Located on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra River in the far northeast of India, Kaziranga National Park covers approximately 166 square miles. Its swamps and tall thickets of elephant grass make it the ideal habitat for the endangered one-horned rhino. Other wildlife attractions you may find on this four-day Kaziranga travel package include a large population of Indian bison, Indian elephants, tigers, leopards, otters, wild boar and a variety of birds.
Delhi / Guwahati / Kaziranga
After breakfast, we transfer to the airport for our flight to Guwahati. Upon arrival we board our vehicles and travel to Kaziranga National Park, where it becomes apparent that the people of Assam have a more pronounced Asian influence than those of any place we have visited. Assam is the biological crossroads for the flora and fauna of the Malay Peninsula, China, Himalayas and the Indian subcontinent. Here, the forests are primarily tropical evergreen rather than the deciduous type found in dryer areas. We arrive late afternoon at the Diphlu River Lodge for dinner and the night. (B,L,D)
Kaziranga National Park
Our Kaziranga expedition features morning and afternoon wildlife excursions by open Jeep. Kaziranga National Park is 166 square miles, centering around bottomlands covered by elephant grass savannahs. In the hills and along the small streams, dense forests grow with epiphytic orchids and ferns jutting from the trunks and branches of the great trees. Kaziranga was set aside to protect the great one-horned Asian rhinoceros. It is estimated that there are now less than 1,400 of these great beasts left in the wild, and more are found here than anywhere else. The thrill of coming within a few yards of one of these gray armored hulks is truly exhilarating. Wild Asian elephant herds are present within the grasslands of the park, as are large herds of barasingha, hog deer and wild Asian buffalo. We spend both nights of our Kaziranga tour at Diphlu River Lodge. (B,L,D Daily)
Kaziranga National Park / Guwahati / Delhi
After breakfast, we depart for Guwahati, where we board our flight to Delhi. Upon arrival, we transfer to the Radisson Hotel for dinner before departing on our late evening flight to the U.S. (B,D)
