    Day 1 In Chitwan National Park

    April 27 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

    Hello everyone! Today we arrived in Chitwan National Park at around 12:30 and we were settled into our hotel by 1:00! Just a quick update, Chitwan is a national park which is home to lots of animals and is a very touristy place with lots of hotels! Today at 5:15 we started a walk through the village surrounding our hotel and lots of huge Asian elephants passed us! The guide showed us a cool cotton tree with cotton hanging of its branches! A storm had started and we could hear faint thunder and little drops of rain started to bounce off our heads! After about 25 minutes of walking we came to a large field with a little river flowing gracefully through the middle of the field! My parents apparently saw two alligator eyes poking out of the water but none of the kids saw them☹️! We kept walking and we saw huge clumps of poo which are actually rhino droppings and they supposedly come back to the same spot every time to do their business! After that we went to a fenced area where we saw 4 kinds of wild deer! Unfortunately the kids were too small so they couldn’t see very well☹️! By this time the storm had gotten bigger with lots of thunder and winds were getting stronger and the rain was falling faster and faster by the second! After that another tour guide started shouting at his group “Rhino Rhino Rhino!” We all ran and sure enough in another fenced off field three rhinos were grazing quietly on the tall grass! They had huge plates like armour and long horns and although we had already seen them in the Montpellier Zoo, it was nothing compared to seeing them in the wild! Suddenly their was a huge thunderclap and a zap of lightning from the sky! Rain started pouring in us and huge gusts of wind almost blew us over! We watched as the rhino’s walked back into the dense forest as cotton from the trees started falling of and flying through the air at high speed! Unfortunately we didn’t get a video but it was really cool😎😜!
    We managed to get all the way back to our hotel just as the storm got worse! We were just recovering from our final sprint back to the hotel and my dad went to check outside and he saw a man cleaning the pool with a long metal pole! Talk to you soon! Malcolm😎🤓😜😝😇😃🥳🤩🤯💩👽

    Chitwan National Park

    October 11, 2018 in Nepal ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    So .... After hearing that Nepal is the only place where the tiger numbers have doubled we set out to find at least 1 ........ No such luck, all we saw was some tiger paw prints 🤣

    We did see deer, birds, a squirrel, a monitor lizard, monkeys and wild boar.

    The jungle itself is thick and lush with the tallest trees I have ever seen, most in excess of 30m and elephant grass over 4m tall! In most places the vegitation is so thick, you wouldn't be able to see an elephant even if it was 3m away 🙄

    Coming from Africa, where we are spoilt with both many types of animals as well and large numbers of each, I wouldn't call this a safari, but rather a jungle drive 😆

    Chitwan Nationalpark

    January 3, 2018 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Nach einer unglaublich staubigen und ruckeligen Autofahrt von 4 Stunden durch den Terai erreichen wir den Chitwan Nationalpark. Die Region hier ist Heimat der Tharu - einem Volk, das mit und im Dschungel lebt. Aus einem bis heute nicht geklärten Grunde sind sie genetisch gegen Malaria resistent. Außerdem gelten sie als Kenner_innen der vielen medizinischen Pflanzen hier in diesem Landstrich.
    Bis in die 70ger Jahre war hier außerdem Jagdgebiet für reiche Inder, Nepalesen und Engländer. Sie haben hier reihenweise Tiger und Elefanten just for fun abknallt. Erst der vorletzte König Mahendra setzte dem ein Ende, indem er hier 1972 diesen Nationalpark von 900 qkm begründete.
    Das alles weiß ich von unserem sehr netten lokalen Guide Ganesh, der uns seit gestern hier herumführt.

    Gestern sind wir zum Sonnenuntergang zum Fluß spaziert, der uns mit unglaublich vielen Vögeln und einem ersten Krokodil erwartete. Heute früh dann im Boot leise durch den Nebel und später im Jeep durch den Dschungel. Dazu hatten wir noch Gelegemheit, eine Elefanten- und eine Krokodilaufzuchtstation zu besuchen. Unterwegs haben wir das Glück ein paar Rhinozerosse, viele Krokodile, Affen und jede Menge Vögel zu beobachten. Nur kalt war es im Jeep und so sind wir hier nach vier Stunden Fahrt darin ziemlich verfroren wieder angekommen.
    Nun wartet noch ein Kulturprogramm (draußen...brrrr) auf uns.

    Achja, und damit wir nicht zuviel der Ruhe hier genießen, sind hier ganze Horden von jungen Nepales_innen, die hier irgendeine Art Schulabschluss feiern... Offensichtlich ein Geschäftsmodell für die Nebensaison....😎.
