Taj Safaris, the creators of India’s first luxury wildlife travel circuit in Madhya Pradesh, today announced the opening of its first lodge outside India: Meghauli Serai at UNESCO World Heritage listed Chitwan National Park, Nepal.
In a land of snow peaks and sherpas, yaks and yetis, monasteries and mantras, where ancient temples, shrines, palaces and monuments offer a glimpse into the past, Chitwan National Park is a real jewel. Its dramatic landscapes of dense Sal groves, thick grasslands and meandering water bodies, coupled with the breathtaking wildlife, make it one of the most sought after destinations in Nepal. From its prime position nestled on the banks of the Rapti river, Meghauli Serai offers spectacular views of the park across the river from its 30 rooms and suites.
Chitwan National Park is home to an astounding 550 native bird species, including the Great Hornbill, Ruddy Shelduck and Pied Kingfisher, and approximately 68 species of mammals. The majestic Royal Bengal tiger, leopards, wild dogs and sloth bears are in abundance in this natural paradise, but the park’s main attraction is the Greater One-horned Rhinoceros. With its armour-like body plates and a solitary horn, the rhino is the Park’s local celebrity.
Rohit Khosla, Sr. Vice President – Operations, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces said: “We are delighted to extend the legendary Taj hospitality to guests in Nepal. The Taj group has a pioneering reputation for creating destinations and we are very proud to present the latest Taj Safaris’ Meghauli Serai Jungle Lodge at Chitwan National Park. We are committed to adding value to the community and the region.”
