Bardia National Park
Arguably the more desirable Terai National Park for dedicated wildlife enthusiasts, Bardia in the far west of Nepal. Being further away from Kathmandu Bardia is nothing like as busy as Chitwan is nowadays. The Bardia National Park is the largest National Park in the entire Terai region of Nepal and is indeed also home to the Bengal Tiger. Some say you have a better chance of seeing tigers in Bardia than at Chitwan. With the creation of the 'next door' Banke National Park, combined with Bardia this is now the largest tiger conservation area in Asia. Bardia is also home to the Asian elephant, the one-horned rhino, leopard, mugger crocodile and even the Gangetic dolphin. Over 300 species of birds also call Bardia home.
Even by private vehicle, Bardia is an arduous 12 hour drive from Kathmadu. It is better reached from Kathmandu by flying to Nepalgunj, a 45 minute flight and around 2 hours by road.
The Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge is the 'top end' accommodation of choice in Bardia. Just nine luxuriously appointed en-suite bedrooms, delightful gardens and attentive staff give the Karnali Lodge that 'exclusive, intimate' feel.
OK....so it's not as "posh" as Tiger Tops, but it is much better value and has all the "creature comforts" too. Our clients invariably provide very positive feedback about the Forest Hideway, particularly with regard to the quality of the wildlife actvities they provide as well as the very friendly staff. All with traditional Tharu style.
