Relaxed time - there is more to a Kaziranga than just the Rhino!

April is not at all a bad time to visit Kaziranga. Particular if you time your visit to coinside with the Bihu festivities. Around April Assam celebrates one of the three annual Bihu festivals. The Bihu celebrated in April is called Bohag Bihu ( the Bihu in the month of Bohag or Baisakh) or Rongali Bihu (Rongali meaning merriment in Ahomia! . . You will catch the glimpses of Assamese dances. Young people of Assam having a week of dancing and fun at the start of sowing season. And yes the rains are still a few weeks away, the National Park is open to help you get a rendezvous with Rhino! And you miss the crowds expected earlier in the season! Plan your trip carefully though! If you do want to visit Majuli, do not try to get a ferry on the Bihu day to avoid disappointment A perfect holiday

Great place for kids and adults

Beautiful place and fantastic weather. Elephant safari and jeep safari are great. National park is closed for tourists from 1st of may of every year and hence book your tickets accordingly. Hotels and resorts are good. It is an awesome experience to see single horned rhinoes and elephants at such a short distance from oneself

Kaziranga Overview

Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located in the Golaghat and Nagaon districts in the state of Assam. It was declared a Reserve Forest in 1905. The park consists of an area of 429.93 sq km with a buffer area of 429.40 sq km.

During the British reign, Lady Curzon on a safari expressed concern at the prevalence of hunting in the park. In 1926, hunting was banned in Kaziranga and in 1974 it was declared a National Park. Kaziranga is also famous for the Important Bird Area by Birdlife International for conservation of avifaunal species. Some of the bird species which can be spotted here are herons, storks, pelicans, imperial eagles, etc.

The park hosts about two-thirds of the world's Great One-horned Rhinoceroses and also holds the record for protecting the highest density of tigers in the world. The park was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006. Kaziranga is a home to large breeding population of elephants, wild water buffalo and swamp deer. The location of the park makes it diverse as it is lined by the Eastern Himalaya biodiversity hotspot.

Kaziranga has large bioreserves of tall elephant grass, marshland and dense tropical moist broad leaf forests. The park celebrated its centennial in 2005 after its establishment in 1905 as a Reserve Forest. The park is maintained by the Assam Forest Department and Wildlife Trust of India along with the International Fund for Animal Welfare who have set up rehabilitation centres for distressed animals. Every year, an Elephant Festival is organised at the park to create awareness about the protection and conservation of Asiatic elephants.

Kaziranga National Park can be visited from November to April. Elephant safaris and Kaziranga Wildlife Tours can be availed at the park. Kaziranga can be reached by bus from Guwahati and Tezpur. The nearest airport is at Tezpur (60 km) which has direct flights to Kolkata. The nearest railhead is at Guwahati.
