Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve

Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve

A premier location in Nepal for bird watching.
The Kosi Tapu and the Kosi Barrage in east Nepal provide one of the best places in Nepal to view migratory water fowl, waders and shore birds during the winter months. Many species not recorded elsewhere in the region have been seen here. Thousands of birds congregate here in January and February before they migrate north when the warm weather begins. Kosi Tapu Tented Camp situated on the fringe of the reserve provides the only accommodation to date. Well qualified nature guides take the guests out on walks, jeep drives and boat rides to look for birds and the wild buffalo found only here in Nepal. It is possible to combine this tour with Sun Kosi Raft Trip or with treks in the eastern hills or with Darjeeling / Sikkim extension.

Bardia National Park situated in western Terai of Nepal is one of largest undisturbed parks in the region. The park is the home of many endangered animals, reptiles and birds - including the elusive Tiger. Some years ago several one horned rhinos where Translocation here from Chitwan. Over the years Bardia has also been a good place for tiger viewing - a rare event anywhere. Recently sightings of a group of wild elephants have further enhanced the wildlife experience possible in this beautiful and unspoiled sanctuary. The Bardia Lodge and Tented Camp provides comfortable accommodation and outings in this unique park set on the banks of the Karnali River. A stay in this park can be combined with raft trip down the Karnali and Bheri rivers or with a trek to Dolpo, Rara Lake or Humla in far western Nepal.
