Chitwan National Park is found in the rich lowland Terai region adjoining India. The one-horned rhinoceros is almost emblematic of this area, which it shares with a handful of wild elephants, crocodile, buffalo and bison. Deer, such as the spotted and swamp varieties along with sambar, are ubiquitous but there are also antelopes, elusive tigers, leopards, hyenas, sloth bears and jackals.
A handful of Gangetic dolphins survive in the Karnali River and be sure to visit the critically important breeding centre for vultures, which have declined to the point of extinction over the past fifteen years or so but survive here in healthy numbers.
Jeep safaris, nature walks, canoe and cycling safaris are all on offer in Chitwan National Park where you’ll be joined by an expert local guide who will ensure that you don’t miss a thing.
