About Kaziranga National Park
An unsurpassed utopian paradise of nature, the Kaziranga National Park is the most sought after wildlife holiday destinations in India, for nature and wildlife. Founded on the proposal of Mary Curzon, Kaziranga turned into a forest reserve, from a modest area of 230 km2, to protect the declining species of the greater one-horned rhinos. Nestled around the tributaries of the River Brahmaputra, the park attracts nearly 82 percentile of visitors every year, in Assam.
Bordered between the Eastern Himalayan biodiversity hotspots of Golaghat and Nagaon district in Assam, the present-day Kaziranga National Park is a wildlife sanctuary of 430 km2, and is globally famous for the one-horned rhinos (or Indian Rhinos), from being extinct. Initially at the brink of extinction, the greater one-horned rhinos are a conservation success in India, with a steady increase from 600 endangered species, to a thriving 2200 rhinos at Kaziranga in 2015.
Declared as a National Park in 1974 by the Indian Central Government, Kaziranga is an ideal breeding ground for elephants, tigers, birds, deer, rhinos, and many others, owing to its rich environmental habitat. In 1974, UNESCO put Kaziranga on the global map, by listing the park as a World Heritage Site, and over the years, with the increase in number of tigers, the government declared Kaziranga as a tiger reserve in 2006.
Densely rich with alluvial grasslands, tropical evergreen and deciduous forests, Kaziranga is home to migratory birds such as Asian openbill Stork, and the Black-necked Stork from Central Asia, and also to Sloth bear, swamp deer, Leopard, and wild buffaloes. Elephant safari rides are the highlight of the park tour, and is the best option to spot rhinos than Jeep Safari, and winters are the best season from Nov-Feb, to spot one-horned rhinos and bird watching tours.
