I have been living in Nepal for the past two years and a half. After a long trek in the Himal, I decided to take a rest at Bardia for 3 days preparing for a trek through Khaptad. What I thought would be just some time off before the next trek became an excellent experience due to the hospitality of Buddhi and Sonja and all their staff. Ended up doing a one day jeep safari in the National Park and was fortunate enough to see two tigers. And the trek to Khaptad, which I did with Buddhi and Manmohan, was one of the best experiences of my life. Staying at Bardia Homestay allows you not only to enjoy Thakurdwara and the National Park, but opens up the whole West of Nepal, thanks to the dedication and knowledge of the owners and staff. Thank you so much for everything, I really appreciated it. Everything was excellent. Hope to see you all soon after these crazy times!

Bardia Home Stay is the perfect place to stay. The hospitallity of Sonja, Budhi and the staff is really great. Everything can be arranged and is possible. The flexibility is enormous. If you want to explore the national park the guides are really fantastic and they learn you a lot about nature, animals and plants and they see every little change in the grassland to make it possible that you can see the tiger, rhino,elephant or special birds. Lucky me i've seen all of those animals. Also the rooms are perfect, a lot of space, good sanitary. Besides the food is also great every day an different meal and if you have special wishes is also possible. Don't forget to explore the villages and try the cooking workshop in people's homes a great experience. The surroundings of Bardia is fantastic and gives you energy. Sonja, Budhi and staff thank you for everything and keep going all the good things you do.

I did a ton of research for my trip to Bardia and happened to come across Bardia Homestay. I reached out via email and heard back almost immediately. They were quite flexible with my Nepal route changing which was so kind of them. Honestly they have some of the best communication I have ever had with a guesthouse. They also were very helpful with keeping you updated on ways to get to their place. I was so happy to learn about the hot showers upon arrival. I honestly thought they were joking, but they weren't. It was the first hot shower I had in a couple weeks. There are so many options for trekking and exploring that you could easily spend 4-6 days here. I was so happy that we found a tiger on my second day of trekking. So much wildlife to be seen!! I do wish my guide could have told me more information about the other animals and birds we saw. Also, be sure to enjoy the sunrises each morning. The outside breakfast table provides the best view!! Overall, it was an amazing time and I highly recommend staying here!!!

Namaste Brent, Thank you for visiting us and writing this review. We are happy for you that you saw the tiger! But also sad that you had to leave earlier because of the lockdown of the airport. Next time when you are able to stay longer, the guide will tell you more stories and insight about the wildlife. For now take care and hopefully you can enjoy your further travels soon. Kind regards, Sonja, Budhi and Manmohan

We had an amazing time at this place. The people are very nice and very helpful! They can arrange any great jungle experience you want, such as jungle walks, Jeep Safari and a night in a jungle treehouse. They also offer very nice activities which give you great insight into the tharu local people and their way of living. If you want a great and relaxed stay at Bardia, we’d definitely recommend this homestay!
