Riding on an elephant through the thick bush in the jungle in search of the Asian one-horned Rhinoceros and the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger is a great surprise. Tigers travel alone and are very clever and quick. It will be one of the most enduring experiences in your travel history. Each elephant is equipped to carry four people and the elephant driver (guide). The wooden saddles are definitely not known for comfort but nobody is there for luxury loafing. Grasslands in the Terai are remarkable with tall bushes reaching as high as four meters in some places.
