Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge

Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge

Bardia National Park
, Nepal

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.
