A walk through the Kaziranga National Park would get you close to the four-legged beasts strolling in their might amidst tall trees and dense forests. It is a home to the endangered one-horned rhinoceros along with other large animals like the tiger or the elephant. This national park has had a very interesting history. It came into being in 1908 when Lord Curzon's wife, failing to spot a single rhino, insisted on getting a reserved area built for these animals. Over the years it gained stature as a national park and is now a UNESCO Heritage Site.
Located in the Golaghat and Nagaon district of Assam, Kaziranga experiences moderate to hot climate throughout the year and remains closed during the months of June to August due to incessant rains. This national park boasts of a great flora as well as fauna. Take a stroll here and you may spot the one-horned rhino, the Royal Bengal tiger or even the Indian elephant walking in the inundated grasslands or savanna woodlands. The adventurous elephant safari is a must-do while in Kaziranga.
