Explore the heart of Nepal's jungle in Chitwan National Park

Discover one of Asia’s most spectacular wildlife arenas on this short but well-paced trip. Chitwan National Park, the ‘Heart of the Jungle’ in Nepal, spans 932 kilometres and comprises hundreds of mammal and bird species, from the Asian one-horned rhinoceros to the Paradise flycatcher – as well as the iconic but hard-to-spot Bengal tiger.

After breakfast you will leave the lodge for a dugout canoe adventure on the Rapti River. This is an exciting trip with chances to view marsh mugger crocodiles and various birds that inhabit the riverbanks. There is some flexibility at this stage of the trip, and the activities may vary depending on the time of year, and the known wildlife movements and locations. A late afternoon safari will take you in to the forest and across grasslands to observe the varied and exciting wildlife in the park, including the great Indian rhino and spotted deer, as well as exotic bird life.
