If you are lucky, tigers, elephants, rhinoceroses, deers, monkeys, crocodiles and birds may show up. Don’t be afraid, all these animals are scared by people and none of them has human being on its menu.
Nepal is one of few countries to allow walking safaris on tiger territory. This system exists since more than 20 years and no tourist has ever been put in danger. Your jungle guides will keep away from you all potential dangerous situations.
Elephant Back Safari

In Nepal all domestic elephants are born in captivity and are not trained with the brutal « breaking » method you may see in other countries.
There are no rapids on the holy river Karnali and its small streams. You will jump on our rubber raft and go down the river with our experienced boat dirver. On the boat, we will see beautiful landscapes and maybe some animals drinking. This excusrion is especially good for birds. If you are very lucky you may see the rare and endangered Ganga dolphin.
The jeep is great to explore the geography of the national park, witness the different kinds of habitats and explore remote areas that you can’t reach with other safaris.
