Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge

Bardia National Park


Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge helped put Bardia National Park on the wildlife map many years ago and today continues to offer the same warm Nepalese hospitality in a beautiful setting, nature’s home to its array of creatures great and small. The lodge embraces a strong local identity in its design, adopting traditional building techniques and drawing inspiration from the local Tharu culture. Getting to observe and know the resident domesticated elephants - their daily routine and distinct personalities - and engaging with their mahouts is an experience not to be missed.
