Meghauli Serai, Nepal
Why we like it
- Located on the Rapti river, with superb views from all rooms
- Opportunity to spot tigers and leopards
- Explore Chitwan by Jeep, on foot, or by canoe
- Visit a local village to experience rural life
- Only 12 rooms and four villas, makes the lodge a real retreat
- This is a perfect option for families – get that you are Jungle Book feeling!
The campfire in the evening is the best place to share stories of your travels and be enchanted by the guide’s tales.
I have been very impressed with this service. We look forward to booking another sensational holiday with Abercrombie & Kent!

A true haven set on the banks of the River Rapti sits the Meghauli Serai. Stay in contemporary Meghauli rooms all complete with a balcony, or the more spacious Rapti Villas all with a private plunge pool and offering great views of the river and the National Park. From here enjoy Jeep safaris, walking safaris or canoe safaris.
Dining is always a great occasion and the perfect time to share stories of adventures in the bush round the campfire or a private romantic dinner. When you are not out on safari, take some time out and sit by the beautiful infinity swimming pool with river view decks, or spend time in the private machan over the river, and sit back and wait as the wildlife comes to you.
Best time to be there
The climate varies in Nepal from cool summers and severe winters in the north to subtropical summers and mild winters in the south. October and November are the best time to visit. The monsoon occurs between June and September.
