Chitwan safaris are famous for its larger endangered wildlife, but the park is also a rare treat for birders.
Chitwan is one of its few known breeding spots of the globally threatened Indian Spotted Eagle. Meantime, 15 of 23 of Nepal's threatened birds species has been found in Chitwan, most of them wetland birds like the Kashmir Flycatcher. For a truly immersive birding experience, request a morning bicycle ride to the wetlands for a bird watching breakfast, or take an extended day safari with a riverside lunch deep in the jungle. For an evening jaunt, head out on a sundowner that starts with a canoe ride and ends with sunset drinks, snacks and birdsong on the banks of the Rapti river.
