The Bardia jungle safari tour is one of the most popular tourist activities located in the Terai part of western Nepal. It is 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.

The Bardia National Park was a Karnali Wildlife Reserve before and was renamed Bardia Wildlife Reserve and later converted into Bardia National Park in 1988. The area of Bardia National Park is covered with 70% forest area and is home to 53 mammals including 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. All available resorts border the boundary of the park and various jungle/wildlife activities are possible. The resorts are built with modern facilities and arrange jungle safari activities at any time throughout the year.

The park has lush sub-tropical jungles but the inhabitants of elephants, Tigers, and one-horned rhinoceros include many rare species of birds and reptiles, thus it is a great place to do a jungle safari tour.

There are various categories of resorts in Bardia. Some of them are the best hotel in Bardia, so you can book Bardia jungle resort to familiarize yourself with the vibrant Tharu lifestyles, culture, and tradition.

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 a safari tour activity as the grasses are growing quickly tall and the 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 in early September but some drops of rain 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 wildlife activities.

Bardia Jungle Safari Tour information including activities:-

1. Jungle walk:

Walking in allows you to explore the rich diversity of the jungle, grasslands, and rivers. This is the best way to see wildlife and nature closely. Your Nature guide can give you in-depth information on the habitats you pass through, and details of the plant and animal life you encounter, and will brief you on general tracking tips.

2. Rafting safari:

An early morning 30 km drive by jeep will drop you by the Karnali River. Followed by a serene day rafting down the gentle Karnali. Drifting down the river allows you to spot wildlife, especially the endangered freshwater Genetic dolphin, the gharial crocodile, exotic birds, and the big game on the nearby river banks. Swimming is also possible and sometimes the dolphins may join you!

3. Jeep safari:

Exploring the Bardia jeep safari tour is another fastest way to see the park. It allows you to journey deep into the jungle. You visit some of the best viewing towers and you go off-road in a four-wheel-drive vehicle for an unforgettable safari experience.

Why Bardia Jungle Safari Tours?

Bardia Jungle Safari Tour Package comes with a combo packages including all meals and accommodation along with wilderness safari activities. The Bardia National Park is the biggest jungle playground of the Royal Bengal Tiger and you can partake in the definite shot of seeing a tiger in Bardia during mid-year. As per the overview of 2019, Bardia is the home of 87 regal Bengal tigers.

As the Bardia is located 450 kilometers far from Kathmandu, it takes about 12 hours by a local Bus drive as a minimum. Thus, there are few tourists all around the year. We suggest the Bardia Jungle Safari tour package only for 3 nights and 4 days. Tourists can extend their trip on request. However, if you wish to go for a short trip for a jungle safari trip? we suggest Chitwan National Park Jungle Safari tours.

Have in mind that we never use Elephant back safari as we respect animals. Thus, remember Gokyo Treks & Expedition company for all types of jungle safari tours to make your holiday unforgettable.

Bardia Jungle Safari Tour Traveller’s Review

The Royal Bengal Tiger

Rated 5 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!

I cannot say how satisfied I am with Gokyo Treks company and its staff! Very well put together. Ammar, the leader, and Kamal were great guides taking a bunch of people with no experience and making it a trip to remember. Worth at every cost.
