United 21 Grassland Resort, Kaziranga Assam

Kaziranga National Park is one of the only two parks in India wherein you could find one-horned rhinoceros. The park stretches up to 430 sq. km. between Nagaon and Golaghat district of Assam. Along with one-horned rhinoceros the national park is also inhabited with tigers, elephants, panthers, bears, wild buffalo and swamp deer.

You will be thrilled to experience your wild life safari in here. There are two options of Safari, Elephant and Jeep safaris. You could choose the option of Elephant safari till November as you would get a chance to trail in tall elephant grasses which surely would be a unique experience. After November the grass die and is burned so a Jeep Safari would be ideal to spot wild life. There are many options of accommodations available in and around the park. From budget hotels to star resorts have been set up in the area to provide accommodations for tourists.
