Jungle Safari Tour in Nepal
Jungle Safari is one of the most amazing trips in Nepal. Nepal is rich in wild life. The tropical jungles of the Terai preserve some of the best wildlife habitat in Asia. Out of the total geographical area of Nepal, 16% is occupied by national parks, wildlife reserves and conservation areas.
The southern lowlands of the country are known as ‘Terai’. This area is covered with dense tropical jungles and is home to thousands of birds and animal species, including some of the world's most exotic and endangered species. Due to increases in population, deforestation, and illegal poaching, the natural habitats of animals like One-Horned Rhino, Royal Bengal Tiger, Snow Leopard, Red Panda, Blue Bull, and the Gharial Crocodile are being destroyed, and leading these creatures to extinction.
The Terai region can get rather hot during summer months and temperate during winters. It is recommended that visitors carry cool clothes, good walking shoes, shady hat and sunscreen during the summer. The rainy season brings mosquitoes and leeches in the jungles. Mosquito repellant, anti-diarrhea tablets and anti-histamines can be handy during the summer and rainy months.
In Nepal, Chitwan and Bardia are the two National Parks on the menu. Chitwan is Nepal's most popular National Park offering excellent opportunity to see Royal Bengal Tigers, One horned Rhino, crocodile and thrilling wilderness experience into its deep and thick jungle.
