Created in Nepal’s western Terai region, initially with the aim of protecting tigers and their prey, Bardia National Park is also one of the last strongholds for the greater one-horned rhinoceros, which were translocated here from Chitwan.

Along with Bengal tigers and rhinos (which are notoriously elusive), the park is home to endangered animals such as elephant, swamp deer, black buck, gharial crocodile, marsh mugger and Gangetic river dolphin. Bardia is also home to some of the most threatened bird species in Nepal – Bengal florican and Sarus crane being the notable examples.

This serene patch of land preserves swathes of sal forest and grassy plains that run along the banks of the Karnali River and continue as far as the Siwalik Hills. Bardia has remained largely undisturbed thus conserving its tranquil natural environment.
