Koshi Tappu Jungle Safari, set up in 1993, was the first luxury camp in this wildlife Reserve. It was set up primarily for bird watchers. The camp is ideal for all nature lovers seeking peace within a paradise of nature. Koshi Tappu safari covers the vast expanse of the Koshi River with its blue waters and lush jungle areas on both sides. It’s considered the major attraction of the safari. The forest is the homeland of wild buffaloes, hog deer, wild boar, spotted deer, blue bell, and jackals. The vegetation of this area is mainly tall Khar-pater grassland with dew patches of Khair-sissoo scrub forest and deciduous mixed river line jungle.
You can explore the forest of Koshi Tappu jungle safari riding on an elephant’s back. Here you will see the hattisar (elephant stable) where elephants breed regularly and which is one of few such facilities in Asia. During the Koshi Tappu Safari at dusk and dawn time, you will see many varieties of birds and animals sitting along the river. The best place to watch the bird species is the Barrage, downstream of the river.
