Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve covers 305 sq km of Sal forest and phanta means grassland along the banks of the Bahini River. The terrain is similar toBardia National Park and the reserve has tigers, rhinos, crocodiles, wild elephants and Nepal's largest population of swamp deer, currently numbering around 2000 as well as large numbers of migratory birds. Suklaphanta wildlife reserve tour is ideal for bird watching. A very few tour group visits this wildlife reserve. Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve was established in 1973, and it was a Royal Hunting Reserve in 1969 and was a famous hunting area. It is today the best nature conservation in South Asia.
The Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve has mainly grassland, some marshland and four lakes. It is home to the largest population of Bengal florican in Nepal. Queen's Lake in the center of the reserve is one of the wildlife highlight and the place to spend an early morning watching deer paddling and crocodiles lurking. It estimates that the tiger population is between 10 and 50, but it's likely that many of these roam between India and Nepal, and likely beyond the reserve boundaries. No worry though, as sloth bear, leopard and elephant are also here, along with the largest population of swamp deer known as Barasingha in the world.
Birdwatchers have a checklist of around 450 species birds including great numbers of winter visitors. Hodgson's Bushchat are one of the pin-ups here, huge areas of their grassland habitat has been lost across their range. Suklaphanta is an important reserves for endangered, the white-rumped and slender-billed. There we also find babblers, weavers, woodpeckers and a few owls. Rare grassland species are the real draw here and walking through the phanta to the lookout towers is highly recommended.
