One of the greatest wildlife emblems of the country, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kaziranga National Park, is famed as a home to two-thirds of the world's population of the rare one-horned rhinoceros. With the mighty Brahmaputra river lapping at the fringes, the park encompasses wetlands, forests and grasslands, which shelter a sizeable population of tigers as well. Moreover, the park is an abode of world-famous snakes - the rock python, the reticulated python and the king cobra, the longest venomous snake.

While eastern swamp deer and wild water buffalo are common sights, if you're lucky, you can also spot a herd of elephants making their way grandly through the park. One of the key attractions of the park are the 4WD safaris that help you explore the park better.
Located in the heart of Assam, the park was formed in 1908 on the recommendation of Mary Curzon, the wife of the then viceroy of India, Lord Curzon of Kedleston. It is an important area for migratory birds and also houses the endangered Ganges river dolphin. If you wish to take the safari on an elephant back, make sure you make advance bookings as this is the most popular way to explore the hidden gems of the national park. The park was declared as a tiger reserve in 2006, and is divided into five different ranges. The central Kohora range and western Bagori range offer the most amazing wildlife sightings. The park is surrounded by ancient temples, pristine waterfalls and lush tea estates
