Important information about Jungle Activities
※The Jungle Activities are managed by the lodge. According to their scheduling the order of activities might change. The wildlife reserve is divided into different Zones, so the areas you tour might change day to day.
※While we will make efforts to show the target species, the nature of wildlife safaris is that the observer visits only certain places for a short time, so there is no guarantee that you will see the specific species as mentioned in this outline. Please be aware of this point.
※This area is still new to catering to foreign tourists, so even though it is one of the top lodges in the area, please be aware that it will have fewer amenities as hotels in larger cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara.

●A Fascinating Ramsar Wetland in East Nepal, Visit Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve

Established in 1976, the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve was established to protect the endangered wild water buffalo, which was in serious decline at the time. The site was also popular among bird-watchers in Nepal and became the country's first Ramsar site in 1987. The largest river in Nepal, the Sapta Koshi River, attracts many birds from around the world to its wetlands. This is the only place where you can see the wild Endangered water buffalos year around.
