Bardiya National Park, situated in the western part of Nepal, is another excellent destination for jungle safaris. Here’s what you can expect from a Bardiya National Park jungle safari:

    • Jeep Safari: Explore the park’s grasslands, riverine forests, and hills on a jeep safari. Trained guides and naturalists accompany visitors, providing insights into the park’s ecology and helping spot wildlife.
    • Elephant Safari: Similar to Chitwan, Bardiya also offers elephant safaris, allowing visitors to traverse through the park on the back of an elephant. This provides a unique and elevated vantage point for observing wildlife.
  3. Bird Watching: Bardiya is a paradise for bird enthusiasts, boasting over 400 species of birds. Bird watching tours provide opportunities to spot a variety of resident and migratory bird species.

  6. Best Time to Visit: The best time for a jungle safari in Bardiya National Park is during the dry season, from October to March. During this period, wildlife is more active, and the weather is generally more favorable for safari activities.
