Rhino Lodge Bardia is your ideal place for safari accommodation !!

Gentle Rafting is offered in Bardia National Park and it provides for a thrilling and fun experience on a large and steady rubber boat to explore the park and its wild animals. During the boat safari trip, which lasts all day, your guide will help you to spot many types of birds and other wildlife along the river bank. In the boat safari we can often see Ganges River Dolphins near our boat. We have combined our boat safari with a game drive to explore the park and its wild animals, in more detail. The British Princes Henry, Charles, David, and "HARRY" visited Bardia National park on the 21st of March 2019 and went rafting down the Karnali River and did a 30 minute Jungle walk to understand the movements of tigers which were photographed on camera traps in the jungle .
