We have done the half day Jeep Safari. Thanks to the sharp eyes of our guide we saw a lot of wild. Rhino's, monkeys, elephants, python, deer, lizards, bisons and a lot of birds.

Excellent excursion after the experience of dirt, noisy and chaotic Kathmandu. Somewhat of an endurance test with the 4-5 hr drive to get there but the safari we did was quite interesting. Accommodations are basic but appropriate and the food was fine. Hlepful staff. Nice views from the restaurant in the early morning fog.

A slice of heaven on earth , along the rapti River bank, if you are a fan of wildlife and nature, you need to visit Chitwan National Park. Plan for a weekend and you can see rhinos, crocodiles, gharials, sloath bears, various species of deers and manybirds and butterflies!

Chitwan National Park is a nice place to visit, especially when it's too cold in many other parts of Nepal but don't go there thinking that you are going to do a safari to rival anything in Africa. Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed our stay in Sauraha and had a great time doing a full day's trek through the... More

I am happy with the amount of animals I saw the cat in particular as it is rare and threatened. I was unhappy with the treatment of elephants. It is so barbaric-they work them 12 hrs a day with four tourists on their backs and they do not feed them adequately. The elephants are beaten and it is so very... More

We were able to enjoy a safari in the National Park whilst staying at the Tharu Community Home stay. It was a wonderful experience, we were out for about 3 hours and saw a variety of wild life but the icing on the cake was encountering a rhino! Our guides were excellent.

I went here because I heard that tigers were "viewable." If you stay three days, you are going to see a tiger at least once. I guess I made that up because on our February 19th morning game drive our guide said the last time he spotted a tiger was on December 13th. Disappointing. We did see a lot of... More
