ABOUT THE PARK & SAFARI
CHITWAN NATIONAL PARK
The park is famous for its protection of One-horned Rhinoceros, Royal Bengal Tiger and Gharial Crocodile.
Chitwan is best known for sightings of the enormous one-horned Rhino. The rhino conservation is hailed as a success story, the population being brought back from the brink by timely and effective action. Due to its closeness to the Himalayas, the park also shelters winter and summer migrants along with its more than 600 native bird species. Indigenous and migrant species like Great Hornbill, Ruddy Shelduck, Pied Kingfisher and Red Headed Trogon can also be found. Dense forests, large grasslands and rivers mean that various species of birds from different habitats can make this region their home.
More than half of the parks vegetation is comprised of the stately Sal trees (Shorea Robusta). These dense thickets are interspersed with grasslands such as the gigantic elephant grass and marshy ox bow lakes where both the marsh mugger crocodile and the long slender snouted fish eater, the Gharial may be spotted. Stunning savannahs with more than 50 types of grasses, including 20 feet tall elephant grass are part of the landscape.
