Bardia jungle safari tour fact

December / January / February [winter months]

Winter time in Nepal but clear skies. They are beautiful months for tourists to travel to Bardia to discover wildlife safari.

March / April / May [spring months]

After Tree leaves fall, the forest looks very thin, so tourists can see wild animals clearly. We have stunning weather to explore the wild animals.

June / July / August [monsoon time]

You feel bad going inside the forest in the rain as you get wet quickly. Rain is falling at the rate of gravity, 32/sec, so it is falling much faster than you are moving. In addition, it is not a good idea to experience safari tour activity as the grasses are growing quickly tall and chances to see wild animals are almost zero. Therefore, the Monsoon season in Nepal is not a good time for tourists to see animals.

September / October / November [autumn season]

Monsoon ends early September but some drops of rains are still possible in September. The explanation is that as raindrops fall through the air, they can draw in many particles of toxins like dander, ash, sulfates, and microorganisms prior to hitting the ground. Evidence that stimulating breaths of stormy air really are better. Thus, it is a very nice time to discover wild life activities.
