National Park

About - Kaziranga National Park

Declared as a world heritage site, Kaziranga is situated in the Golaghat and Nagaon districts of Assam. Famous for the mighty Bhramaputra river, and highest population of the Great one- horned rhinoceros, the park is a photographer’s delight due to the wonderful sighting opportunity of wildlife around the marshes and shallow pools that form an important geographical feature of the park. Apart from the rhinoceros, the park is home to 35 species of mammals, 479 species of birds (which includes both residential as well as migratory) and 42 species of reptiles. 


An important species apart from the Rhinoceros in this landscape is the tiger and the park is famed to have the highest density of the cat. Kaziranga owes its biodiverse fauna (also referred to as the biodiversity hotspot) to the diverse landscape consisting of rivers, ponds, marshes, elephant grass, grasslands and reed beds. Some of the floral varieties found in the forest include Indian gooseberry, cotton tree, Kumbhi and elephant apple. 


There are said to be four zones in the park that can be visited by tourists namely; Central Safari Zone (Kohora), Western Safari Zone (Bagori) , Eastern Safari Zone (Agaratoli) and Burapahar Safari Zone (Ghoraghati). While the Central zone and Western zone are most preferred by tourists, visiting every zone has an opportunity for a distinct wildlife experience.

Best Time To Visit Kaziranga National Park

The best time to visit Kaziranga is between November to April. For the remaining time of the year the park is closed for any tourism activity due to the rainy season. Due to the heavy rain in the area, the region tends to get flooded due to the swelling of the Brahmaputra as most part of the forest is located in and around the Brahmaputra River floodplains.


All tiger reserves have a core and buffer zone. While the core zone is reserved for the flora and fauna of the reserve to thrive devoid of human interference or habitation, the buffer consists of villages, human habitation and activities of agriculture etc.
