Nepal Safari Special Adventure Itinerary Detail:
Day 2: Dawn comes early to Chitwan. The early morning is the best time to observe elusive bird and animal species and their morning activity at the waterways. You'll soon be ready for a hearty breakfast on your return while you take-in the remarkably lush, verdant panorama. After breakfast, you'll slip into a dugout canoe for a silent two mile glide along the river to Kasara, the park center. Stopping to enjoy the park headquarters, you can begin a guided nature walk accompanied by a trained park naturalist. Later, return to the lodge for lunch and a rest. Depending on the season, the afternoon may lead you to a demonstration of elephant bathing or a visit to an ethnic Tharu village. Back at the lodge, dinner will be a welcome sight before you settle in for a peaceful night. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
Day 3: It's another early rise this morning! Our day starts early as we head out for todays exploration. Today we take breakfast 'to go' or 'takeaway' (breakfast boxes) as we leave by jeep headed to the banks of the Rapti River. You'll cross streams and traverse meadows before being met by your elephants. Back on your perch, you'll move effortlessly through deep green vegetation to reach the Elephant Breeding Center. Nepal has been very proactive to protect its wildlife and help fight poaching. Today, Nepal experiences very little poaching.
Day 4: The stillness of early morning finds us accompanied by our local guide for a favorite local activity — bird watching! There are hundreds of bird species found in this lush area and they are a bountiful target for your binoculars. Today we depart after breakfast to return to Kathmandu, signaling the close to this jungle adventure. You'll take with you some unforgettable memories and photographs of this unique and bountiful refuge in the center of Nepal. How wonderful it would be to spend more time — and you can! (Breakfast)
