Chitwan National Park, Nepal
Zinc Journey Chitwan is a spectacular new safari lodge on the banks of the Rapti River opposite Chitwan National Park, near Meghauli. Opened in 2014, the luxurious property sets a new standard for accommodations in the Chitwan region. Its location is unsurpassed, offering stunning views of the jungle—including rhinos bathing in the river—and unforgettable sunsets. The subtropical forests of Chitwan are home to wild Asiatic elephants, the one-horned rhinoceros, royal Bengal tiger and garial crocodile, and Zinc Journey Chitwan provides unparalleled access to these natural environs on 4x4 wildlife drives, nature walks, elephant-back safaris and boat trips. The lodge's 29 suites and villas offer elegant accommodations featuring contemporary decor in a palette of earth tones that harmonizes seamlessly with the natural environment. In between nature activities, guests are invited to relax in the gorgeous swimming pool facing the river, read a book over a cocktail in the library bar, or indulge in a treatment at the spa.
