Welcome to Jungle Base Camp at Bardia National park, the largest nature reserve in lowland Terai region of Nepal Bardia is widely acknowledged as the best place in Asia to see a fantastic range of wildlife including Gangetic freshwater dolphins, Royal Bengal Tigers, rhinos, wild elephants, crocodiles and over 400 species of birds. It is maybe the only place in the world where you can see freshwater dolphins and tigers, in their natural habitat, on the same day!



Our lodge Jungle Base Camp is in the remote Tharu village of Thakudbaba, formerly known as Thakudwara, on the border of the national park. It is a short distance from the park head quarters and an ideal place to base yourself for your activities or just to relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world.


Our lodge offers clean and quiet facilities within our spacious garden. We also have a place where we grow our own organic vegetables like tomatoes, cucumber, beans and chili peppers.

Jungle base camp offers a range of accommodation from budget to mid range, and has taken great care in the decoration of  the lodge, building each room in a fully traditional Tharu ethnic style.
