    Day 2: Embark on a safari to Dudhwa National Park. The rest of the day is at leisure or choose from an optional afternoon safari to Kishanpur Wildlife Sanctuary or combine your safari with a visit to Tanda village.

    Wake up early for an exciting day. Your naturalist will meet you as you embark on your first jungle safari in the Terai region. Dudhwa National Park lies amid the warm, subtropical forests and provides a fascinating blend of wildlife and flora. Start your drive at dawn to catch the first rays of the sun to enter the national park.

    Much of the thrill of any safari experience comes from the sheer unpredictability of the jungle. This is an adventure like never before! The park's thick sal forests, extensive grasslands and wet marshes, harbour a wide range of wildlife, but it's what you may encounter on your wild sojourn that will keep you on the edge of your seats. Although elusive, sighting of the Royal Bengal tiger, leopard, the swamp deer and fishing cat is not entirely uncommon. Once the day brightens, you will set out atop an elephant to explore the thick grasslands in search of the regal one-horned rhinoceros, which was first re-introduced in the park, under the rhinoceros conservation programme, in exchange of elephants from Nepal.

    Later continue your search at the many water holes in the marshlands, from watchtowers. Rich in aquatic life, they are also critical breeding grounds for the Indian otters in the wild.

    Dudhwa's birds in particular, are a delight for any avid birdwatcher. Our expert naturalist will help you spot these magnificent birds while talking to you about their behaviour and ecology. Greater hornbills, grey-headed fish eagles, spot-bellied eagle owls, great slaty woodpecker, barbets and many more make their dramatic entry, as you traverse these woodlands. The presence of some rare species like the Bengal florican will leave you intoxicated with the contagious passion of your guide, as you fret and search for them. Conclude your trip taking a moment to reflect on the highlights of your safari, before returning to the lodge via the iconic Satiana range, the largest grassland in the area.

    Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast upon return to the lodge.

    Spend the afternoon at leisure. Explore the sprawling farmlands on cycle or enjoy a fascinating walk into Sathiyana Forest or trail along the water creeks hidden in the sugarcane fields.

    A day in the life of the Tharu Tribe

    Duration: Half Day

    Begin your day with a 40-kilometre drive to a small village sitting strategically on the periphery of the Indo-Nepal border - a rustic hamlet belonging to the dominant tribe of the Terai region. For centuries the Tharu have lived closely with the jungle and their traditions reflect their intimate relationship with the natural world.


    Though their main occupation is farming, the colourful tribal community is renowned for their folk roots in music and dance, expert craftsmanship and their impeccable hunting skills. The Tharu excel at the art of catching and training wild elephants and making the best mahouts. Meet your local host for the day, who has previously served as an apprentice to the grand old man of Terai, renowned Indian naturalist Billy Arjan Singh. Spend the day in his intricately designed traditional home, with a captivating introduction to the culture and customs of this prolific community. Witness the warm hospitality of these people as you savour delicious Tharu cuisine after a cooking demonstration given by the ladies of the house.

    Afterwards, you will have an exclusive interaction session with the 'dancing boys' - the popular custom of young boys being trained in the art of dance and music, dressed as women, in colourful costumes. Continue with a visit to a local women's association that is dedicated to the cause of employment and welfare to countless Tharu women. Enjoy a cup of tea while interacting with the ladies. Later, stroll through colourful local markets where you can see fresh produce being sold, alongside indigenous jewellery and other goods.

    Duration: Half Day

    Learn about the history of Dudhwa National Park, which is not only a haven for tigers but also many other species which are on the brink of extinction elsewhere.
