The Bardia jungle safari tour is one of the most popular tourist activities located in the Terai part of western Nepal. It’s the largest national park that covers 968 Square kilometers (374 sq mi) and is the most undisturbed national park in Nepal. Wildlife safari in Bardia is connected to the eastern bank of the Karnali River and bisected by the Babai River.

A Karnali Wildlife Reserve was renamed Bardia Wildlife Reserve and later converted into Bardia National Park in 1988. It covers 70% forest area and is home to 53 mammals including the Royal Bengal Tiger, One Horn Rhino, Swamp Deer, Wild Elephant, and more. Besides Mammals, Bardia is also the home of 407 birds. 

Compared to Chitwan National Park, there are fewer lodges and fewer visitors because of very hot temperatures. Available resorts border the boundary of the park and various jungle/wildlife activities are possible. As it has lush sub-tropical jungles mainly Elephants, Tigers, and one-horned rhinoceros including many rare species of birds and reptiles are inhibiting this place, so is a great place for a jungle safari tour.

Various categories of resorts are available in Bardia. Some of them are the best hotels in Bardia, so you can book Bardia Jungle Resort to familiarize yourself with the vibrant Tharu lifestyles, culture, and tradition. Hotels and resorts are built with modern facilities and arrange jungle safari activities at any time throughout the year.

Best time to visit Bardia for Wildlife safari tour

The best time to visit Bardia National Park in Nepal for a jungle safari tour typically depends on the weather and wildlife viewing opportunities. Bardia National Park is known for its diverse wildlife, including tigers, elephants, rhinoceroses, and numerous bird species. To maximize your safari experience, consider the following factors:

October to February :

October to February considered the best time to visit Bardia National Park. Weather is cooler and more pleasant during these months, and the vegetation is less dense, making it easier to spot wildlife. December and January are especially good months as animals gather around water sources, increasing your chances of sightings.

March to May month :

From March to May month are spring season is another good time to visit Bardia. Starting the weather warming up, and the jungle comes alive with blooming flowers. While the dense vegetation can make wildlife harder to spot compared to winter, it’s still a rewarding time for birdwatching and experiencing the park’s biodiversity.

June to September:

It’s a monsoon season that brings heavy rainfall, which can make jungle trails muddy and impassable. Wildlife is also harder to spot as animals tend to stay deep within the forest to avoid the rain. Often the park remains close for tourist to visit.

September to October:

At this period of time is a post monsoon, can be a transition between the monsoon and the dry season. While the weather is improving, the vegetation may still be dense, making wildlife sightings less likely than in the peak winter months.

In summary, the best time for a jungle safari tour in Bardia National Park is during the winter months (October to February), especially from December to January. During this time, the weather is comfortable, and the chances of wildlife sightings are higher. However, if you prefer warmer weather and can tolerate some vegetation obstruction, visiting in spring (March to May) can also be a great option.

Bardia Jungle Safari Tour Traveler’s Review

The Royal Bengal Tiger

Rated 5.0 out of 5
April 17, 2023

Started on a serene wildlife safari expedition in the enchanting landscapes of western Nepal, and it turned out to be an absolutely awe-inspiring experience! Our full-day jeep safari tour was nothing short of incredible, and luck favored us as we encountered a magnificent Royal Bengal Tiger mere meters away from our vehicle, which left us both thrilled and a bit nervous.

Guiding us through this mesmerizing journey was Navaraj, our expert Bardia nature guide, whose easy-going demeanor and profound knowledge made the entire tour an absolute delight. His passion for the wilderness was infectious, and he added a delightful sense of fun to the adventure!

The whole escapade was undoubtedly well worth it, leaving us with unforgettable memories etched in our hearts. Without a doubt, we are already planning our return for yet another extraordinary safari experience!
