About Kaziranga National Park

Rhino, KAziranga National ParkKaziranga National Park in Assam India, is best-known as the home of the Indian Rhinoceros, declared a World Heritage Site, by UNESCO in 1985, Kaziranga National Park lies in the flood plains of the Brahmaputra River, and is flat country with elephant grass and shallow swamps interspersed with large patches of semi-evergreen forest.

Major Wildlife Attractions:

Welcome to the land of Rhinoceros Unicornis. The great Indian one-horned rhino, more than two tons of frightening muscle and tank-like belligerence. With its armour-plating hide and its 24” long horn- which really isn’t a horn, but compressed hair- is the major attraction of Kaziranga. Kaziranga is also one of the world's biggest conservation success stories - from 12 rhinos in 1908 to 1,700 This has put Kaziranga on the top of the world conservation map.

Apart from being the home of the one-horned rhino, Kaziranga is also the natural habitat of wild buffaloes, Asiatic Elephant, Indian Bison, wild boars, barasingha (Eastern swamp deer), leopards, tigers, Jackal, hoollock gibbons, capped langur, rock python, and monitor lizards. Although tigers inhabit this park, it is quite difficult to sight one.

Kaziranga National Park has more than 483 species of the birds. 18 of them are globally threatened species. Because of the varied habitat types that the Park comprises off as also of the strict protection accorded to them, birding is very special in Kaziranga. The Eastern range is very special for water birds such as Falcated Teals, White Eyed Pochard and Spot billed pelican. For Grass land birds the Western range is ideal. The Bengal Florican can be seen during the Elephant ride in this range.

The nearby Panbari Reserved Forest is good for primates such as Hoollock Gibbon and Capped Langur and also woodland birds such asYellow-vented Warbler, Great Hornbill, Dark necked Tailorbird, Grey-bellied and Slaty-bellied Tesias.

Other interesting birds include Green-backed Heron, Changeable Hawk-Eagle,Pied and Northern Harriers, Lesser and greater Adjutants, Black-necked Storks, Grey-headed and Pallas's Fish-eagle (common), Swamp Francolin common), Grey-headed Lapwing, Black-bellied tern, Black-breasted Thrush, Yellow-naped Woodpecker, etc
