The canoes used for the river excursion are unstable and very uncomfortable. We saw 15-20 crocodiles during the canoe ride so it was far from relaxing. Our personal tour guide (not the Chitwan guide) told us his canoe had been attacked in his last ride and he would not go with us. Once on land, we were told that a rhino had killed a guide last month when it charged a group of tourists. The Chitwan guide also told us that the park had rouge elephants that had charged and killed people in the past. We saw a rhino but it was eating peacefully. However, our group was charged by a young, male elephant. Nobody got hurt during our excursion, but you should be forewarned that this trip is potentially dangerous. The guides have only a stick with them and your are told to hide behind a tree if your are charged. Finally, the hour-long trip back to the starting point is long and arduous. Wear pants because the brush is thick.
