After about 7-months of hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Nepali Government has reopened the Bardiya National Park for tourism activities from October 17, 2020.
According to the Bardiya National Park Administration, tourism activities, including Jungle Drive and Jungle Walk, have been resumed in the park in the first phase. However, elephant safaris, rafting, and jungle camps have not been resumed yet.
“Only Jungle Walk and Jungle Drive have been opened for tourists in the first phase,” said Assistant Conservation Officer Maheshwar Prasad Niraula.
The Park Administration has advised the visitors to abide by the health protocols and measures set by the Nepali Government.
The tourists must wear face masks and apply hand sanitizers during their stay in the park. They should also maintain a mandatory physical distance.
Earlier, the Nepali Government has directed the tourism sector to resume tourism and hospitality activities by following the standard health protocols.
