More remote and less visited than Chitwan, Bardia is a mixture of dry deciduous forest, vast stretches of open grassland and island-filled rivers, rich with acacia and silk cotton trees. Hiding in the tall grasses or ‘Machans’ on the edges of huge sal forests, wild elephants roam, one of which is reported to be the largest in Asia.
The Park is home to more than 250 species of birds, many of them waterbirds. Overhead, birds of prey like the fish eagle, crested serpent eagle and goshawk keep a keen eye on the plains for their next meal. The rivers that feed them are also home to the rare marsh mugger crocodile, the Gangetic dolphin and the mahseer game fish.
Sunrises here are something to behold. The sense of isolation from civilisation, and the feeling that these immense forests have been here since the dawn of time conspire to offer a true wilderness experience which can only take your breath away.You stay in luxury tented camps in the forest.
