Are you a wildlife lover? Do you love to explore new places and experience new cultures? Then Assam is the place to go. Blessed with an abundance of national parks like the Manas National Park, Kaziranga National Park, Orang National Park, Nameri National Park, and Dibru-Saikhowa National Park, it is a wildlife lover’s dream destination. Among the many, Kaziranga National Park, Assam is the most popular. It is spread over an area of 430 sq km, is the habitat of the world’s largest population of one-horned rhinoceroses as well as many mammals including tigers, elephants, panthers, and bears. Kaziranga National Park, Assam, is also home to thousands of bird species. No wonder, Kaziranga National Park, Assam, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its unique natural environment.
Kaziranga National Park is about a 5-hour drive from Guwahati in Golaghat in the Nagaon district of Assam. There are many hotels, lodges and, resorts in Kaziranga that you can check into a day before your safari, which tends to start early in the morning. If you are an early riser, do opt for the Elephant safari which begins as early as 5 am. If not, you can always get on a jeep safari which is equally exciting. The park is divided into 4 zones and the jeep takes you through them all. The safaris are regulated and controlled by the Forest Department (Government of Assam) and can be booked through them directly or through travel agents, or even hotel desks.
The next day you can enjoy a scenic drive along, and a ferry ride across the Brahmaputra river to visit Majuli, the cultural capital of Assam and also the largest river island in the world. It is home to tribals with a unique culture. You can experience this through a visit to the Satras, institutional centers for the preservation of traditional indigenous practices and culture of the Assamese society, which is still practiced here. You can spend the night at a homestay to accentuate your cultural immersion with good hospitality. You can choose to return back to Kaziranga the next day and take a spa day at some wonderful resorts here before you head back or take a longer drive down to Guwahati and spend the evening indulging in shopping for souvenirs and local goodies.
