              Best Season

              The best times to visit Bardia National Park are during the dry season, spanning from October to March. This period offers optimal conditions for wildlife viewing as the vegetation thins out and animals congregate around water sources, making them easier to spot during safaris. The moderate temperatures, ranging from warm to cool, create comfortable conditions for exploring the park's diverse ecosystems. Additionally, the months of October and November showcase the post-monsoon lushness, adding a vibrant green backdrop to the landscape. Travelers should be mindful of the warmer temperatures during April and May, the pre-monsoon months. Conversely, while the monsoon season, typically from June to September, brings lush greenery, it may also limit accessibility and wildlife sightings due to dense vegetation and increased water levels. Therefore, planning a visit between October and March ensures an ideal balance between favorable weather conditions and the opportunity to witness Bardia National Park's incredible biodiversity.
