“Kaziranga National Park”
Reviewed 25 May 2011

This was my first ever visit to Assam and I will remember it for a long time... the plains of Assam are fresh green and endlessly vast... impress a lot... The place is very clean and people appear to live a much cleaner and comfortable life ...

Kaziranga leaves beautiful impression as the reserve offers you a truly great landscape with lots and lots of wild rhinos, wild elephants, buffalos, swamp deers etc. etc...
the place does not have monkeys it seems ( for there are no fruit trees suitable for monkeys looks like.. atleast I did not spot any)...

Brahmputra river crosses the national park... and the area around the river is also full of exotic birds... We spotted a lot of Pelicans there...
... and there are plenty of lakes too in the park that have lots of fish in them...

As per 2006 count there could be 80/90 tigers in the park...in real wild habitat... We just missed it... the jeep coming after us spotted the tiger...

The road from Guwahati to Kaziranga is flanked by endless tea gardens on both sides that makes the journey surreal...

The lodges are superb and there is no clutter whatsoever... nice place to stay for 2/3 days...We stayed in Prashanti... close to central range and enjoyed the stay ... the place was comfortable, peaceful and wonderful...
We went into the park wice on an open jeep ( Gypsy from Maruti) with a driver and a gunman ( second time a gunwoman actually... :-))

At 5 am in the morning we went into the park riding an elephant...it takes random route and goes close to swamps and lakes... to see the animals more closely...

“Dhansiri Eco Camp Kaziranga Bokakhat Assam”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

"Wilderness" is the key in the Dhansari eco camp in Bokakhat, Assam adjacent to the Kariranga National Park (Agoratoli section). We were there for 2 nights at the camp (resort). The LOCATION CANNOT BE ANY BETTER. Situated in the banks of the Dhansari river where it meets the Brahmaputra, and just a stone's throw from the national park, and yet away from civilization is the unique selling proposition of the place. The approach road is an unpaved village path only suited for SUV/Jeep. The place has no internet access and no electricity. There are CFLs in the cottages that are run on battery and they go out at 10-10:30pm. One way it is good as you can "enjoy" the starlit sky and appreciate nature, but personally think there should be light inside the rooms, if not outside. Very simple homemade food is served, but is expensive, even by Guwahati (capital of Assam). We liked the boat and were interested in the night stay but unfortunately had to back out as my mom was not keeping very well. each cottage is RS. 1200.00 per night which is OK considering the scenery that you enjoy in the morning....absolutely fabulous.

“A must Visit for all Wildlife Enthusiasts”
Reviewed 7 October 2010

The place is a haven for the one horned Rhino. its vast grasslands & swampy water provide the idea habitat. the park is well managed but poorly guarded leading to rampant poaching & infringement by locals.

You must do the Gypsy safari & also the elephant safari. i recommend you do the early morning Elephant safari as it has the maximum chances of you running into large hordes of rhinos during their early morning rituals, otherwise during the day they prefer to stay out of the sun & sleep in the shade.

“Great experience for flora and fauna”
Reviewed 26 August 2010

The Karziranga Park is very much worth a visit. You can see many animals close up. Elephants, Rhino, Bufallo, if you are lucky a Tiger. It is also a paradise for birds, too many to name.
Wild orchids and many other flowers can be seen in the park.
Visited End of March with children. The rainy season was just about to start, but we could go for two safaries a day without problem.
