Bardia National Park is the largest park in the lowland Terai of Nepal covering an area of 968 sq. km. The park situated in the mid far western Terai, east of the Karnali river was established to protect representative ecosystems and conserve tiger and its prey species. The park offers a variety of experiences in its vast intact wilderness. It is home to endangered animals such as the Royal Bengal tiger, wild elephant, Greater one-horned rhinoceros, swamp deer, and black duck. The other endangered species include gharial crocodile, marsh mugger and genetic dolphin. Rare birds found in the park are Bengal florican, lesser florican and sarus crane. More than 30 different mammals, over 400 species of birds and several species of snakes, lizard and fish have been recorded in the park. In addition to the resident species, several migratory birds visit the park. An elephant ride provides a different view of the park as one can go off the main trail.
What makes a visit to Bardia National Park particularly special is not just its large and unharmed habitat area and its isolated location, but also the presence here of one of the last known herds of wild Elephants in South Asia. The herd, numbering less than two dozen, roams these remote jungles in western Nepal.
