All our rooms are equipped with mosquito nets and fan. A/C rooms available. WIFI available for FREE.We offer a free pickup from the bus park. Just let us know what time and from where you left so we will be there.
MalariaChitwan is a malaria free district since the 1960's already so the risk to get this disease is very low in the region. You must also be aware of tics and leeches after the monsoon but, unlike those found in Europe, they don't transmit any disease.MoneyThere are a few ATM machines in Sauraha village but they are sometime not very reliable in times of load shedding. The exchange rates are not very good so bring enough cash. We don't have a credit card payment system but we accept Euros or US Dollars at the same rate than the local money changers.Weather in ChitwanOctober to March is the 'dry' season. The days are sunny and warm but the nights can be cold (6-7°C) and there is a thick fog until 9 to 10 o'clock in the morning. March to May is the hot season (35 to 40°C during the day and 25 to 30°C during the night). There are sometimes thunderstorms with strong winds and heavy showers in the afternoon or during the night. June to October is the rainy season. During this period, you can expect some showers almost every day.What to bringYou can choose your clothes according to the season and weather but dark colours and long sleeves are better for jungle activities. For the shoes, runners are better than big boots because the jungle is flat and sometimes very hot. We don't recommend sandals to avoid cuts and leeches bites.You can also bring insect repellent, a hat, binoculars, etc..., but the most important is to bring yours smile.
