Elephant ride: the best and safest way to view wild animals is from the top of an elephant. Usually a number of elephants enter the jungle together.
Boat ride: There are crocodiles in the jungle rivers. Riding in a canoe allows you to see them from up close as they are sunning on the sandbanks. You will see a lot of water birds too.
Jeep ride: Driving around the jungle in a jeep is another good (although noisy) way to observe its denizens.
Jungle walk: Walking in the forest puts you in the thick of things. Please note that it can be dangerous.
Bird Watching: A walk about to view the colorful jungle birds is fun, even if you are no great enthusiast.
Village tour: The Tharus are an indigenous people of the Terai plains. You can visit by ox-cart or on foot to observe their lifestyles.
Cultural Proagram: At the end of the day, you will be entertained by a traditional Tharu dance around a campfire.
