Located on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra River in the far North East of India, Assam, Kaziranga National Park covers an area of approximately 430 sq. km. This park is one of the last areas in eastern India undisturbed by human presence and the oldest park in Assam. It is inhabited by the world’s largest population of one-horned rhinoceros, as well as many mammals, including tigers, elephants, panthers and bears and thousands of birds. The park is open from November to April. Tourists can take rides on elephants to move around in the park or cruise in a boat on the Brahmaputra along the park.
