Kaziranga National Park

Rated 3/5    

Kaziranga in North East India is a stunning park with a great conservation success story for the Indian one horned rhinoceros. Not only the homeland of the great Indian one horned rhinoceros, the park also provides shelter to a variety of other wildlife from wild elephant to leopard, jungle cat and otter.

A less visited park due to its location, it offers those who make the journey there a very rewarding experience. Jeep safaris are easily arranged and less restrictive than those in the Central Indian Parks, however, elephant safaris have been suspended for visitors at the Park with effect from May 1 2015 until further notice. Jeep safaris will remain operational but will be subject to favourable weather and road conditions during the monsoon.

In 2015 the number of rhinos increased as has the tiger population, with more sightings of cubs. Of the 167 tigers counted in Assam, more than 125 are believed to be at the Kaziranga National Park. Around 20 tiger cubs have been sighted in different pockets of the Park. Although offering the highest density of Tiger in India, the lush undergrowth and foliage make them harder to spot.

Kaziranga is accessed by flight from Delhi or Kolkata to Guwahati, followed by a four hour drive. A visit to Kaziranga is also included in the cruise itineraries of the Assam Bengal Navigation Company so it is possible to visit the park during a boat cruise on the Brahmaputra River. The accommodation options at Kaziranga are limited but Diphlu Lodge manages to offer a simple but comfortable stay.
