On The Tiger Trail

Together with the adjacent 550 sq km Banke National Park, Bardia National Park’s 968 sq km now forms one of the largest protected tiger habitats in the world, with estimated 50-puls tigers in Bardia alone. While this is less than Chitwan, you probably stand a much better chance of seeing one here if you put in the hours at one of the ‘hotspots’ for tiger sightings: Tinkuni (three corners), Kingfisher, and the balcony. All the guides know these places well and you will certainly be taken to them on a safari. Don’t be surprised to find a large troop of tiger-spotters already in position when you arrive.

Some people spend the entire day sitting and waiting (and whispering) with a packed lunch for that elusive glimpse. The best time of the year to see the tiger is February to May and the best tactic is to sit and wait at one of the hotspots. Don’t forget to bring binoculars or a telephoto lens for your camera, and maybe a book to while away the hours. Raft trips may also stop at one or more hotspots en route, although this limits your time at them.
