Kaziranga National Park
Due to its remote location, Kaziranga National Park is less visited than
the wildlife destinations in central India, but it enjoys a beautiful
setting on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra River and has recently
been declared a World Heritage Site. Kaziranga is famous for its
healthy population of the Indian greater one-horned rhino, but also has
wild buffalo, sambar, swamp deer, hog deer, wild pig and around
1,000 elephants. The birdlife is also prolific, especially water birds
such as egrets, pond herons, river terns, black-necked stork, fishing
eagles, pelicans and the rare Bengal florican. There are also otters
and dolphins in the river. There will be morning and afternoon game
drives each day.
