Jeep Safari in Kaziranga National Park

Kaziranga National Park is the oldest wildlife reserve in Assam, covering a vast area and consisting of numerous species of plants, animals and birds. This national park has achieved great success in conserving several endangered species of animals such as one-horned rhinoceros and wild water buffalo. Visitors to these parks can watch these wild animals and birds closely with the help of wildlife safaris that are conducted regularly during tourist seasons. Kaziranga National Park gets plenty of tourists every year, who come from different corners of this world to sight the amazing wildlife of this region. Many of them love to see endangered species during their wildlife safaris. Many hotels and resorts around this region offer these tours as a part of their added amenities. Best time to visit Kaziranga National Park is between the months of October and April, when its climate is pleasant and favourable for conducting sightseeing tours. It is during this period that most of the animals can be seen having a nice time in the wild.

Wildlife tours in this region are conducted either on elephants or in Jeeps. Elephant Safaris begin early in the morning and are extremely helpful in exploring different types of wild animals. They place tourists in an appropriate position so that their view is not obstructed by tall elephant grass by which this wildlife reserve is covered. Generally, a wakeup call is given about half an hour before the elephant ride commences. Individuals who are eager to explore the jungle with a Jeep Safari in Kaziranga can cover longer distances within a short period of time. These tours are accompanied by trained nature guides or escorts and take three to four hours. These wildlife tours are carried out without causing any disturbance to wildlife in the national park. There are specific routes on which the jeeps are run, maintaining the right distance between animals and humans. For any of such tours, permission from authorities is absolutely essential. Due to this reason, tourists obtain necessary permits before entering this wildlife sanctuary. Drivers of jeeps are required to stick to the trails that have been designed to avoid contact between animals and visitors.

It is necessary to observe certain rules that ensure a safe and enjoyable tour for visitors during jungle safaris. Tourists who book accommodations in Jungle Lodge and Resorts must be well aware of them. Drivers are required to drive slowly during jeep safaris to avoid causing any disturbance to animals. Playing of car stereos or transistors is strictly prohibited, as animals would easily get distracted with such sounds. Wearing of less bright clothes would also go a long way in preventing animals from getting distracted. Tourists must be careful not to light any campfires as they can scare most of the animals. Authorities have taken great efforts in maintaining a pollution-free environment in this region. Due to this reason, visitors are required to dispose off any garbage into bags that are provided. Taking photos is something that tourists can enjoy without any restrictions and they can take away unlimited memories with them.
