Elephant Back Safari. One can monitor wildlife activities in the deep jungle while sitting on a well trained elephant. The duration of elephant back safari is about one and half hours. Our trained naturalist will accompany you and can explain about the animals, flora and fauna of the Park. Tharus are the indigenous inhabitants of the Terai. Our expert guide will help you to meet the Tharu people and experience their traditional way of living. This brings you many years back to human civilization and in the evening, we will entertain you with Tharu folk dances performed by Tharu troupes and invite guests to join them in this rhythmic display.
Jeep Safari is a fast and safer way to discover a wide range of the forest environment in the Chitwan National Park. A four hour jeep drive covers about 50 km inside the park including the crocodile breeding center. During the canoe trip on the Rapti River, you will be able to view an array of nature's beautiful riverside scenery including different types of birds, two types of crocodile - Gharial and Mugger basking on the river bank, and other aquatic creatures.
