Our Lodges


An opportunity to reconnect with nature

The Tiger Tops lodges are situated in the lowland Terai region of Nepal, on the edge of the country's premier wildlife habitats. Our proximity to the national parks provides unforgettable safari experiences with our experienced naturalist teams. All our lodges are maintained to the highest standard of environmentally-friendly practices and offer beautiful and comfortable surroundings for our guests.

Tharu Lodge

Tiger Tops Tharu Lodge is located on the boundary of Chitwan National Park, away from the busy areas of the park. At Tharu Lodge we offer a quiet but captivating wilderness retreat, fused with local cultural encounters.

Karnali Lodge

Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge is located on the periphery of Bardia National Park. An area of extraordinary beauty and abundant wildlife, a visit to Karnali Lodge is a journey of off-the-beaten path adventure.
All of our lodges adhere to rigorous environmental policies aimed at reducing energy, waste and pollutants.


  • "Magical stay in Chitwan National Park"

    Loved my stay. The food was delicious, the communal vibe was lovely and they catered to my food allergies without any fuss. The safari tent was luxurious and the elephants are well looked after as is the whole venue. Not a plastic bottle or single use paper towel in sight which I adored.
  • "The experience of a lifetime "

    I had a truly wonderful stay! The staffs were warm and friendly and our guide on the safaris communicated loads about the wildlife of the area. I was lucky enough to see a tiger, several rhinos, monkeys and deer. I shall definitely be back to try to see a sloth bear! I spent a lot of time with the elephants and it was heart-warming to see how well taken care of they are. The elephant trek and elephant sandwich making (elephant camp visit) is an absolute must! I also really enjoyed seeing the organic farm where food is grown for the lodge. I had such a great time and I can't wait to go again!
  • "Excellent 3 Day Get-Away"

    This place is a gem!!! Excellent service, comfortable rooms and excellent staff. My wife and I spent 3 nights here after I did the Everest Base Camp trek. The room was extremely comfortable and well laid out. Our naturalist who guided us in the Bardiya National Park was extremely knowledgeable and worked so hard to give us an experience of a lifetime. The cuisine was excellent and the staff so accommodating. Excellent service all around and will definitely return in the future
  • "An authentic natural experience"

    It’s difficult to capture the Tiger Tops experience in a few mere words, on so many different levels an incredibly unique experience from the elegance of elephants to warmth of geniue heartfelt hospitality. You sense that Tiger Tops are really leading the way in terms of sustainable nature based tourism with importantly a real connection with the local villagers. There support to the local school typifies this connection. Coming from an Australian national parks background, Jack and his team are to be commended. Brilliant. An outstanding experience
  • "Absolutely the best lodge in the world!"

    We spent New Years 2020 with family and friends @ Tiger Tops Karnali, and it was a trip never to forget. From the jeep safaris to the excellent service, there is no comparison to any other lodge in Nepal, and perhaps the world (I've been to several around the globe). Starting out as tiger-hunting camp founded by two Texans, this camp has grown into anti an eco-friendly place that strives to preserve nature by any means possible - including no-elephant riding and just a little carbon footprint. The guides are knowledgable, speak perfect English, and always carry a bird book. They know the forest well, and excursions into the park are just magical. Walks outside the camp are just as interesting, as an authentic Tharu village is just outside the gate. I've been living in Nepal for 20 years now (been all over the place on motorbike) and this is by far my favorite place to stop.
  • "A lifelong dream come true"

    I've dreamed about coming to Chitwan National Park since I first heard about it over 30 years ago, and following Tiger Tops leading the way in care and protection for elephants within the tourist industry I knew there was nowhere else to stay! The serene atmosphere, attentive and professional staff, delicious food, and unique activities exceeded all my high hopes and expectations. Best of all was walking with elephants and watching them bathe in the river at sunset, learning to make their snacks from the mahouts and even being allowed to feed them, and going on a jeep safari where we saw lots of birds and animals in their natural environment - just magical! Our guide throughout everything was naturalist Puspa who was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great fun to be with. We learned so much! We will never forget our experiences at Tiger Tops. Thank you to Puspa and all the staff for making our stay so special
