We recommend this place although we were told everywhere that August is not the best time to come and discover the treasures of Chitwan Jungle. Despite of the high grass that didn't let us spot more animals, we really enjoyed the Elephant safari and also...More

The national park was lovely, we were lucky enough to see 1 rhino. A boat ride down the river is a must. I do feel many of the locals are far behind the times with elephant welfare, I do understand that this is the way...More

This is huge park famous for its rhinos. It is preferable to take the jeep safari which is of almost 3 hours duration.

The Jungle Safari Lodge put together a good package of accommodation and tours. Including the Jeep safari, river tour, elephant rides and cultural show.

One thing I forgot to mention about getting to Chitwan is that I very strongly recommend flying. We took a bus to arrive and our 5-6 hour journey ended up taking 12 hours. We were lucky, as we met one group of people stuck on the road for 33 hours! We couldn't risk missing our departure flight back to our home country so we decided to fly from Chitwan to Khatmandu and this was worlds better. From wheels up to wheels down was 18 minutes! The process of paying for the tickets was a bit tricky since the card reader at the airport was not working so we had to walk around until we found the the off-site building where I could pay, but it was so worth the extra money to fly and have the rest of the day in Khatmandu. There is no amount of money that could get me to take the drive from Khatmandu to Chitwan again in the future, none.
