We were lucky to see so much wildlife (rhino, bear, python, crocodile, gharial and so on). The park is well maintained...the military and government does a good job to protect it.

A number of alternatives to see wildlife. Some pretty good shots but sadly no tiger. It’s wildlife so no guarantees. Keep ride is bumpy but worth it. Canoe is relaxing. Good guides and drivers.

Elephant ride can be bit bumpy and uncomfortable, even you choose to let elephants bear your weight on their backs unnecessary, but there is no other way to get inside the jungle, as they dont allow anyone walking. They load 4 people on one elephant....More

One thing I forgot to mention about getting to Chitwan is that I very strongly recommend flying. We took a bus to arrive and our 5-6 hour journey ended up taking 12 hours. We were lucky, as we met one group of people stuck on the road for 33 hours! We couldn't risk missing our departure flight back to our home country so we decided to fly from Chitwan to Khatmandu and this was worlds better. From wheels up to wheels down was 18 minutes! The process of paying for the tickets was a bit tricky since the card reader at the airport was not working so we had to walk around until we found the the off-site building where I could pay, but it was so worth the extra money to fly and have the rest of the day in Khatmandu. There is no amount of money that could get me to take the drive from Khatmandu to Chitwan again in the future, none.
