The oldest park in Assam, Kaziranga National Park, was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for having more than 75% of the world population of the one-horned Rhinoceros. The 430 sq km park runs along the river Brahmaputra on the North and the Karbi Anglong hills on the South. There are a large number of tigers found here as well.

Together with elusive tigers & one Horn Rhino, the other mammals found here include the rare Hispid Hare, Indian Civet, Sloth Bear, Indian and Chinese Pangolins, Chinese Ferret Badger, Assamese Macaque, Capped Langur and Hoolock Gibbon.

The park has 3 entry points- Eastern range, Western range and Central range. While the Western and Central range is good for animal sightings, the Eastern range is amazing for bird enthusiasts. The park is more like the Savannah's that have flat land for miles together. This makes sighting easier.

The park is open for tourist from 1st November to 30th April only with February and March being the best season since a lot of grass is burned out in controlled fire.

So pack your bags and head to the East for the best sighting season at Kaziranga National Park. Get in touch with us to plan your travel. Write in to us at roshni@gocaribou.com or call us on +91 987025949
