Overview

Hello Backpackers!

From Elephant safari to witnessing the one-horned rhinos, Kaziranga National Park offers arguably the best safari in India. One can indulge in two kinds of safaris – Elephant and Jeep. Elephant safari, that needs one to book well ahead in advance, starts usually early in the morning and is shorter in duration but one gets to experience of riding an elephant. Jeep safari offers the benefit of covering a vast expanse in a short span of time.

The national park is open from November through out the winter & good part of summer. It is closed with the onset of monsoons in North East – usually by mid March.

The rhinos, the elephants and the migratory birds simply make it an outstanding experience. It’s a place worth ticking off the bucket list.
