Safari in Nepal is one of the most amazing trips in Nepal, as it is a country of exceptional biodiversity and a beautiful natural environment due to three different belts i.e Mountains, Hills and Plain (Terai in Nepali). The tropical jungles of the Terai preserve some of the best wildlife habitat in the subcontinent, if not the world. Nepal has 12 national parks, 1 wildlife reserve and 6 conservation areas, occupying 22.93 percent of its total geographical area. Nepal offers scenic views of some of the rarest and most endangered wild-lives on earth in their natural habitats like Alpine forest, Savanna, Tropical forest and Grasslands. Nepal has 185 species of mammals in various parts of the country. Nepal has more than 850 recorded species of birds. This is 8% of all birds in the world. Amazingly, half of these birds can be seen in and around the Kathmandu valley alone. Spiny blabber is only found in Nepal which was thought to be extinct.
Plain (Terai region) consist of exotic wildlife such as Bengal Tigers, Greater One-horned Rhinos, Asiatic Elephants, Sloth bears, Water Buffaloes, Leopards, Monkeys & Gharials. In Narayani and Karnali rivers, Ganges dolphins can be found. Hills consist of wildlife like Red Pandas, Clouded Leopards & Himalayan Black bears. Mountains have one of the most elusive cats of all, Snow Leopards, and herbivores like Blue sheep, Musk deer & Himalayan Tahr.
Nepal has achieved zero poaching for Tigers, Rhinos and Elephants in several years, demonstrating its seriousness to protect the wildlife. For those who wish to experience the natural safari at its best there is no better place than Nepal.
