Meghauli Serai, Chitwan National Park
Chitwan provides a holistic wildlife experience which is not just limited to game drives. Guests have the option of exploring the jungle through walking safari, elephant safari and boat safari. Our Naturalists make it an enriching experience. Not only do they share their knowledge about the flora and fauna of the forest but also help guests appreciate their relationship with the local community. On a day with the Mahout, one can learn about the majestic Asian elephants while helping to bathe and feed them. Guests can also visit a Tharu village to fully experience the local life and feel immersed in the destination.
Apart from the magnificent Rhino, appreciate a host of other animals such as sloth bears, Asiatic wild elephants, stripe hyenas, hog deer and the Bengal fox. The river is home to crocodiles and ghariyals (crocodile-like amphibians with a snout, endemic to the Indian Subcontinent) not usually found in the same habitat. The park is a bird watcher’s delight with a count of around 600 including indigenous and migrant species such as the spectacular Great Hornbill, Ruddy Shelduck, Pied Kingfisher, Red-headed Trogon and the endangered Bengal florican to name a few. With active involvement of the local community the conservation efforts in Chitwan are a success story.
