    Elephant Safari in Nepal

Once known as the Royal Chitwan national park is now just Chitwan national park. This UNESCO world heritage site and a national park was once a hunting ground for royals for big games. Now it protects some rare species of plant, animals and birds. Chitwan national park makes a part of any tours in Nepal because it offers exceptionally beautiful wildlife safaris in the country.

Chitwan which is the largest and the first national park in the country is located in the district of Chitwan. It takes around 5 hours to reach chitwan from Kathmandu and the center of Chitwan from where all activities begin is Sauraha. Sauraha is located in the heart of the national park and is facilitated with modern day amenities. The modern houses, tribal huts and the wild animals all live together as a small and happy family in here.

What to see in Chitwan National Park

Jungle walks can last from anywhere in between one day to one week, no matter the length you will not regret it. Depending on the time of the year you will see different species of animals. The more longer your stay and the deeper you venture the better are the chances of spotting rare species like the Rhino or the Tiger.

Jeep Jungle Safari is a very good mode of viewing the exotic animals in the national park in a very short time. Jeep jungle safaris are very good when combined with other forms of jungle safari’s. This type of safari takes you deep in the jungle and chances of spotting tigers and rhinos are better.

Elephant rides are the most easily accessible and convenient way of jungle safari in Chitwan national park. This as well is the best way of seeing one horn rhino and the best time to spot is either early in the morning or late in the evening.

Elephant breeding center is located in the heart of Sauraha and was made in the first place to protect the endangered elephants in the region. Most of the time there are several baby elephant in the breeding center and it is an absolute privilege to watch elephants eating and doing their chores on everyday basis.

Elephant washing is another beautiful act you can do while in the national park. It is a very noble job as well to take care of the elephant those work day in and day out by taking the tourist for jungle safaris.

River boating and Canoeing on Rapti river is a fabulous way of watching wildlife in their natural state. The boat ride helps people see crocodile, alligators, deer, bear and many others. Local canoe boats are made out of single tree stem and are very thin and look unstable but however have never had major mishaps or reported accidents.

Tharu village, culture and dance is another unique way of life you can experience while you are in the Chitwan national park. Tharu are the original inhabitants of Chitwan national park and had big communities before Sauraha became business oriented. Even till the day there are small communities of Tharu people who live right by the buffer zone of the national park and they still represent unique way of life.
