Wildlife Safaris in Chitwan National Park

Wildlife Safaris in Chitwan take place in the early morning and late afternoon. There are a variety of different experiences, so you can mix and match between jeep, boat and elephant-back. Expect to see one-horned rhino who live in the long grasslands that Chitwan is so famous for. Tiger and leopard are harder to see, as there is so much vegetation to conceal them. Gharial and Mugger crocodile is also widely seen, as too sloth bear. Prey is fairly plentiful too, so expect to see many deer (sambar, red muntjac, hog deer and chital). Gaur live to the south of the park, and there are countless moneys (rhesus and langurs). More unique that can be seen are flying squirrel, black-naped hare, hispid hare, Bengal fox, spotted lisangs, honey badger, striped hyena, wild dog, golden jackal, fishing cat and Indian civet. There are around 543 species of birds in Chitwan National Park including the critically endangered Bengal florican, lesser adjutant, swamp francolin, oriental darter and grey-crowned prinia.
