Jungle Safari in Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve

Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is situated on the flood plains of the Sapta-Koshi River in Eastern Nepal. Established in 1976 with an area of 175 sq.km. covering the reserve can drive from Kathmandu about 10 hrs. or 40 minutes fly to Biratnagar and 30 minutes drive resort.

The reserve is a wetland of international significance. In 1987, it was declared a Ramsar site. It is home to more than 280 bird species including 20 duck species, 2 species of ibises, many storks, egrets and herons. The endangered swamp partridge and Bengal florican are found here. The Koshi Barge is an extremely important resting-place for migratory birds.

The last surviving population of wild buffalo or arna is found here. The reserve is also home to many types of mammals such as hog deer, spotted deer, wild boar and blue bull. The endangered Gharial crocodile and Gangetic dolphin have been recorded in the Koshi River.

The vegetation mainly includes tall khar-pater grasslands with a few patches of khair-sissoo scrub forest and deciduous mixed riverine forest.

During the monsoon, the reserve is flooded with depths ranging from 10 to 300 cm. From season to season the Sapta-Koshi River changes its course.

This reserve is of course, the least explored but also can be combined to the trip to India, which enhances the journey and allows you to enjoy nature. During the summer the safari resorts remain closed and rest of the season program will continue.
