Bardia National Park is one of the largest and finest wildlife reserves in Nepal. It lies near the southern border in the far northwest region of Nepal. It covers an area of around 968 sq. km. lying on the low land of Terai. This park has been a haven for various rare species of animals and birds. The national park forms a transition between the plains of India and the outer foothills of the Himalayas. The vegetation in the national park varies from lush, dense forests to grasslands, woodlands, and riverine. Such vegetation make a favorable home to a diverse range of faunas found in various kinds of vegetation.

Bardia National Park is among the less explored wildlife sanctuaries. Here, wilderness and challenges are found abundantly. The national park, has now been turned into a wildlife reserve, which was once a hunting reserve. It is an unspoiled and untouched habitat of wildlife. It holds the pride of treasuring the largest population of Bengal tigers in Nepal. Additionally, it provides shelter to some endangered species of animals i.e. Tiger, Rhinoceros, Gharial crocodile, Swamp deer, Wild elephant, Bengal florican, Gangetic dolphin, Sarus crane, etc. Apart from wildlife, it is home to over 350 species of beautiful birds.

The rarest animal, the Himalayan Thar, the only living member of the genus Hemi Tragus was recorded as seen in this reserve. Besides, a distant cousin of a wild goat, confirmed as an extinct animal was spotted here. This shows that how well preserved this reserve is. There might still be many unique species of animals living in this national park, and who knows, you might be the lucky one to spot them?
