Chitwan is the richest wildlife reserve in Asia with an area of 932 sq,km. Easy access in 5-6 hours by bus riding or 35 minute short flight from Kathmandu or Pokhara.

Elephant riding and walking through the woods makes the unique experience of a safari interesting.

The number and course of your safari activities are determined by the number of nights you book for. Two nights - three days programs could include activities like Elephant back safari, jungle walk, bird watching, dugout canoe rides on the river and a visit to the elephant briefing. In the evening a cultural show of the traditional Terai dances are a must. By booking three nights – four days program you could add up a few more specialized excursions like a jungle jeep drive and a visit to the elephant breeding centre. Unlike African animals, those in Chitwan tend to be rather solitary and shy, but the chances of seeing most of the species are very good, owing to the experience of the local guides and the fine vantage point from the back of an elephant. Indeed, these elephant rides are an attraction in themselves and there are also boat trips arranged to see the crocodiles and dolphins. To further enhance your jungle experience and add to the trill and excitement, a stay in one of the lodges in the parks will give you a memorable holiday of a lifetime.
