JUNGLE

Chitwan and Bardia National Parks are two of the most preserved jungle areas in Nepal. Renowned for our jungle conservation and elephant safaris, Tiger Tops is synonymous with sustainable jungle tours, operating lodges at both of these sites. Nothing quite beats the exhilaration of a raw encounter with jungle wildlife. Observe tigers, rhinos, elephants, crocodiles, leopards and deer all in their natural habitat on a Tiger Tops guided jungle safari.

Boating

A boating expedition down the Narayani River can be both a soothing and exhilarating experience. Cruising on the wide expanse of the river, pockets of rapids propel the boats along, as gentle waves lap at the sides. Sitting inside a Tiger Tops hand-carved boat, keep your eyes peeled for a variety of birdlife and wildlife. Top of the list are the endangered fish-eating Gharial crocodile and its more sinister relative, the Marsh-Muggger. With its brown, earthen coloured scales cleverly camouflaged on the banks, the Marsh-Mugger is both a challenge and a treat to spot. As the Narayani River is the natural border between the National park and the surround villages, boating trips will also give guests a glimpse into village life. Watch local fisherman as they skillfully go about their daily work, or find children play on the banks above.
