What people are saying about Kathmandu

Wonderful experience. Organization was perfect. Our friend "Nawa" informed us very well, the bus ride there and back, pick up from the hotel was well organized by him. The safari itself, just as described. A great experience. Crocodiles, rhinos, bears, deer and an amazing world of birds awaited us. Our guide took a lot of time for us, he was able to answer all of what we felt like 1000 questions. The bus ride is very long (about 7 hours), but also very varied, there is a lot to see, no problem for us. The hotel could be better, the grounds are great, rooms and food, well, but it's fine for 2 nights. The actual experience counts more, was more important for us. We would do this activity again anytime.

This was an amazing experience. Our guide, Nabin, was so knowledgeable and friendly and had some amazing stories to tell. We saw rhinos, elephants, crocodiles, peacocks, monkeys, a boar, a porcupine, and we might’ve even caught a glimpse of a bear. Everyone at the hotel, Safari Club, was so friendly and the food was delicious. The pool was refreshing after hot days. My favorite part was the jungle walk - it was so fun to be going through the jungle trying to search out animals. The entire experience was incredible and I recommend it to everyone. I only wish we could have stayed longer to have Nabin take us on a full day jungle walk!

Super Safari, we took the bus to Chitwan Nawa (the organizer) accompanied us to this one. Once we got to Chitwan at the exit of the bus we had a taxi from the hotel waiting for us, the hotel was just sublime with swimming pool and the staff at the top no complaints the same we ate super well all the meals were full and delicious. The canoe is actually a boat ride where you can observe crocodiles and different birds. The Safari lasted well 4 hours we were lucky to see a tiger. We highly recommend this activity! Another big thank you to the various guides.

A great time with many impressions, landscapes, good food, an excellent guide Ramesh ... if only the rubbish were not everywhere. I had to get used to that. I was a solo traveler and would not want to miss this experience

Had a very experienced guide who spoke good English and looked after me extremely well. Would definitely recommend, especially if this your first time trekking in Nepal.
