Bardia National Park is one of the best places in the world for spotting the elusive Royal Bengal tiger in the wild. Be taken on daily safaris in search of the unique wildlife of the region.
Keep your eye out for other wildlife that call this park home – Asian elephants, one-horned rhinos, deer, fresh-water dolphins, crocodiles, and rare birds like the kingfisher.
Bardia National Park, in Nepal’s southwest, is far from the usual tourist trail and remote enough to feel like you’re deep on a wildlife expedition.
Discover the local cultures of the region with a visit to a local Tharu village to learn about the way of life in this region of rural Nepal.
This is a join-in trip rather than a scheduled group trip, so if other travellers have booked on the same date you will share included activities, but you may also be lucky enough to have the trip all to yourself.
While there will be opportunities to spot many different kinds of wildlife, sightings cannot be guaranteed as this is a national park where animals are free to roam rather than a zoo or wildlife park.
During your time in Bardia, you may come across the local elephant 'sanctuary' located outside of the national park. Intrepid Travel has a strong elephant welfare policy and we only endorse visiting facilities involving wild animals in captivity if the rationale for the sanctuary operation is in the best interests of the animals involved and if the rescue centre is operating with the highest animal welfare and conservation standards possible. Unfortunately, this sanctuary does not meet our standards, and as such we strongly discourage travellers from visiting this establishment. See the Responsible Travel section for more information.
