Ethical ecotourism underpins everything that is done at Sapana Village Lodge, from serving home-grown, organic produce in its restaurant to rescuing poorly treated elephants and funding a local primary school. Sapana is the Nepalese word for ‘dream’ and the dream of the lodge’s owners is to use profits from tourism to alleviate poverty, and provide a better future for local people through improved health and education.
Sapana Village Lodge is located in Chitwan National Park (Figure 1), which is Nepal’s first National Park and a World Heritage site. It is home to some of the last remaining single-horned Asian rhinos and Bengal tigers in the wild.
