Best of best Wildlife Tours in Nepal
12 Days trip
This tour explores two finest national parks of Nepal in the lowlands that offers the best chance experiencing the diverse wildlife of Nepal in their natural habitat. The two national parks visited maximize your chances of wildlife sighting. Although there is no guarantee to see tigers and even some other animals some time as that is the nature! In Nepal, animal viewing can be challenging, but there’s nothing like the satisfaction of seeing them in their natural habitat. Chitwan National Park is famous for the endangered one-horned rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) which is less often seen in Bardia. This tour allows you to explore protected habitats that help preserve our natural heritage. Other highlights include the lesser cat (leopard), civet cats, sloth bear, gaur, five types of deer, wild boars, anteaters, porcupines and over 600 species of birds (over sixty percent of birds found in the whole country), including many rare and endangered species.
You also visit Lumbini, which as well as being the birthplace of Lord Buddha, is an Important Bird Area (farmland birds and Sarus Crane Conservation site)

What to expect and not to expect
Remember you tour is into the natural areas, not in captivity and hence sighting of major wildlife depends entirely on their movement and the chance. Sometimes you will be lucky to be able to sight almost all major animals from the park and but some time may be very few major animals or could be nothing at some point. However, taking a walk, elephant back safari or boat/canoe into nature is never disappointing for the nature lovers. There is always an opportunity to come across many beautiful birds and animals signs, which is equally rewarding experience being in nature.
