Wildlife of Kaziranga National Park Kaziranga National Park, Assam 4D/ 3N
Available from November to April
Kaziranga National Park is the pride of Assam and is one of the most attractive wildlife destinations in Asia. It was declared a protected sanctuary by the British viceroy Lord Curzon in 1904. Kaziranga is home to an incredible diversity of wildlife and birds, and decades of conservation efforts has made it one of the richest wild places and has attracted thousands of wildlife enthusiasts from all over of the world, making it an UNESCO declared natural World Heritage Site. Kaziranga is best known for its one-horned Asiatic rhinos, from a mere 100 rhinos a hundred years back, Kaziranga today is home to more than 2000 of them. The park also records the highest tiger density anywhere in India, but due to the tall grasslands of the Brahmaputra plains, sighting a tiger in Kaziranga is a more thrilling and rewarding experience.
In this delightful tour, guests will embark on thrilling jeep safaris which will go deep inside the wilderness of the national park, through grasslands and teeming forests. There are four forest belts in Kaziranga, namely Agratoli (eastern range) which is primarily dense forest, Kohora (central range) grasslands and home to majority of the rhinos, Bagori (western range) has mixed grasslands and forest and the offbeat Burapahar range which has a hilly forested terrain. Apart from the jeep safaris in the forest ranges and wildlife corridors, visitors can also enjoy a river safari at the confluence of Dhansiri and Brahmaputra rivers to spot the river dolphins, aquatic species, migratory wetland birds and also perhaps the tiger! One can also enjoy leisurely elephant rides in the central and western ranges which are a thrill for families and children for getting a opportunity to sight wild animals from a close range and making introduction with a mahout and his elephant. Exploring Kaziranga is similar to the safari experiences in the savannas of Africa that offer breathtaking views of landscape as well as wildlife. Other than nature, you may also visit nearby villages of Karbi tribe, the ethnic inhabitants of the Burapahar hills who live a sustainable lifestyle much connected to Kaziranga for ages, and spend an evening witnessing a cultural performance highlighting dances and folk.
Amidst a setting of Assamese countryside, bamboo groves and tea gardens, Wildgrass is a boutique colonial styled jungle lodge with extensive grounds where the enthusiastic owner grows more than 200 different plant species. The spacious rooms are fairly luxurious with soothing wooden floors and private baths. The grand dining hall is charmingly old-world and provides a setting for conversations and friendships.
