Overview

Overview

Bardiya National Park is one of the undisturbed protected areas in the lower belt of western Nepal in the Bardiya district. The initial Karnali Wildlife Reserve was extended into the 968 km² and declared a National Park in 1988. The park was established to preserve the ecosystem and protect the habitat for several endangered and rare floras and faunas, with 70% of the subtropical moist deciduous forest and alluvial grasslands. A 45-minute flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj will bring travelers to the lowest altitude of Nepal, full of wildlife and dense woods. The city is neighboring two major national Parks; Banke National Park and Bardiya National Park.  

The protected area is intersected by the Babai River and is bordered by the Karnali River on the west of the park. These two rivers are the habitat for the 642 faunal species, including a few alligators, 23 types of reptiles, and 125 species of fish. The Nepalese Army protects the Bardiya National Park. Similarly, wild elephants and Bengal tigers often cross human settlements and roads.

The Bardiya National Park has many lodges, resorts, and homestays to provide the best wildlife experience. The unforgettable elephant ride and jeep safari introduce you to the dense forest, elephants, rhinos, tigers, leopards,s and several other wild animals and birds. Travelers can also enjoy the real adventure of camping, hiking, rafting, cycling, canoe riding, and night campfires with hot barbecues of organically reared chicken and roasted boar. 

The park is home to at least 53 species of mammals including wild elephants, one-horned rhinoceros, Bengal tiger, swamp deer, blackbuck, rusty-spotted cat, fishing cat, and Gangetic dolphin. The Bardiya National Park protects 407 recorded bird species including bar-headed geese, white-rumped vultures, Bengal florican, Grey-crowned Prinia, striated grassbirds, and other rare birds. 

While the park is full of wildlife and dense forest, it also offers the incredible cultural experience of the indigenous tribal called Rana Tharu residing in the protected area. The park is quite famous for the living museum of the Tharu indigenous community including homestays and cultural dances which preserve their culture and ethnicity. Guests are welcomed with a smile and garland following cultural dance in ethnic attires.
