KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK
Covering an area of approximately 430 sq kms, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kaziranga National Park is home to the world’s largest population of the Indian One-Horned Rhinoceros as well as the Indian Wild Water Buffalo. It has also earned the distinction of having the highest density of Royal Bengal Tigers (one every 5 sq km) making this park an incredibly rich biodiversity hotspot. With its marshy swamps and thickets of elephant grass, this park also supports large populations of Indian elephants, Indian bison, swamp deer, Capped Langurs, Hoolock Gibbons, and more.
Besides wildlife, Kaziranga National Park is also a birding paradise. A few of the bird species found here are the Oriental Honey Buzzard, Black-shouldered Kite, White-tailed Eagle, Himalayan Griffon and so on. During the winter months, the park’s marshes are home to large populations of migratory bird species including the Bar-headed Goose, Ruddy Shell Duck, and Red-crested Pochard.
Explore this national park on jeep safaris, elephant back, and on foot.
