Any serious nature enthusiast cannot miss a visit to Royal Chitwan National Park when touring Nepal. Machan wildlife resort located inside the National park, offers an ideal living experience for all such people. The resort offers accomodation in cottages spread around in the jungle with tent facilities also available. The cottages are decently furnished and offer a rustic experience, ideal for a quiet vacation.

There is a nearby Rapti river that flows along the national park. Travel from the main highway to the Machan resort is arranged by the resort in an old British Land Rover and it cuts across the Rapti river and moves over pebbles and sand giving you a jeep safari experience.

The resort conducts jungle activities on a daily basis which include Elephant Safari, Jeep Safari, Get-to-know-Elephant experience, Canoeing and an evening cultural dance and slide show. Each of these jungle activities are unique in themselves and are highly memorable. If you’re lucky, you might see a tiger ! The naturalists speak good English and are very knowledgeable.

We Highly recommend this place for any traveller to Chitwan National Park. The food served is Nepali, Continental and very well prepared. The staff is very cordial and professional. The resort has solar-panels based heating system and hot water is available for use in the cottages. It gets cold during the winter season and the resort also provides hot water jackets for guests.

The accommodation at Machan Wildlife Resort is in timber-framed bungalows having private bathrooms providing modern toilet amenities. To blend with the environment, lighting is by kerosene lanterns which we place outside your rooms at sundown. The main building with the dining room and bar and the pathway to the rooms are lighted by electric bulbs, and the power comes from a generator.

The paintings on the walls and the curtains also have a peculiar charm of it’s own. They were created by the women of Nepal’s Methyl culture.These women live in villages near the Tear town of Janakpur, where Sita, the heroine of The Ramayana, was married to the God, Ram. The villages once belonged to a Kingdom called Mithila and today the women continue to maintain the rich ancient traditions of their culture.

The Resort restaurant offers both Nepalese, Continental, Indian and Chinese cuisine, hygienically prepared with concern for your health. Our bar offers a wide variety of imported and local liquors, beers, soft drinks and exotic cocktails.

Located just outside the tropics, the days in Chitwan are generally warm for most of the year and require only light clothing. However, from November to February the early mornings and evenings can be very chilly, requiring a warm sweater or jacket. Early morning elephant rides can be particularly cold before the sun rises and warms the air enough to dispel the damp morning mist.

Light weight, loose-fitting trousers and long-sleeved shirts are recommended for elephant riding as they give protection from cuts and scratches while moving through the tall grass and forests. Canvas shoes or lightweight boots are ideal for walking or elephant riding as they give protection from thorny vines, insects and prickles. Bright colors are very conspicuous in the jungle and we advise that you wear neutral-colored clothing. A sunhat or light neck scarf and suncream are necessary for preventing sunburn and perhaps insect repellent for use out of doors in the evening. You may wish to bring a swim suit for a dip in the swimming pool in our grounds.

At Machan Wildlife Resort, a team of expert naturalists has been formed under the leadership of Dr. Charles Ramble, an anthropologist and naturalist with wide experience of Nepal. They will share their knowledge of the jungle’s flora and fauna as they guide you on elephant back and in Landrovers, on nature walks and bird-watching excursions Canoeing is done in traditional dugout canoes which will give you a tranquil crocodile’s-eye view of the jungle, and a few miles drive upstream to the villages of the Danwar tribal community will allow you a glimpse into the lives of the jungle dwellers of Nepal.

When the spirit of the explorer-adventurers is strongest, we will trek with you into the dense forests of the Churia hills, the last domain in Chitwan where wild elephants still roam. Hidden in this remote region are the remains of ancient settlements that the jungle has reclaimed. To appreciate MACHAN fully we recommend a visit of not less than 3 days.
