Jungle and Safari Tour Chitwan
Luxury Safari Lodge and Big Jungle Wilderness in Nepal
3-day, 2-night Tour
Relax in an authentic, luxurious resort, deep in the heart of Chitwan’s jungle. We’ll track wild animals on foot, by traditional canoe and also by jeep. If you’re not afraid of things that go bump in the night one of our experienced jungle guides will take you out for a hike by the moonlight.
Optional walking night safari in Chitwan
Travelling via canoe on the river allows us to see the park in a quiet and unobtrusive manner, enabling us a unique perspective and opportunity to see a variety of wildlife.
With our expert local guides in the afternoon we’ll get off of the roads into the Chitwan wilderness, attempting to track animals and trek in the jungle. There are a few viewing towers that also allow us to get high above and see wildlife that otherwise may be camouflaged and hidden in the long grasses. The views from these heights are also outstanding and stretch for many miles in all directions.
You’ll have the afternoon free to visit Durbar Square in the heart of Kathmandu, ride through the streets in a cycle rickshaw, bargain for saris and scarves and explore our favourite city
