• Bardia
    A raft on the rivers that flow through Bardia is the best seat in the house. Going with the flow was never lovelier. On a rafting trip the river becomes the guide, taking you through the heart of the jungle. No sputtering engine, no grumpy elephant, no need to walk or wait—just silence, an occasional musical lapping of the oar, and the happy abandon of handing control over to the river. And the river doesn’t disappoint. You can catch glimpses of colorful kingfishers and meditative figures of eagles scouring for prey and count crocodiles and gharials on the banks.  If you are lucky, you will see the shiny coat of the Smooth-coated Otter, or better still, that of a Ganges river dolphin.
