Though there’s some controversy regarding the use of elephants for safaris in places like Chitwan National Park, we weren’t really a part of that dialogue when we visited Nepal. Going by elephant was the only option for us in terms of transportation into certain parts of the park. We watched the elephants and the people who cared for them walking along the rivers each morning and our elephant-experience in Nepal was overall extremely positive.
We didn’t see any tigers or rhinoceros on our Chitwan National Park safari but we did get to see the jungly areas of the park. And we got to ride an elephant through a flooded river to do it.
