Elephant Safari at Banke National Park is one of the best ways to spot wildlife from up close. Because the elephants can come close to other animals without them noticing that there are people on the elephant’s back, you can come up to 1 meter from other animals.
During the trip, you are never alone. The rider sits in the front and next to him, you and other tourists. On the back of an elephant, you can get very close to the wildlife. Beware that you have to be very quiet to do so! One sound and you will scare off the tigers, rhinos, deer, or one of the other animals.
Banke National Park (BaNP) was established as the 10th National Park of Nepal on the 12th of July 2010. The Park is linked with a transboundary Landscape that joins Suhelwa Wildlife Sanctuary in India through national and community forests towards the south. It joins with Bardia National Park (BaNP) towards the west which further links with Katerniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary in India via the Khata corridor, national forest, and community forests. It is Nepal’s tenth national park after its recognition as a “Gift to the Earth”. The protected area covers an area of 550 km² with most parts falling on the Churia range.
