After check-in and settling into your spacious accommodations, our guests at Kasara will enjoy a guided visit to a nearby village to learn about the life and traditions of the Tharu, an indigenous people who have long lived in the southern foothills of the Himalayas.
Guests at Tiger Tops Tharu will have the afternoon free to explore the idyllic natural setting of our luxury lodge. You might also take a dip in the pool before afternoon tea is served. Later, you can stroll down to the banks of the Narayani River to enjoy a sun downer cocktail before dinner is served.
Depending upon arrival time, guests at the Taj Meghauli Serai might begin their exploration this afternoon with a guided land or river safari on land or river to go in search of the wildlife.
Day 2 – On Safari in Chitwan National Park
Encompassing dense forests and rippling grassland, Chitwan National Park is one of the last refuges of the highly-endangered one-horned Indian rhino. In addition, there are healthy populations of deer, monkey, leopard and of course the elusive Royal Bengal tiger. In its pristine rivers and marshland, the Park is also home to diverse aquatic species including the fish-eating Gharial crocodile and the fierce Marsh Mugger crocodile; an indigenous species that can grow up to 16 feet or more in length!
Today you’ll enjoy morning and afternoon safari adventures by land and water – venturing into the deeper reaches of the National Park in a comfortable 4x4 jeep and also in a traditional wooden canoe. Accompanied by our expert safari guides - carefully selected for their deep knowledge, unmatched experience and sharp eyes - you’ll learn much about the unique eco-systems of Chitwan as you set out in search of the many land and marine species that inhabit the Park.
