    Best time to visit Bardiya National Park

    The best time to visit Bardia National Park is during the dry season, which typically lasts from October to March. During this period, the weather is clear and pleasant, making it easier to spot wildlife. Vegetation is less dense, and animals are more likely to gather around water sources, increasing the chances of sightings.

    Here's a breakdown of the months within the ideal time frame:

    October to November

    Post-monsoon, these months offer clear skies, fresh air, and lush green landscapes. The temperatures are moderate, making it comfortable for safari activities. It's also the peak season for tourists, so expect more crowds at popular national parks.

    December to February

    These months are considered the winter season in Nepal. While the temperatures can be cooler, especially in the mornings and evenings, wildlife sightings are still good. Some migratory birds arrive during this time, making it ideal for birdwatching enthusiasts.


    As temperatures start to rise, the vegetation begins to dry out, making it easier to spot wildlife. However, the visibility may be slightly reduced as the haze begins to set in.

    While the period from October to March is generally the best time for a Bardia National Park safari, each park has its unique characteristics and may offer slightly different experiences throughout the year.


    Bardia National Park is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including several endangered species. Some of the key animals you might encounter during your safari in the park include:

    Bengal tigers: Bardia National Park is known for its growing population of Bengal tigers, offering a good chance of spotting these elusive big cats.

    One-horned rhinoceros: The park is home to a significant population of one-horned rhinoceros, which were reintroduced from Chitwan National Park.

    Asian elephants: You may encounter wild Asian elephants roaming the park, particularly around the grasslands and riverine forests.

    Leopards: Although less frequently sighted than tigers, the park is home to a healthy population of leopards.

    Swamp deer: Bardia National Park is one of the last remaining habitats of the endangered swamp deer, also known as the Barasingha.

    Gangetic dolphins: These endangered dolphins can be found in the Karnali River, which flows along the western boundary of the park.

    Other mammals: The park is also home to several other mammals, including sambar deer, spotted deer, hog deer, blue bulls (nilgai), barking deer, langur monkeys, rhesus macaques, sloth bears, honey badgers, and otters.

    Birds: Bardia National Park is an excellent destination for birdwatching, with over 400 species of birds recorded. Some notable species include the lesser Florican, Bengal florican, Sarus crane, and various species of storks, egrets, herons, and kingfishers.

    Reptiles: The park is home to several reptile species, such as mugger crocodiles, gharials, Indian rock pythons, and various species of turtles and snakes.

    While sightings are never guaranteed, visiting Bardia National Park during the recommended months and participating in various safari activities led by experienced guides can increase your chances of spotting a diverse range of wildlife.

    Insect repellent: A good insect repellent will help protect you from mosquito and insect bites.

    Binoculars: Binoculars are essential for spotting wildlife and birds from a distance. A good pair of binoculars will enhance your safari experience and make it easier to observe animals in their natural habitat.

    Camera: A camera with a zoom lens is ideal for capturing wildlife and birds from a distance. Make sure you have extra batteries and memory cards.

    Water bottle: Stay hydrated during your safari by bringing a refillable water bottle. Many lodges and accommodations provide filtered water for refilling.

    Small backpack: A small backpack or daypack is useful for carrying your essentials, such as water, snacks, a camera, and binoculars, during your safari activities.

    Personal medications: Don't forget any personal medications you may need, as well as a basic first-aid kit with items like adhesive bandages, pain relievers, and any necessary prescription medications.

    Travel documents: Bring your passport, travel insurance, necessary permits, and any other required documentation.

    By packing these essential items, you'll be well-prepared for your jungle safari in Bardia National Park, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience while exploring the park's diverse wildlife and landscapes.

    Tipping is a common practice in Nepal, including during a Bardiya National Park safari tour, as a way to show appreciation for good service. While tipping is not mandatory, it is customary to provide tips to guides, drivers, and other service providers if you are satisfied with their services. Here are some tipping guidelines to consider:

    • Safari Guides: The safari guides who accompany you during your wildlife excursions in Bardiya National Park provide valuable knowledge and assistance. It is customary to tip the guide as a gesture of appreciation. A suggested tip amount could range from NPR 500 to NPR 1,000 per day, depending on the level of service and your satisfaction.
    • Mahouts: If you have interactions with the mahouts (elephant caretakers) during activities such as elephant safaris, you may consider tipping them as well. A suggested tip amount could range from NPR 200 to NPR 500, depending on the duration and quality of the experience.
    • Lodge Staff: If you receive excellent service from the lodge staff, such as the front desk, restaurant staff, or housekeeping, you can consider leaving a small tip. This is generally around NPR 100 to NPR 200 for the staff members who directly assist you.
    • Drivers: If you have a dedicated driver who transports you to and from Bardiya National Park or within the park, you may consider tipping them as well. A suggested tip amount could range from NPR 300 to NPR 500 per day.
    • Other Service Providers: Depending on the specific activities or services you engage in during your safari tour, there may be additional service providers like boatmen or local guides. If you feel they have provided exceptional service, you can consider offering a small tip as well.

    Remember that tipping amounts are subjective, and it is entirely up to your discretion and satisfaction with the services provided. Tips can be given in Nepalese Rupees (NPR) as cash directly to the individuals you are tipping.

    It's always a good idea to have small denomination currency readily available for tipping purposes. Additionally, if you are part of a group tour, it is common to pool tips together and present them to the guide or tour leader as a collective gesture of appreciation.
