Bardiya Jungle Safari is the best way to explore the wildlife and Jungle in Nepal. Bardiya National Park Jungle Safari is the largest as well as the off-the-beaten National Park in Nepal. This national park has preserved some of the best habitats in Asia. Jungle Safari in Nepal provides you with one of the most thrilling experiences in Nepal.

From the beginning, very few people visit and explore this National Park area. However, the park has been contributing to preserving the originality and the wilderness of the National park. It covers an approximate area of 968 sq. km and it protects many plants including Sal forest, grassland, and riverine forest. Since the subtropical forest covers the National park, The Sal trees and other mixed types of vegetation dominate the forest area. Hence,  Bardiya Jungle Safari is a great way to explore the different types of trees and vegetation.

What is the Best Time to Visit Bardia National Park?

Visitors can visit Bardia National Park any time of year, but February through July and September through December are the best times to go. The greatest time to watch tigers is from February to July since they are frequently seen in water sources during the summer. You must, however, put up with the oppressive heat during these months. Consequently, if you want to avoid sunny days, travel between September and December.

    A pure unspoilt Nepali national park.

    The entire vacation was expertly planned! When providing airport shuttles, Oriental Journeys' communication was excellent. I slept at a family-run hotel in Bardiya. The owner was also one of my guides and gave me all the information I needed about the park and its species. The family made me feel at home, and the cuisine was excellent. I spotted six rhinos, a leopard, and three tigers. Several other lovely species, such the paradise flycatcher, are also present. To all nature enthusiasts who desire to see a pristine, undeveloped Nepali national park, I heartily recommend doing this journey.

    Thank you, Jan for your nice compliment. We hope to see you again in the future.
