leopard, bison, or jackal. Many reptiles including the gharial crocodile live there, as do many species of the birds including hornbill, lesser florican, paradise flycatcher, and others. A photographer’s haven, Chitwan is easily accessible, linked by river, highway, and air transport, with regular flights, river rafting, and tourist bus service from Kathmandu and Pokhara.
