chitwan wildlife safari

Day 1

Arrival in Chitwan National Park

When you arrive in Chitwan National Park, you’ll be given a short briefing about wildlife and safety before freshening up in your bungalow and grab some lunch. In the afternoon, you’ll have your first encounter with the Chitwan elephants and rhinos. Perched high on the back of your elephant, you’ll be safely out of reach of anything lurking in the tall grass. If your elephant does spot a rhino, he might sound the alarm with a deep growl, just to let the rhino know who’s boss. Next, you’ll set off on foot for a guided walking safari, keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife at every step.

Chitwan National Park & Departure

Chitwan National Park is incredible at dawn when the early morning light sweeps across the plains and shimmers on the rivers. At sunrise, you’ll set off on a canoe trip and guided walk through the jungle, gliding down the Rapti river in a wooden canoe. With any luck, you’ll see crocodiles sunning themselves on the shore as the sun rises. Next, you’ll get back on dry land and begin a jungle walk, hiking along narrow paths through the forest and crossing plains carpeted in tall grass. Be sure to listening for rustling in the leaves – you never know when a rhino might appear! The next day you’ll pack things and move on to your destination. However, if time allows, you can take another early jungle safari or arrange to wash elephants in the nearby river.
