Bardia National Park

Bardia National Park is the largest and most undisturbed expanse of wilderness in southern Nepal. It's the place to come for the most authentic safari experience in Nepal.

Most of the park is covered with sal forest with smaller areas of grassland, savannah and riverine forest typical of the Terai. Originally a hunting reserve, more than 30 different mammals and over 200 species of birds have been recorded here.

Tiger often remain elusive but wild elephant and one-horned rhinoceros are more often seen. The Karnali River is home to the endangered gharial crocodile and marsh mugger as well as Gangetic dolphin and the best way to try and spot these are from an inflatable raft. The buffer zone surrounding the park is managed jointly with local communities including the native ethnic Tharu who practice subsistence agriculture and produce handicrafts for visitors to supplement their income.

Though getting to Bardia takes more of an effort to reach than Chitwan this helps to keep visitor numbers lower meaning that those who do make it here have a far more meaningful safari experience.
