    Rich Biodiversity

    Chitwan National Park stands as a testament to Nepal's commitment to biodiversity conservation. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this park sprawls across 932 square kilometers of the Terai lowlands, safeguarding a staggering variety of ecosystems, from dense sal forests to marshy grasslands and shimmering water bodies. Over the span of our carefully curated 2-night, 3-day safari, you will be plunged into this vibrant ecological wonder.

    Mammals: With over 50 species of mammals gracing its landscapes, Chitwan is home to some of the subcontinent's most iconic creatures. Royal Bengal tigers stealthily tread its underbrush, while one-horned rhinoceroses majestically roam the grassy plains. Your safari may also treat you to sights of leopards, wild elephants, sloth bears, and various species of deer, including the spotted, sambar, and barking deer.

    Birdlife: Ornithologists and bird lovers will be delighted with the avian spectacle Chitwan offers. With over 500 bird species, including endangered ones, the park resonates with the chirps and calls of birds such as the paradise flycatcher, lesser adjutant, and regal hornbills. Early morning and dusk are particularly magical times for bird-watching.

    Reptiles and Amphibians: The park's rivers, such as the Rapti and Narayani, slither with the likes of the gharial and marsh mugger crocodiles, sunning themselves on the river banks or gliding surreptitiously in its waters. The park's moist environment also supports various amphibians, making the nighttime chorus of frogs and toads an auditory treat.

    Flora: It's not just the fauna that's impressive. Chitwan boasts a rich diversity of flora. From towering sal trees that dominate the park's forests to the elephant grass of its meadows, and countless species of flowering plants, ferns, and mosses — the park paints a lush picture of tropical and subtropical vegetation.

    Your Chitwan National Park Safari promises a deep dive into the heart of Nepal's most treasured biodiversity hotspot. Every trail ventured, every bird spotted, and every ripple in the water introduces travelers to the complex, interconnected world of nature, where every species, no matter how big or small, plays a vital role. Experience nature in its truest form, wild, unaltered, and beautifully chaotic.

    Authentic Cultural Immersion

    Cultural Performances: As dusk sets in, the rhythmic beats of the madal (a traditional drum) herald the beginning of a mesmerizing evening. The Tharu Stick Dance, a traditional performance, is more than just entertainment. It's a window into the community's folklore, traditions, and celebrations. The energy, colors, and narratives of these dances leave an indelible mark on one's memory.

    Local Cuisine: Delight your taste buds with authentic Tharu cuisine. Prepared using age-old recipes and locally sourced ingredients, dishes like Dhikri (rice flour dumplings) and fish caught fresh from the Rapti River offer a gastronomic journey that complements the cultural experience.

    Interaction with Locals: The best cultural immersion often comes from genuine interactions. Engage in conversations with local Tharu elders, listen to their tales of yesteryears, learn about their customs, or even partake in their daily activities, be it farming or fishing.

    Embarking on a safari to Chitwan National Park is undoubtedly an adventure of a lifetime. However, to make your experience seamless and memorable, here are some crucial notes and recommendations:

    • Ensure you have travel insurance covering potential medical emergencies or accidents.


    • Dress in neutral colors to blend in with the surroundings, making wildlife observation easier.

      Naturally blessed Chitwan

      Chitwan national park tour is my life memory. Last week I was in Chitwan national park. I found Luxury Holidays on Facebook. After a short conversation, I booked the trip. Visiting Chitwan was so nice, canoeing, jeep safari, nature walk elephant ride and elephant bath all were pretty much amazing. In the morning there were so many birds and watching those birds was very nice. One thing that I loved much on this trip was the Cultural program in the evening. The cultural and traditional dance was so amazing. Luxury holidays provided us with luxurious tourist vehicles for traveling, and 4 Star hotels for accommodation. We tasted some of the delicious foods and were on the meal plans for the trip. That tour was more amazing than the job of the LHN.

      Thank you LHN team for such a wonderful vacation. I hope we will be together soon.

