A Host of Hotel-Sponsored Programmes:
a) Elephant Safari
With full security guaranteed, guests are taken in the morning and evening hours on
elephant backs through the park for watching animals in their natural habitat. One horned
Rhinoceros, Bears, different species of Deer, Tigers and Leopards are just a few of them.
Of course the guests have to be lucky to catch a casual glimpse of the latter two animals.
The trip takes about one hour and a half.
b) Special Bird Watching
This program gives the guests the opportunity of viewing most of the four hundred fifty
varieties of world famous birds. The chirping of all these birds especially in the early
morning hours is a rare musical treat.
c) Elephant Breeding Center Visit
It is believed that the Elephant Breeding Center outside the park here is one of the only
two in the world, another being in Sri-Lanka. Guests here can occasionally see the
love-making of the Elephants. The sight of the baby Elephant in the company of its
parents, is indeed a great pleasure.
d) Jungle Drive
This motor drive meant for those not relishing the foot walk takes the guests from the
park at Sauraha to the Park's headquarters at Kasara. The use of a motor transport does
not mar the fun in anyway.
This is carried out in the Rapti river flowing through the park. It provides the guests
with alternative opportunities of viewing the innumerable varieties of forest animals,
birds, marsh muggers and gharial crocodiles.
f) Jungle Treks
Thoroughly trained and experienced tourist guides take the guests for a few hours walk
through the jungle filled with many species of the wildlife. Guests not willing to return
to their camps on foot are provided with vehicular rides as well.
g) Cultural Tour
This tour takes the guests through Tharu community village around the park. The guests are
also entertained through different Tharu related cultural programs, the stick dance being
quite popular among them.
