Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve Camp is a combined tour which is a blend of historical and jungle safari in Nepal. Your memorable 4 days trip starts from Kathmandu Valley with choice of several options of transportation like flight, Deluxe Bus, Private car and local transportation. The tour to Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve includes Jungle safari, Overnight Camping at Buffer Zone, Walking and Cycling, Temple Tours, Birdwatching and Koshi Barrage Visits. 
 
Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is situated eastward in the plain lands of the country. The idea behind the establishment of this wildlife reserve was to protect rare wild water buffaloes. The reserve covers an area of 175 square km to the north with a kilometer long extending barrage that spans the Koshi River. The vast expanse of water offers wonderful wetlands that inhabit many species of birds and migrant birds. It is one of the best bird watching sanctuaries of Asia.

It is heaven for those who like to explore grassland, river lagoons, and woodlands on foot. Tourist can reach this area by three routes air, road, and water. Among three routes, air is most preferred one as it is 45 minutes flight to Biratnagar from Kathmandu. And, from Biratnagar, it takes around one and 1 hour drive to reach the camp. By road, it takes 12 to 14 hours from Kathmandu. The water route is a bit challenging. Rafting down for 8-10 days from Sun Koshi river is the very thrilling route to reach the destination and this is a least preferred route. You should know more before you go to Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve Camp.

    A Trip of a Lifetime

    Rating:

    Excellent is the only word to use! From the initial contact (via email) Binod and his team surpassed my expectations. He promised us the trip of a life time and that is what we got. In the past I have taken 'tailor made' tours that have been anything but!!! From the very first meeting Binod did everything within his power to make the trip run smoothly - whether it be regularly reviewing our plans and amending them to meet our needs, supplying us with a SIM card to make contact easy when we were touring, providing us with excellent, knowledgeable guides & drivers, changing money, being available 24/7 to answer questions - the list is endless. Nothing was too much trouble and any request was met with 'just give me a few minutes to see if that is possible' and Binod and his team always made it possible. We could only stay four days and Binod managed to plan a trip which gave us with everything on our wish list - the major sites in Kathmandu, white water rafting, flight over Everest, elephant safari, elephant bathing, jungle walk, kayaking and even some shopping...... We will visit again and we will use Binod and his team to give us our next adventure. I would recommend without any hesitation that anyone who is planning a trip to this beautiful country contact Binod. Thanks again Binod and hope to see you in October.
