Do you enjoy being in woods, surrounded by nothing but trees, birds, and animals? If you want to go somewhere similar, you can do Chitwan Jungle Safari in Nepal.
As its name says, Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour happens in Chitwan National Park, the oldest national park in the country. With 367 sq mi, the national park resides 97 km away from Kathmandu in the dense plainlands and inner lowlands of the south-central part of Nepal and touches four districts: Chitwan, Nawalpur, Parsa, and Makwanpur.
Generally, the park is well-known for its encounters with One-horned Rhinos and Bengal Tigers. Altogether over 700 wildlife species live in the woods of this national park, including crocodiles, sloth bears, leopard cats, golden jackals, hog deers, and many more. Likewise, the dense woods of sal species trees inside Chitwan National Park is a nest of over 543 bird species. Some of the common birds of the park are Spotted Eagle, Kingfishers, Egrets, Stork, Peafowl, Brahminy ducks, and others.

All you require to perform is to remember us. We’ll offer the best plan as per your need and wish.
The journey to Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour begins with a 4-5 hour bus ride from Kathmandu. It will be a pleasant journey along the Prithivi Highway, which is lush and twisty. Later we will reach Chitwan, where we will set up in a hotel for a rest after the drive.
We'll go for an evening stroll around the Rapti River's riverbed once our bodies have been refreshed. We will also watch a lovely sunset view from the view tower on the shore of the river. Following that, the local Tharu ethnic people will put on a cultural display, primarily a dance performance, for us. The first day will come to a conclusion at this point, and we will return to the hotel for the night.
After breakfast, we’ll start doing activities on the Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour one by one. Firstly, we’ll start with a canoe ride on a wooden boat on the Rapti River, which goes along the peaceful national park. During the whole process, we’ll see various rare birds and several species of crocodiles.
Next, we’ll return to our hotel for lunch before doing an elephant safari deep in the woods. The Elephant Safari will be the opportunity to observe the enriched flora and fauna of the region. If lucky, we will also see the king of the jungle, the Bengal Tiger. We'll have an elephant bath at the end of the elephant safari, only if you wish. This will be followed by visits to the Elephant and Crocodile Breeding Centers. We’ll return to our hotel for dinner and the night’s sleep.
On the last day of Chitwan Jungle Safari, we will have a morning visit to Beeshazari Lake(20 Thousand Lake), a perfect place for bird watching. We’ll spend some peaceful time by the lake before going back to the hotel for breakfast.
After breakfast, we’ll prepare to leave Chitwan. The following 4-5 hours of a bus drive through the same highway will bring us to Kathmandu. And the Chitwan Jungle Safari Tour will conclude when we return to our hotel in Kathmandu.
