Bardia National Park

Bardia National Park covers 968 sq. km areas in the lowland Terai region of Nepal. Bardia National Park is situated in the western Terai of Nepal and was established for protecting the representative ecosystems and conserving the habitat of the tiger and its prey species. Initially, it was established as Karnali Wildlife Reserve with a small area by shifting 1500 households of Babai Valley. The relocation of households was made for the flourishment of reserves, vegetation, and wildlife. Later, it was named Bardia Wildlife Reserve and upgraded to Bardia National Park in 1988.

Then, one-horned rhinoceros were relocated from Chitwan National Park to Bardia National Park. The area of 327 sq km is declared as a buffer zone and jointly managed by the park and local communities. Bardia National Park is circumscribed by the Karnali river in the west and Churia runs in the north and the Babai river streams directly through.

Babai Valley of Bardia National Park

Babai valley is a pristine valley characterized by rich biodiversity with wooded grassland and riverine forest. Babai valley is extended from Parewa Odar to Chepang Bridge which was added to the park in 1984. The translocated One-horned rhinoceros from Chitwan National Park were introduced to Babi valley.

Babai valley was the habitat of local people and was shifted to create Bardia National Park. Around 1500 households residing at Babai Valley were shifted and vacated to nurture vegetation and wildlife. The contribution of the locals of Babai Valley is highly appreciable to promoting Bardia National Park and the conservation of nature.

Flora and Fauna of Bardia National Park

Bardia National Park offers vast wilderness and a diversity of wildlife, vegetation, and a balance of the ecosystem. 70% of forests are covered with sal trees, a mixture of grassland and riverine forest. The East part of Bardia National Park provides luxurious forests as a good habitat and corridor for several wildlife species. Karnali river and Babai river flowing through Bardia National Park are the home of the endangered gharial crocodile, marsh mugger, and Gangetic dolphin. The riverine forest along the shore is the prime habitat for birds like herons, egrets, black-necked storks, and little pratincole.

Bardia National Park is home to endangered animals such as Royal Bengal Tiger, wild elephant, one-horned rhinoceros, swamp deer, and blackbuck as well as endangered birds such as Bengal florican, lesser florican, and Sarus crane. More than 30 mammals, over 230 species of bird, and several species of snakes, lizards,s, and fish have been recorded in Bardia National Park. Every year several migratory birds visit the park.

Best Season for Bardia National Park Jungle Safari

Usually, Bardia National Park faces three distinct seasons: winter, summer, and monsoon.

During summer (April - June), the area is extensively hot with temperatures reaching up to 45 degrees Celsius. However, the migration of birds usually peaks during March. The beginning of summer showcases the growth and blossom of vegetation and flora of the area.

Monsoon starts from July until September with heavy and frequent rainfall resulting in floods in the river. It has high humidity along with quite high temperatures. The rain makes the trails and areas wet and creates difficulty to traverse and explore the area. Otherwise, Monsoon nourishes the vegetation of Bardia National Park to grow wild, huge, and dense. On a sunny day, you can enjoy the lush jungle and area colored with greeneries and flowers.

From October to April, Bardia National Park experiences the winter season with clear skies, and dry weather, and nights are cool and pleasant. The weather is favorable to tour around and have a jungle safari due to its mild warmness and dryness. Many migratory birds can also be seen.

You can choose to have a Bardia National Park jungle safari as per your weather preferences and interest in flora and fauna.
