Introducing Kaziranga National Park
One of India's best-known tourism mascots, the famed one-horned rhinoceros calls the expansive grasslands of this national park its native place. The park's population of 1800-odd rhinos (just 200 in 1904) represents more than two-thirds of the world’s total.
The park consists of a western, central and an eastern range, the central range doubling as the venue for the thoroughly enjoyable elephant safari, a must-do for anyone visiting Kaziranga. Lasting an hour each, these rides are especially satisfying when a ‘team’ of elephants makes pincer movements, surrounding rhinos without frightening them off.
