Part of the story of Bardia is its emergence as a habitat for wild Asian elephants. Bardia was apparently not always a habitat for these tremendous beasts, but it has come to host possibly the largest number of wild elephants in Nepal. While firm numbers are hard to establish, as much of Bardia remains inaccessible, there are an estimated 142 wild elephants in Nepal and the bulk of those are thought to live in Bardia.
