It is a truly wildlife adventure of a different kind–jungle safaris on elephant backs or jeeps, bird watching, canoe rides and jungle walks.

The park is bounded by the Rapti and Narayani River in the north, Parsa Wildlife Reserve in the east and Madi settlements and India border in the south. The physiography of the park consists of the Terai and Siwaliks. Three major rivers Narayani, Rapti and Reu, and their floodplains; and several lakes and pools are the major water sources of the park.
