A jeep safari in Chitwan
Arm yourself with a camera and binoculars on an exhilarating wildlife experience – spotting, tracking and viewing on a jeep safari. Immerse yourself in the natural terrain of Chitwan National Park, riding in an open top jeep through a dense forest of jungle. Keep your eyes open and attune your ears to slight rumblings and rustlings and be aware of ever so fast flashes of swishing tails.
Your foray into the Park takes you down knobbly, jutted trails with an abundance of wildlife hiding behind trees, slinking across the ground, lolling in a ravine, or doing a splendid job at playing camouflage. Home to at least 43 species of mammals, the ‘King of the Jungle’ here is the Bengal tiger. Leopards are most active on the peripheries of the Park, and even though they co-exist with tigers, being socially subordinate they are not common in prime tiger habitat. Should luck not be on your side in finding the rare Bengal tiger, your chances are higher of seeing the iconic Asiatic rhino, currently on the brink of extinction.
Traversing a large area, your early morning and late afternoon jeep safari will be accompanied by a trained naturalist who will help you spot wildlife and informatively explain whatever you come across. He will also be constantly checking the ground for any fresh animal tracks that may have passed by recently.
