Second home to Indian Rhino and refuge for tigers
Dec. 2019
Apart from "Kaziranga", The "Dudhwa national park" has become the Second home to Indian Rhino. Also its a major refuge for tigers. Elephants are found in herds. This park shares borders with Nepal forests so sometimes Resident Rhinos and Tigers crisscross the borders. an amazing spectacle awaits in this abundance of flora and fauna

Outstanding and pristine forest
Mar. 2020
Dudwha National Park forms part of the Dudwha Tiger Reserve. It is not very well known and so is not often very busy. This may account for its unspoilt condition - it is an outstanding experience just to visit. We saw only a handful of other safari jeeps on our visit and so you will get a good view of wildlife when you find it.
This is a poor part of India and so the Park facilities are basic but it is rich in natural beauty and wildlife. We saw numerous species of birds (large and small), wild boars, many species of deer and an excellent example of a peacock in full colourful plumage.
The high light of this visit was the safari on elephant back, through tall elephant grasses to see the one horned rhino which has only recently been reintroduced into the area. We were lucky as we went the day before heavy rains which closed the park to protect the environment.
We stayed at the outstanding Jaagir Lodge which is about a forty minute drive away. We had a private guide and private vehicle. Our guide dealt with all aspects of entering the park including providing a copy of passports. This was an outstanding experience and exceeded our expectation even though we did not see a tiger.

A lesser known gem in the Terai
Feb. 2020 • Business
Dudhwa National Park forms the core of the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve. We visited the park to enjoy the beauty of vast Terai grasslands, interspersed with woodlands and wetlands. The visit was productive, we could see a rhino, quite a few barasinga and at least 50 species of birds in one trip. Francolins and waterfowls were abundant. Hog deer was the key species in grasslands and spotted deer was most common. Good opportunity to photograph wildlife without getting blocked by many other vehicles. Accommodation at the Forest Rest House was simple and basic. A must visit for wildlife lovers. Look for a driver named ‘Deepak’ or guide named ‘Sonu’.

Beautiful wilderness
Jan. 2020
A little known tiger reserve and for that there are far fewer visitor numbers. We were on our own most of the time. The birdwatching was brilliant as well. 124 species in 4 days.

Greenery all around…
Dec. 2019 • Couples
Dhudhwa National Park is not very commercialised and this has limited safaris and vehicles available. The forest is very dense and has large population of tigers, rhinos, etc. However as we went when there were lot of tourists and very cold we could not spot tigers or rhinos. We did manage to see different breeds of deer, wild fowl, monkeys, birds, otters and several water birds. The safari vehicles are good and the Forest is very beautiful.

Pleasant & Unexplored Forest
Dec. 2018
Elephant safari is a must try in Dudhwa national park. It is really enjoyable. Was able to see a rhino during elephant ride. We visited twice to this park but couldn't get trace of tiger, but only found its footprints. Deers and birds can be found regularly.

Tiger Reserve
Mar. 2019 • Family
We visited the park in Mar 19 and did the safaris covering the kishanpur range area. This area is supposed to have maximum sightings. The Sharda river forms one side of the area. We were able to sight a number of birds including peacocks, varieties of deers as well as wild boars, however the tigers eluded us though we were able to see fresh pug marks as well as track a few calls. We used the gypsy provided by the resort and were charged Rs 3000/- per trip for four people. You may get this cheaper if you were to book directly with the park. On the whole a refreshing break. It is definitely a birders paradise and if one is lucky one can even get to sight a tiger. During this time of the month the rhinoceros camp was closed due to non availability of elephants. It is prudent to check on the availability of the elephant ride before planning as this adds further to the sightings that one can have.

Beautiful Pristine Jungle
Feb. 2019 • Friends
Its a beautiful jungle, quite untouched. The flora and fauna is quite intriguing. The woodlands, grasslands and wetlands are quite promising. Though I am saddened by the fact that they burn the grasslands in Feb. I sighted amazing birds there and got a glimpse of the tiger on my last safari there in the most pristine settings ever, a sight I will never forget.

Beautiful Dudhwa National Park
Feb. 2019 • Couples
Forests cannot survive without Tigers,nor can Tigers survive without forests.
The tiger saves the forest and the forest saves the tiger. The tiger without a forest gets killed and the forest without a tiger gets destroyed.
So let the forest protect the tiger and the tiger protect the forest.
- From the Mahabharata

Dudhwa is one of India's most magnificent forests. 
Dudhwa regained its lost grandeur as a result of efforts of conservationist Billy Arjan Singh over sixty years.
Dudhwa largely a sal and teak forest is one of the most picturesque jungles of India, covering an area of around 500 sq km in the Terai region of Uttar Pradesh bordering Nepal.
While I find it difficult to compare forests as I think each forest has its own unique beauty and individuality, Dudhwa is by far one of the most pristine forests in our country.
As Dudhwa shares its boundaries with Nepal on one side — I feel this seems to have taken a huge toll on the tiger population here, due to deforestation and agriculture.
While the officials estimate the tiger population at a little over 80 in the region of Dudhwa and the adjoining areas of Kishanpur, the signs in the forest and the movement of animals seems to suggest a much lower number.
Plenty of bird life, peacocks,crocodiles,
Swamp deer ( Barasingha), Barking Deer, Wild Elephants, Wild Boar, and Chitals can be seen. There are Rhinos ,which can be seen only if you take an elephant ride.
Sadly in our visit the Elephant rides were cancelled, due to the wild elephants being in "musth"
To see the elusive Tiger is to be lucky!
But I would say enjoy the forest, it's a quiet beautiful haven!!
I planned my trip to Dudhwa National Park with the help of Liladhar Sonu, Guide and Naturalist.
Sonu knows Dudhwa like the back of his hand. He is very knowledgeable.
In the jungle he is highly alert to all the sights and sounds, which we city dwellers miss!
Once you reach Dudhwa until you leave, Sonu will take very good care of you and your Safaris in the Jungle,and you will enjoy your stay at Dudhwa.
