Koshi Tappu Wildlife Camp, 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.
The Camp is staffed with local naturalists and bird specialists. It has 12 large deluxe safari tents equipped with modern facilities. Its restaurant serves Nepalese and international cuisine and has a fully stocked bar.
Koshi Tappu Wildlife Camp offers multiple ways of viewing wildlife. Trained local naturalists lead these ways.
Morning / Evening Jungle Walk
The Koshi River flows through part of the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve. The jungle along the belts of this river is rich in birds and other animals. The river lagoons and wetlands draw deer and water buffaloes as well as birds.
Gentle Wildlife Rafting
Rafting down the Koshi River is another way of exploring the reserve. View water birds or animals attending to their daily needs. Kingfishers dive into the river looking for food, marsh muggers or Ghariyal crocodiles sunbathe. Even rare Wild Buffaloes and Gangetic River Dolphins can be spotted.
Viewing life in the reserve on foot is equally interesting. Tharus live here. They, the early inhabitants of the region, have their unique way of living. It is untouched by the western world. Their beautifully decorated homes and cultural style are delightful. With the help of Koshi Tappu Wildlife Camp, this Tharu village is plastic-free. It is one of the few environmentally aware and clean villages in the country.
