An excellent mix of habitats that support healthy populations of the Great Indian One horned Rhinoceros, the Asian Elephant, the Wild water Buffalo, Swamp Deer and plenty of other herbivores as well as rich bird life, Kaziranga is a UNESCO World Heritage Site!
Spread over an area of about 430 square kilometer, this region is a mosaic of
elephant-grass meadows, swampy lagoons and dense forests. In 1985 it was declared as the World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the year 2006, the park was declared as Tiger Reserve.
Undoubtedly, this is the best place to see and photograph the Great Indian One-horned Rhinoceros in its natural habitat. The sheer number of animals one gets to see at Kaziranga is surely greater than any other wildlife reserves in India!
The park is located along the mighty river Brahmaputra and is divided into 4 ranges – Central, Western, Eastern and Burapahar range. Kaziranga is recognized as an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International for the Conservation of Avifaunal species. Kaziranga experiences massive flooding every year and hence is closed for tourists during the monsoon months. November to March is the best time to visit this exceedingly beautiful forest.
