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

Along with Bengal tigers and rhinos, the park is home to endangered animals such as elephant, swamp deer, black buck, gharial crocodile, marsh mugger and Gangetic river dolphin. Morning and late afternoon elephant rides are a great way to see the park and explore away from the main tracks.
