It's hard to know where to even begin with this incredible place! Even before we arrived it was so easy to contact the resort with quick replies; they even kindly helped us sort our transport from Kathmandu so all we had to do was show up at the bus station and they dropped us right at the resort. We had originally booked to stay for 5 nights and booked an extra week after about an hour of arriving; that is how instantly welcome you are made to feel. It felt more like a homestay than anything with the family who live here opening up every part of their life to you while allowing you to get on with your own thing if that's what you want. The rooms themselves are extremely good for what you pay; a comfortable bed with a mosquito net and your own bathroom with shower and toilet. I was extremely ill when I arrived with a stomach infection and I can't thank them enough for their help over those three days, they gave me all natural remedies and cooked special meals for me to help fight the infection and get my strength back and it worked within days. The actual jungle tours were nothing short of incredible. Our guide Jack was so knowledgeable about every aspect of the jungle and has some very fun stories, you can tell how passionate and respectful he is about the jungle and all of it's animals. We saw 2 rhino's on our first day and thanks to Jack's tracking skills we saw a long sighting of a rhino and even a tiger on the second day! We can't recommend these safaris enough, it was an experience we will never forget whether it be with Jack or his brother who is just as passionate. Outside of the tours there are some lovely walks right at your doorstep through the traditional village with stunning views and very friendly villagers. We've never stayed somewhere more peaceful. If you want an authentic stay while you're in Nepal and are interested in wildlife and nature this is the only place to come. Thank you so much again to everyone at Kingfisher, we hope we'll be back soon!

Nice place. Rural life, peace. Helpful people. We were there for 3 days. Good food supplied. Not expensive rate for rooms. There are many lodges there with same facilities and 4 times the rate. Paved road to the lodge. After this lodge there are lodges too but no paved roads

From the moment we landed at Nepalganj until we went back to Kathmandu we had a great time. Everything was possible! Even our pick up from the airport! First we did a 3 day camping trip in Bardia National Park. All arranged by Bardia Kingfisher. The really thought of everything. And also homered our wishes to be the only ones at the trip without any other tourists. Just us and our guide Jack and assistants. After we stayed another couple of days at their resort. It’s a really nice, small place, closest to the gate of the Bardia National Park. And because it’s runned by family , you really feel right at home. Not like when you are at a bigger place, and you are just another tourist! We loved it so much , that we ( Pratap, the brother of our guide Jack) changed our flight so we could stay longer. They really do everything to make your trip one to remember. We loved being at their place, and in the jungle. In jungle we had the best guide you can get. He grew up there, and knows everything about the jungle and it’s animals. Normal we travel trough the African reserves on our own, so we know a little about how things work.. But Jack showed us many new things and learned us a lot about the jungle of Bardia and it’s animals. We couldn’t have picked a better guide. And we saw them all; Elephants, Rhinos, Tiger and more! So our dream to see these magnificent animals came true! And we will go back for sure!! To stay at there beautiful place, and the go into the jungle with Jack So , Jack, Pratap, Anju thank you very much for the amazing time we had with you! We will always remember our time at Bardia Kingfisher, and we will be back for sure Judith

fantastic time in the jongle - no not a spelling error this is what they call it! takes 1 day to get there and spend three full days there and one day out. This allows for a jeep safari a walking safari and a raft safari and each is worth it WOW Saw 6 tigers (missed no 7) 10 rhinos a mating a wild bull elephant with tusks, crocodiles in the wild a MASSIVE python and birds a plenty (plus heaps of tiger food aka deer, - plus monkeys and jackels) Full on fun day after day. these guys love their jongle and will work their butts off to find a tiger for you but do go with their suggestions on how to go about it. Good spacious room with hot shower good food and flush toilet in a village setting where they still plaster their houses by hand with mud (mozzie screens on the windows and a fan)!! Family business, great guides. Have realistic expectations and you will have a ball.
