If you love nature, you'll love this place. After a short boat ride to cross the river Jia Bhorelli, enter in to dense forest. Have a small round trip with a guard and at the end you'll come to know that you covered almost 6 Km. Great.

Kaziranga National Park

Reviewed By Tissa010 - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

If you want to see rhinos once in your life, your best bet is to go to Kaziranga. It's a long way to travel (2 hour flight from Delhi, 5 hour drive) but absolutely worth it. The park is next to the mighty Brahmaputra river, which can cause a fog in the early morning, and has 3 main entrances. If you stay for 2 days you'll see all 3 parts which aren't interconnected by roads. You'll see dozens of rhinos, especially in the western part. Furthermore we saw elephants, wild water buffaloes (mostly east part), barasingha (aka swamp deer), hornbills, owls, pelicans, eagles, indian rollers and many other birds, turtles, hog deer and many other species. There are tigers in the park, but you have to be lucky to see one because of the high elephant grass. Leopards are even rarer.

Kaziranga National Park

Reviewed By sugees - Bengaluru, India

The kaziranga safari was in our bucket list for long time. The day we landed in kaziranga, it was heavily pouring and was little disappointed,whether we ll be able to spot one horned rhinos,for which the place is famous for. Luckily on day 2 mid morning, rain subsided and we went for the afternoon safari. It was an amazing experience and totally different from other sanctuary safaris. This place is of vast wetlands,with flat surfaces n lot of waterbodies, and few small islands formed in between these wetlands. We were so lucky, the moment we entered through western range, spotted a mother and a baby rhino. As we progressed inside spotted more of rhinos, swamp deer's n few wild buffalos. Elephants spotted were mostly tamed ones. We could spot golden eagle, Indian roller, spotted kingfisher,black oriole, plum headed parkeets and wag tail. The next day morning we took central range. This was the ultimate experience. Nature was in her perfect glory with abundant sunshine. The environment and lighting was every Photographer's delight.Able to spot rhinos,but the numbers were more in western range than here, buffalo and swamp deers. Spotted some beautiful birds like sunbird, spotted owl, black necked crane, grey herons etc. It was an never ending journey, so delightful, but we need end it as we have to return back to Shillong. Very memorable safari. We spotted all 4 out of 5 big fives of kaziranga except tiger. Their 5 big fives are wild buffalos,tigers, rhino, swamp deer and elephants.
