Elephant Rehabilitation Centre at Bardia National Park

Just 45 minutes walk from Bardia Hideaway Cottage there is an Elephant Rehabilitation Centre with about 20 elephants who have either been rescued from private owners, orphaned by poachers or sent to Bardia by other wildlife agencies. Each day the Mahoots take the elephants into the park to forage for food and it is possible to view them washing and crossing the rivers for free.
If you want a closer look you can go the the centre and for a 50 Rupees donation you can spend as long as you want watching them there. The best time for this is in the late afternoon as the elephants return from their feeding. The mahoots and centre staff will encourage you to feed the babies who are very confident and playful.
We can tell you how to get there independently or you can use one of our children to show you the way.
