Located in Nagaon and Golaghat districts of the Indian state, Assam, Kaziranga National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Among the Kaziranga attractions are the one-horned rhinoceroses that fascinate tourists visiting this wildlife reserve every year. Besides the rhinos, travellers can also find a sizeable population of tigers, swamp deer, elephants and wild water buffaloes. Birdlife International, a global partnership that works towards conservation of birds and their habitats, has recognized Kaziranga as an Important Bird Area. This national park has achieved commendable success in conservation of wild animals and birds as compared to other protected areas in the country.
Vast expanses of tall elephant grass, dense tropical forests, and marshland can be found in this region during a Kaziranga wildlife safari conducted with the help of elephants. Small bodies of water and major rivers crisscrossing the wildlife reserve support diverse varieties of flora and fauna. Visitors can watch their favourite species of wild animals, birds and reptiles in action while touring this national park on an elephant. Those who wish to cover most of the areas in Kaziranga within a short period of time can choose a Jeep Safari. All wildlife tours are conducted by trained nature guides, who have an excellent knowledge of the wildlife sanctuary.
