Bardia National Park was declared a national reserve in 1976 and covers an area of 374 square miles. The Babai River runs along to the south of the park while the Shivalik Hills adorn its northern extremes. The park comprises of grasslands and forests. Bardia has a large number of deer species like the Chital, the Hog Deer, Barasingha, Sambar and the Swamp deer, among others. Other animals include the Antelope, the Blue Bull, and Himalayan Tahr, Langur Monkey, Rhesus Macaque and the sloth bear. A solid population of the wild boar also inhabits the park. Nearby in the Karnali, Girwa, and Babai Rivers, you can see the Gharial and the freshwater Dolphin. The park provides safe haven for many rare animals like the wild elephant and the rhinoceros. You can also see birds like the Bengal florican (extremely endangered), the silver-eared mesia and the Sarus (Crane).
This tour enables you to observe over 250 species of birds and 30 species of mammals in their natural habitat. An elephant-back safari is the best way to watch the animals and birds at close quarters among the deep forest and marshes. Also, you'll get some insight on the local ethnic groups of the area, particularly the Tharu group. Less tourists visit Bardia National Park than Chitwan National Park, so you will have a deeper cultural experience here. Come check out this gorgeous, wild area with us!
