Four recently graduated girls joined Raj and Prem for a 16 day trek (Annapurna Sanctuary and Mardi Himal). The guides went above and beyond to ensure that you had the best trip possible. Raj has superhuman eyes and ears that can spot a rare bird from afar and Prem has a vast immense of knowledge on nepalese and tibetan history/ buddhism. We trekked during monsoon season in June but I think it was the perfect time for us as the routes were very quiet/ teahouses always had space and although it rained most afternoons, we usually arrived at our destination before the rain and the views were beautiful all morning!! We loved our guides so much we later travelled to Bardia to join Raj and Santa on a jungle safari. It was very very very hot in Bardia and the journey from Pokhara took 20 hours on public bus BUT everything was worth the sights we saw. We had the whole park to ourselves and saw lots of animals, including 4 tigers in one day (the closest being about 5 metres from us hidden in the grass). Although we were only armed with bamboo sticks, I felt at ease with our guides as they knew the jungle inside out and were not afraid of the animals. The love they have for the animals and the jungle is beautiful to see and I would not have wanted to experience my first time in Nepal with anyone else! I can't wait to go back to Nepal and I miss Raj and Prem already !

I stayed with Raju and Santos and had a brilliant few days in Bardia. Everything was beautifully arranged and we had some great views of tigers on the trips into the park. Helped by some great guiding with Pawan. Would strongly recommend booking

We, Dagmar and Tanja from near Munich spent 2 weeks here in April 2018. We only wanted to stay for 5 days, then 13 days! Raju and Santa are excellent hosts, they are so eager to take care of you wonderfully.
We had a great room, in which we felt very comfortable. The garden is very nice, you can relax here.
The food is prepared with love, we have always been asked to our liking.
We have done several safaris with Raju and Santa: Great!
These 2 weeks were just beautiful, we will never forget our stay and we will be back.
Anyone who is interested in wildlife, we can highly recommend the Samsara Safari Camp!
Raju and Santa, thank you again for the wonderful time! We often think back to it. We never forget our 1st Tiger!

I have gone on tier safaris before with no success- until I came to Samsara.
With the help of Raju and Santa, our hosts and guides, we explored the jungle and sighted many different kinds of wildlife, including tigers, rhinos, and elephants. These guys are professionals- they know the park and the wildlife habitats very well. Santa has a sixth sense about the animals and where to find them- he can identify anything, often by listening to it's call- really amazing. They also understand hospitality and how to create a very pleasant stay for visitors. I met many other guests and shared meals and drinks along with pleasant conversation in the garden at evening. A great experience- highly recommended.

Room Tip: Each of the private cabins has a nice view and easy access to the lodge. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the accommodatioms.

We stayed in Samsara safari camp for 5 days after spending 16 days trekking with Raj and Prem. The camp is beautiful, filled with colourful flowers and overlooking nearby fields. The rooms are spacious and clean with en suite bathrooms. We ate delicious local and traditional food for 3 meals a day, making sure we had plenty of energy for our walking/rafting tours in the days. During our stay, we had a very pleasant cycle round the village, and then spent 2 days walking and 1 rafting round the national park. Santa and Raj are wonderful guides, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the local wildlife and a deep passion for conservation and protection of the park, the animals and the people living in the local villages. Both of them have perfect english, and are great company on the long walks. Thanks to their superhuman eyes and ears (and tree climbing skills) we were lucky enough to see 4 tigers, 6 rhinos, elephants, more birds than we could keep count of, amongst other animals. I couldnt recommend Samsara safari camp enough - we will be back!
