Open: Koshi Tappu Wildlife Camp is open from September to May and closed during June to August, the monsoon season. It first opened in 1993.
Location: The camp is in Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve in the terai of eastern Nepal. The nearest airport is Biratnagar, just under 2 hours’ drive from the camp.
Rooms: There are 12 safari-style tents, simply furnished, each with 2 twin beds. Showers, toilets and wash basins are in a separate building about 30 metres away.
Activities: You’ll be able to take guided walks in the morning and evening by the Koshi River, and go rafting, both great ways of observing animals and birds. A walk to the local village offers the chance to experience life in Koshi Tappu.
Facilities: The restaurant is at the centre of the camp, in a large thatch-roofed structure. It serves Nepali and international meals. There’s also a bar on site. There is a pond in the grounds, which attracts a variety of birds including kingfishers and flycatchers. There is no electricity and light is provided by kerosene lamps and candles after dark, though the camp does have a generator.
Dining: Meals are eaten at individual tables in the restaurant, or communally outside in the gardens.
Children: Children of all ages are welcome.
Health: This is a malarial area.
Communication: There is no internet access.
