Bardia is situated near the southern border of the far north west corner of Nepal. Some 968 sq kms make it the largest wilderness reserve on the Terai lowlands that form a transition between the plains of northern India and the outer foothills of the Himalayas.

With the Himalayas to the north and twisting turns of the Karnali river and its tributaries to the west and south, the location of the park provides a huge protected area of diverse habitats for a multitude of endangered species.

Following years of unsettlement within the Nepal that left the park out on a limb, Bardia is now much more accessible again and many believe the park is now set to become one of the premier eco-tourism destinations in Asia.

Bardia is well placed for transport links, both to and from Kathamndu or India. We can assist with all your travel arrangements if you are travelling independently to Bardia. Pleasecontact us for further information.
