Tigerland Safari Resort
Opened in 2011, theTigerland Safari Resort has 32 air-conditioned villas, built on stilts and using sustainable natural materials. The guest rooms are tastefully decorated and have parquet floors, international-size twin or double beds, and spacious attached bathrooms with running hot and cold water. The thatched roofs of the villas merge beautifully within the jungle ambience as they are made from the abundant Siru grass.
Jungle safaris are organised on elephant back or by four wheel drive jeeps, as well as nature walks accompanied by well-trained naturalists and canoe trips on the Rapti River. Excursions are also arranged to various nearby locations of similar interest, like the Gharial Breeding centre where this rare reptile can be seen at close quarters or a visit to a Tharu village to gain a glimpse into the lives of the local Tharu tribe.
Both Nepalese and Western cuisine is served in the Hornbill's Nest, the resort's dining room. There is a well-stocked bar which is open until the last guest retires, and in the evening a range of complimentary snacks and nibbles are provided to go with evening drinks before dinner.
