What to See?

Kaziranga National Park is a gift of nature to mankind, and a must see for very one. Kaziranga offers you experience of the wild which is unique and becomes a part of your life time memory. You can enjoy the beauty of the Greater One Horned Rhinoceros with its majestic body and its charismatic horn, see herd of elephants and some most magnificent tuskers (if you are lucky!). You are sure to come across herds of Wild Buffalo with their magnificent horns. These are some of the last populations in the wild. You would also come across herds of Hog Deer, Sambar and Swamp Deer. You would surely come across the rich avifauna that Kaziranga boasts of. Its a paradise for bird-watchers (please do not forget to bring your own binoculars). You could also come across wild boar, Hog Badgers, Porcupine. Red Jungle Fowl, Kaleej Pheasnt and Swamp Francolin could also be spotted, if you have sharp eyes and strong hearing. If you look towards the sky, you may be able to spot Pallas Fishing Eagle, Hornbills and Cranes in flight. And if you are lucky enough, you might as well come across a tiger or two.

You would be amazed by the unique habitat which is a mix of wetlands, grasslands (short and tall), woodlands, cane-breaks and highlands. The rich biodiversity with a mix of herbs, shrubs, grasses, creepers and trees is worth observing.

How to See?

Elephant Safari:

Elephant Safari is available only in the early Morning session (timings 5:30 am to 7:30 am). The safari is typically for an hour only. Tickets for the Safari, currently, need to be obtained the previous night from Kohora Range on payment of requisite fee. There are two Elephant Safari points in the Kaziranga National Park, one at Mihimukh in the Central (Kohora) Range and another at Bagori in the Western Range. At Bagori, the elephants belong to private owners who have been permitted to carry tourists on trained elephants.

For Elephant Safari, tourists need to fill up the Elephant Safari Form.

Elephant Safari Advisory:

If one is suffering from back-ache/ spinal injuries, stiff joints, or is very old and infirm, or physically challenged, then the Elephant Safari should be avoided. Though every care is taken to ensure a safe and enjoyable elephant safari that one would remember for rest of his/ her life, there could be accidents or attacks by wild animals. However, such incidents are rare to come across.

Jeep Safari:

Jeep Safari is permitted on pre-defined tourist circuits within the Kaziranga National Park currently at the following four points:

  1. Mihimukh in Central Range at Kohora
  2. Bagori in Western Range at Bagori
  3. Agaratoli in Eastern Range at Agaratoli
  4. Ghorakati in Burapahar Range at Ghorakhati

Each of these circuits take about one and half to two and half hours (or even more depending upon interest of the tourists). No private vehicles are permitted inside the Park. The tourists need to hire authorized Jeep Safari Maruti Gypsy vehicles from the Jeep Safari Associations at Kohora and Bagori. These associations are run by the local unemployed youth of the villages on the fringe of the Park. All such vehicles entering the park must have valid registration with the Park authorities. Jeep Safari is a regulated activity, and vehicles are permitted only from 7.30 AM to 3.00 PM (or dusk) within the Park. Other than at the identified landing points (which are typically not more than one or two in each of the tourist circuits), no landing is allowed anywhere along the circuit [You get down at your own risk]. Every Jeep Safari vehicle or a convoy of them together are provided armed escorts. No unescorted vehicle is allowed inside the Park. [No tourist is advised to go unescorted either alone or in a group inside the Park]. You are required to pay requisite entry fee for vehicles (Jeep Safari vehicles), camera and video camera etc.

When to Visit?

The ideal time to visit Kaziranga is between the months of November and April. The Park typically remains closed from 1st May to 31st October every year.
