Arrive in Chitwan National Park.
From Kathmandu, you can get to Chitwan by air (25 minutes) or private transport (6-7 hours) or tourist bus (8-9 hours). From Pokhara, it takes 5-6 hours by private transport or 6-7 hours by tourist bus. Due to ongoing construction works, significant travel dealys are expected.
After lunch at your lodge, embark on a game drive to the forest. Jeep safari is operated during the dry season only and may cancel due to insufficient participants. In that case, alternative elephant back safari or jungle trek will be provided. Most commonly sighted animals are one-horned rhinos, deer, wild boar and monkeys. One-horned Rhinos were once almost extinct in the early 70s! We will be always on the lookout for less frequently seen animals such as bears, leopards and Bengal tigers. Although the tiger population is believed to be about 100 in the park, it's a territorial animal and due to thick vegetation, chances of seeing one is very rare!
In the evening, attend an informative slide show on Chitwan’s flora and fauna, history of the park and the conservation efforts, conducted by the in-house naturalist who is usually a local with wealth of knowledge on the park.
Overnight at the lodge.
