1st Taj Safari lodge abroad
Meghauli Serai Jungle Lodge offers guests a truly luxurious and sustainable experience in the midst of Nepal’s Chitwan National Park, home to several species of birds and animals.
Meghauli Serai Jungle Lodge located in Chitwan National Park, Nepal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is Taj Safaris' first lodge out of India which opened its doors to the public very recently. The luxury wildlife lodge offers 13 well- appointed rooms and 16 independent villas and infuses luxury with local traditions.
Commenting on the move, Rohit Khosla, Sr. Vice President – Operations, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, said, “We are delighted to extend the legendary Taj hospitality to guests in Nepal. The Taj group has a pioneering reputation for creating destinations and we are very proud to pres- ent the latest Taj Safaris’ Meghauli Serai Jungle Lodge at Chitwan National Park. We are committed to adding value to the community and the region.”
The lodge incorporates sustainability in their ethos which manifests in the Newari and Tharu- inspired front doors and the use of natural earthy tones that reflect the landscape. They also believe in using locally-sourced ingredients for a truly ethnic experience in a relaxed setting. In terms of activities, guests can discover and enjoy the natural beauty of Nepal through safaris on elephant-back, jeep rides and jungle walks for a whole new experience. Nature walks through local Tharu villages and canoeing on the Rapti River are also other ways to explore the stunning region.
Mridula Tangirala, Director of Operations, Taj Safaris, thinks that the best wildlife experience is interpretive and rooted in the local wildlife and community through a proven sustainable eco-tourism model. She says, "With this exciting opening in Nepal, we are looking forward to welcoming guests for immersive wildlife experiences in the ‘ heart of the jungle’ at our newest destination, Meghauli Serai.”