    Safety during the Chitwan National Park Safari (2 Nights, 3 Days)

    Ensuring the safety and well-being of our guests during the Chitwan National Park Safari is our paramount concern. Navigating a dense jungle with its myriad of wildlife does pose certain risks. With proper precautions and guidelines, these risks can be minimized. Here are essential safety measures and guidelines for the safari:

    • Guided Tours: Always stay with your designated guide. Our guides are trained and experienced in jungle treks, understand animal behavior, and are familiar with the terrains and trails of Chitwan.
    • Dress Appropriately: Wear neutral-colored clothing to blend in with the environment. Bright colors might attract unwanted attention from wild animals. Sturdy shoes are a must, especially for jungle walks, to prevent slips or trips.
    • Stay Alert: Always be aware of your surroundings. Avoid wandering away from your group or designated areas. Listen to your guide's instructions diligently, especially during wildlife sightings.
    • Avoid Provoking Animals: Keep a safe distance from all wild animals. Avoid making loud noises, sudden movements, or using flash photography, which could provoke or disturb them.
    • Stay Calm: In case of an unexpected encounter with a wild animal, stay calm and avoid direct eye contact. Follow your guide's immediate instructions.
    • Jeep Safaris: Remain seated during jeep safaris. Do not lean out or try to touch the animals. Seat belts, where provided, should be worn at all times.
    • Elephant Safety: If opting for an elephant ride (although we encourage alternatives due to ethical considerations), always approach the elephant from the front, let it sense you first, and avoid making sudden movements.
    • Avoid Nighttime Wandering: Wild animals are more active during the night. Stay within the premises of your accommodation post-sunset and avoid venturing out.
    • Stay Hydrated and Protected: Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration, especially in hot and humid conditions. Use mosquito repellent to protect against insect bites.
    • Emergency Protocols: Familiarize yourself with the emergency procedures of your accommodation and the park. Know the location of first aid kits and understand the nearest evacuation routes and points.
    • Respect Local Communities: If you're interacting with local communities, always maintain respect. A friendly approach ensures a harmonious experience.

    Safety, respect for the environment, and an understanding of the nuances of the wild are crucial for a memorable experience in Chitwan National Park. With these guidelines in mind, your safari will not only be enjoyable but also secure. Rest assured, with Luxury Holidays Nepal, you are inexperienced and responsible hands.

    Insurance for the Chitwan National Park Safari (2 Nights, 3 Days)

    While the Chitwan National Park Safari is primarily a low-risk activity compared to high-altitude trekking or mountain expeditions, it's still vital to be prepared for unexpected events. Travel insurance acts as a safety net, ensuring that you are protected against unforeseen circumstances that could disrupt or affect your trip. Here are some insights and recommendations regarding insurance for your safari:

    • Medical Emergencies: Ensure that your insurance covers potential medical emergencies or accidents you might encounter during your safari. This includes treatment, hospitalization, and, in extreme cases, emergency evacuation.
    • Trip Cancellations or Interruptions: Choose a policy that covers trip cancellations or interruptions due to personal, medical, or environmental reasons. This can compensate for any non-refundable bookings or reservations.
    • Baggage Loss or Damage: Given the remote location and the modes of transport, there's a potential risk of baggage misplacement or damage. Your insurance should provide coverage for lost, stolen, or damaged personal belongings.
    • Personal Liability: In the rare event that you are found to be liable for causing injury to another person or damaging property, personal liability coverage will protect you from potential legal claims.
    • Activity-specific Coverage: Ensure your insurance policy covers safari activities, such as jeep rides or canoeing. Some insurance providers categorize certain activities as "adventurous" and might not automatically include them in standard policies.
    • Duration of Coverage: Your policy should cover the entire duration of your trip, from the day of departure to the day of return.
    • Local Evacuation: Though unlikely in Chitwan, if there's a need for immediate medical attention, ensure that your policy covers costs related to local transport or evacuation to the nearest medical facility.
    • Check the Excess: This is the amount you'd have to pay out-of-pocket before your insurance covers the rest. A lower excess generally means a higher premium, so find a balance that's right for you.
    • Read the Fine Print: Policies often have exclusions. It's essential to read and understand what's not covered to avoid surprises later.
    • Contact Details: Keep a physical and digital copy of your insurance details, including the policy number and emergency contact numbers.
    • Documentation: In case of any claim, proper documentation is crucial. This includes medical records, police reports (for thefts), and any correspondence or receipts related to your trip.

    While the Chitwan National Park Safari promises an unforgettable experience, it's always best to be prepared for the unexpected.
