About Bardia National Park
The Bardia National Park is located in Nepal’s southwest and is located in the Bardia district, which is only accessible by road. In order to reach Bardia via air, you must fly into Nepalgunj, which is one of the largest cities in Nepal and one of the most popular tourist destinations, and then take the road up to the National Park.
A large national park in the southern Terai region of Nepal, Bardia National Park is one of the best places to see the Royal Bengal tiger. This Park has largely remained undeveloped and undisturbed for a long time. There are a total of 968 square kilometers (374 square miles) of land in the Park, with an average elevation of 415 meters (1,362 ft).
Visiting Bardia National Park is a memorable experience for nature and wildlife enthusiasts. We will begin our trip by flying to Nepalgunj. When we reach the National Park after driving for two hours from Nepalgunj, our staff will welcome us to our resort and provide information about the trip. Lunch will be served there, and then we will visit Tharu village and the crocodile breeding center.
On the following day, we will enter the dense forest of Bardia National Park, where we will see many species of animals. Among these species are Gharials, Marsh muggers, crocodiles, one-horned rhinos, monkeys, pythons, wild elephants, black buck, wild boar, spotted deer, hog deer, and swamp deer.
The next day, we will visit the Karnali River to watch birds. The Park contains about 400 types of birds, including Bengal Floricans and Sarus Cranes, which are endangered. In addition, we will have an elephant safari through Bardia national park on our last day, and we will have a refreshing lunch before heading back to Kathmandu. We guarantee that you will be able to see the true beauty of Bardia on this Tour. Our goal is for every visitor to remember an unforgettable experience, and we strive to keep it going every time to maintain our quality services.
Itinerary for the Tour
As mentioned earlier, we will depart from the domestic terminal of Tribhuvan International Airport after breakfast to fly to Nepalgunj in the south western part of Nepal for one hour. In the beginning of the flight, we will see lush green hills below us and shimmering mountains to the side, and then as we approach our destination, we will suddenly see a completely different landscape of flat plains of green below us.
After landing in Nepalgunj, we will head straight to Bardia National Park, which is located two hours away from the airport. After checking in at the resort, we will eat lunch and get a briefing on our itinerary. Afterwards, we will stroll around the stunning Tharu village where we can learn about their lifestyles and cultures, as well as visit the crocodile breeding center. All in all, we are sure you will enjoy the first of your journeys towards Bardia National Park.
On the second day of the Tour, our journey to see Royal Bengal tigers and one-horned rhinoceros begins with a hearty breakfast followed by a trek into the deep forest with our guide and porter. In Bardia National Park, you will find Gharials, Marsh muggers, crocodiles, monkeys, pythons, and wild elephants. Other animals include blackbucks, wild boars, spotted deer, hog deer, swamp deer, and, I believe, many other species.
There are towers inside the jungle where we can silently wait for the wild animals to cross our path by watching for their footprints, scats, scratches, and droppings. We can keep track of these wild animals by looking for their footprints, droppings, and their scratches on trees. The second day of our Bardia national park tour will be successful; after, we will eat lunch and walk deeper into the jungle in order to spot animals. We will return to our hotel in the evening and enjoy our dinner with colorful Tharu cultural dances.
The National Park is located approximately 30 kilometers from the Karnali River, so today, we will drive there. It is a day dedicated to watching beautiful, colorful birds of various species that visit waterholes to drink or that live in trees near the water. We will row a boat and go on a canoe ride to see even more birds.
If we are lucky, we will see tigers, rhinos quenching their thirst in the river, and even dolphins swimming in the river. There will also be animals such as gharials and muggers in the river. We can enjoy the view of the flowing Karnali river during the day.
On the last day of our journey, we will go on an elephant safari, which will be a very different experience than walking through the dense forest. We will be able to enjoy wildlife from a safer height while also being close enough to see the animals closely.
We will ride elephants so as not to disturb or scare the wild animals. After the safari, we will rest for lunch and continue to the Nepalgunj airport. We will fly from there to Kathmandu.

Suitable Time to Visit the Park
The weather is one of the most important things to consider when planning a trip. Bardia National Park is open throughout the year. However, the best time to visit is between February and June, when the dry season ends and the hot season begins. There are more chances to see tigers and rhinos near water holes during this time, as it is foggy in the winter. From November to January, animals hide in dense forests.
