Guiding rhino watching trip before dawn: Jib

Guiding rhino watching trip before dawn: Jib

Chital Lodge is run by one of Nepal’s great but little known bird experts. His name is Jib and he knows most of the local wildlife, too. Jib has spent most of his youth on the heels of nature guides and elephant drivers in the nearby Chitwan National Park and in that way got to know his way around the reserve. Want to see a rhino up close on a “walking safari” along the river, or hike through five meter tall elephant grass, well Jib is the best guide we have met.

Or if you’re just into birds or simply want a relaxing time in the shade, no need to go further than under the canopy at Chital Lodge. The lodge is located in the village of Meghauli, next to a clear-water stream in between trees hundreds of years old. It’s like a patch of jungle of its own. Jib offers simple, cosy accommodation in four thatched huts, a shower, and delicious local cuisine on the porch. Getting there is easy: just follow the road ten kilometres from Narajanghat.
