We won’t walk for a whole day inside the jungle but wait for the tiger to see in some location. During this Tiger tracking jungle walk, we will have our packed lunch inside the jungle which we call a Jungle picnic. Tigers normally used to visit water holes for drinking water during summertime so waiting from the safe location inside the jungle is another awesome experience you can have in Bardia National Park.
