In addition to an incredible number of mammals, Bardia National Park is home to over 400 unique bird species, including the white-rumped vulture and the bar-headed geese. To get the most out of the experience of bird-watching in the park, guests are advised to bring their binoculars and guidebooks: this is serious business for serious bird-watchers!
If the best way to experience a place is from the perspective of a native, why not let an elephant lead the way? Guests can have the chance to cross an item off their bucket-list and take a ride on an elephant through the park, observing the world around from atop one of the largest mammals.
With so many exotic mammals living in the protected wildlife area, no one can go wrong with a good old-fashioned jeep safari. Guests can zip around the 374 squared miles of the park to see elephants, tigers, rhinoceros, and many other mammals in their natural habitat.
It might not provide as much mileage as a jeep safari, but a jungle walk is a great way for guests to get up-close and personal with the vast varieties of flora and fauna that flourish in Bardia National Park. Visitors may even trek to the observation tower in the park to check it all out from above.
For the thrill-seeking guests, the Rapti River provides an excellent opportunity to raft through the park. If they are lucky, guests will also have the chance to observe animals taking a drink or bath – including the crocodiles that often line the riverbed.
Just outside the boundaries of the park is the Tharu Village, home to the Tharu people, an identified nation by the Government of Nepal. Guests can spend some time with the people of this village, learning about life in the foothills of the Himalayas and experiencing the tribe’s different customs for themselves.
