Incredible jungle safari

I did a tour of Bardiya National Park with my family. My kids and wife were thrilled to see various animals by close. We had an expert guide who was well-trained to tackle wild animals. Our first day at Bardia National Park was jungle walking and experiencing Tharu Culture. My kids were a little scared when they saw animals nearby for the first time, but our guide sweetly calmed them. We also interacted with the Tharu people. On the second day, we went on a tiger tracking and jungle safari in a jeep. On our return day, we watched birds in the morning before our departure. The overall journey was just incredible and mind-blowing. Thank you to Boundless Adventure for such a fabulous tour— a highly recommended trekking agency.

The highlight of our tour was seeing the rare faunas, including the Bengal tiger, one-horned rhinoceros, and Gangetic dolphins. Our jungle walk and jungle safari were remarkable with experienced naturalists. Visiting the culture of Tharu Communities was equally thrilling. The tour to Bardia National Park is the perfect combination of natural beauty, diverse wildlife, and cultural immersion, making it a must-visit destination for anyone seeking an authentic wildlife experience in Nepal.
