Kaziranga National Park

About The Park

Welcome to Kaziranga National Park, the home of the Great Indian One Horned Rhinoceros. Kaziranga National Park is an extraordinary triumph in the chapters of wildlife conservation. During the early 1900’s, this grand animal used to roam the plain’s of north India and the fantastic wetlands of the rivers Brahmaputra, Indus and Ganga. Due to limitless poaching and hunting, the one horned Rhinoceros was nearly decimated and on the verge of extinction. In 1940 a conservation action plan was formulated in order to safeguard the Great Indian One Horned Rhinoceros and it was declared a national park and a protected wild life sanctuary. Keeping in view the efforts and the sensitivity of the situation, it was declared a world heritage site in 1985. Today this majestic animal can be found in Kaziranga and Manas in the north eastern state of Assam. Kaziranga National Park is also known as a birding paradise and provides a safe haven to a large number of animals.

The Kaziranga National Park is located in the state of Assam on the banks of the magnificent Brahmaputra River. The park covers an area of approximately 435 Sq Km and falls under 2 districts namely Golaghat and Nagaon. Huge areas of the park are covered by swamps and large thickets of elephant grass which provide the perfect environment for the One-Horned Rhino. The best way to enjoy the splendor of the park is by opting for an Elephant Safari. The terrain of the park makes wildlife viewing an easy task as compared to other national parks. Kaziranga National Park comprises of vast open fields and huge areas of tall elephant grass which are suitable for enjoying elephant safaris. It is advisable to start early in the morning with trained Mahouts as your guides in order to increase your chances of sighting wide-ranging wild animals. You would be able to sight herds of wild elephants roaming freely the length and breadth of the park. The best part is that you would be able to observe the Rhinos from extremely close quarters from an elephant back. Observing a Rhino in its natural habitat is an amazing experience which you are sure to remember for a long time.

Species Of Rhino’s

Rhino’s can be categorized into 5 species. The different kinds of Rhino’s are the Black Rhino, White Rhino, Indian Rhino, Sumatran Rhino and Javan Rhino. The Indian Rhino, Sumatran Rhino and the Javan Rhino are all Asian Rhinos which are located in Assam in India, North Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan. The Black Rhino and the White Rhino are found in Africa.

The difference between the African and the Asian Rhino is the skin and number of horns. The African Rhino has two horns and much smoother skin than the Asian Rhino. The Asian Rhino has a single horn and knotted skin which gives a look of a body shield. A Rhino is a completely vegetarian and feeds on leaves, fruits, grass and aquatic plants. For a vegetarian it can weigh up to 2000 Kg….wow, that sure is a lot of food. The best time to sight a Rhino is either early mornings or evenings. They prefer to lay low during the day time in order to avoid the heat. The average age of a Rhino is 42 years, though some have been reported to live much longer than that.

Apart from these, Kaziranga National Park is also visited by vast numbers of migratory birds who visit the park in winters and make the swampy areas and lakes their transitory dwelling. Some of the migratory birds who visit the park are Bar Headed Geese, Ruddy Shelduck, Greylag Geese, Shoveller, Falcated Duck, Gadwall and the Red Crested Pochard.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit Kaziranga National Park is from 15 November onwards till 10 April. During this time wild animals can be viewed in abundance and the terrain is also suitable for venturing out into the park. During the monsoons the park remains closed. As the park is located on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra, during monsoons the river over flows its banks which results in flooding of the grasslands and swamplands. Even I, a hard core adventure sports enthusiast would not recommend you to test the power of the mighty Brahmaputra.
