FOOT AND SHADOWS WALKING HOLIDAY TOURS

Bardiya National Park Safari

This Park located in Nepal’s Far South Western Terai, east of Karnali River, and it is one of the largest undisturbed areas of wilderness in the Terai region. About 70 % of the park is covered with sal forest with the remaining, a balanced mixture of grassland, savannah and riverine forest.

Since farming has ceased in the Babai Valley, natural vegetation is regenerating, making it an area of prime habitat for wildlife. The park provides excellent habitat for endangered animals like the rhinoceros, wild elephant, tiger, swamp deer, black buck, ghariel crocodile, marsh mugger crocodile and Gangetic dolphin. Endangered birds include the Bengal florican, lesser florican, silver eared mesia and Sarus crane. More than 30 different mammals, over 200 species of birds, and many snakes, lizards and fish have been recorded in the park’s forest, grassland and river habitats. A good number of resident and migratory birds are found in the park.
