What is Jungle Safari about?|
When you visit a new country, you often meet new people and new places. Have you
ever wondered meeting new Animals and Natural Beauty? Jungle Safari let's you do
just that! It is also a way to pay your respect to the animals by indulging in
this outback adventure sports which brings you closer to the nature. When you
visit Nepal, add the Jungle Safari in your `To-do List'. You won't regret it.
The outdoor adventure sports into the wilderness to see wild animals, birds
and natural beauty. You ride on an elephant's back or on a four wheeler jeep
accompanied by a fully trained guide (also known as expert Naturalists) for the
love of nature and animals. In Nepal, Chitwan and Bardia are two hot dishes on
the menu. Pick Chitwan as this is Nepal's most popular National Park offering
excellent opportunity to see Royal Bengal Tigers, One horned Rhino, crocodile
and thrilling wilderness experience into its deep and thick jungle. Pick Bardia
also, as this is another
National Park, which offers excellent jungle safari.
Here too you can ride on an elephant or a take four wheel to discover some of
Nepal's unspoiled natural habitats. Most jungle safari consists of canoe rides
on the Jungle Rivers, nature walks, birds watching excursions and quick tours
around the villages to discover unique culture and traditions of the local
village people. There are also scheduled cultural-musical programs performed by
the villages, which are also in the Jungle Safari itinerary. Chitwan and Bardia
have excellent accommodation facilities right in the jungle so one can start and
relax at ease.
