Kaziranga Tiger Sanctuary

Home Page

Kaziranga National Park is located in the far North East of India in the state of Assam. Part of its northern border runs parallel with the mighty Brahmaputra river which has caused several severe floods over the years in the low lying park land.

Poaching has also been a problem, though in recent years international attention and fund raising has contributed to better equipped park guards who bravely protect the park from unscrupulous gangs.Indian One-Horned Rhino

A tiger safari in Kaziranga National Park may not produce the regularity of sightings witnessed in parks such as Bandhavgarh and Ranthambhore, but the atmospheric nature of the early morning elephant safaris and spectacular bird life, make this the must see wildlife attraction in the quiet state of Assam in India's exotic North East.

In addition, the success story of Kaziranga is one we never tire of telling. To take a population of only 12 Rhino's in the early 20th century and reach a figure of close to 2000 now, is the greater conservation story in India's history. There is no doubt without the bravery and fierce determination of Kaziranga's park guards, that this sanctuary would now be devoid of all wildlife and probably turns into agricultural land or exploited by the mining mafia. So when you take a tiger tour through this beautiful park, think of all the sacrifices made by those men and women.

Kaziranga has a core area of approximately 400 sq km and is open from mid-October until the end of April; for some reason it has always closed earlier than most other tiger sanctuaries, so planning is important to arrive there are the best time for wildlife sightings. There are 3 main routes inside the park - western, central and eastern; with the central zone tending to produce the best chance of seeing tigers on your tiger safari. The eastern zone eventually leads you to the magnificent Brahmaputra and a chance to see Gangetic River Dolphins.Great Pied Hornbill

Kaziranga is a spectacular park for birds, with the combination of lofty mature trees and many water bodies, it attracts many raptors, including Brahminy kite, Pallas's Fishin Eagle, Grey-Headed Fishing Eagle and Pied Harrier. As well as a good population of tigers, there is the chance to see leopard, jungle cat, jackal, hog deer and of course the majestic, heavily armored One-Horned Indian Rhino. The combination of very early morning extended elephant safaris through the elephant grass, followed by morning and afternoon jeep safaris, make a tiger tour here, action packed and full of Indian wildlife.

Most people fly into Kolkata first, before taking an onward flight to either Guwahati or Jorhat. We would recommend combining a stay in Kaziranga with Assam's other wildlife sanctuaries, such as Manus, Nameri, Jaipur Forest and the Gibbon Sanctuary. This will allow you to see an even greater diversity of Indian wildlife; such as Golden Langur in Manas and stump-tailed macaque in the Gibbon Sanctuary.

Wildlife Trails stayed at the famous Wild Grass Resort back in 2002 and many of our client have enjoyed stays there since; the owner and his son had a great passion for birds in those days. However there are also new resorts offering a greater degree of comfort such as the Nature Hut Eco-Camp. So now is the time to seize the moment and book a tiger safari in the North East of India with Wildlife Trails and discover a side of India far from the main tourist trails; but with so much to offer.
