Apr 24, 2014 - Back to Kathmandu

Not too much happened that day, had a late afternoon flight with Buddha Air, so I just hung out with the camp dog (you can't have camp without a dog) and I mean "hung", it was a good tiger party the night before, many beers were drunk. By the way...the dog was a stray that the local boys painted strips on, so we called him tigger. After long wait at airport for a short flight I finally made it back to my home in Kathmandu, the Thamel Eco Hotel. Delicious bowl of asparagus soup then off to bad for another 5:30 wake up call for another flight...

Apr 23, 2014 - Bardia park-safari-day 3

Best day yet, with the exception of the 5:30 wake up call. Today we take a jeep, which was okay with me because we walked for miles & miles yesterday. Morning didn't start off too good, only seen monkeys, many birds, deers, and a few wild boars. After lunch we decided to go back to where we seen the rhino yesterday.

Ganesh was our main guide but he had younger guy learning the ropes (forget his name). Elephant trek was pretty cool, but wouldn't do it again, the bar that you lean against is very hard on your back and all the animals run away from the elephant (makes too much noise). By foot was far best, but a little spooky, as a tiger or leapard could be in the trees and we...

Apr 21, 2014 - Bardia park-safari-day 1

Woke up super early today to catch 1 hour flight to the southeast part of Nepal, to Bardia National Park. After flight, long drive to the Forest Hideaway Hotel (more of a campsite setting) the driver who picked me up took me to a elephant breeding farm. Many elephants are domesticated here, actually while here one of the owners was killed by his elephant. It was an accident, I don't think the elephant knew how strong she was. I had opportunity to feed 15 month old elephant and she almost knocked me off my feet trying to get a banana. Don't...
