Measuring about 154 square miles, or 400 square kilometers, Kaziranga National Park spans fertile valleys and grasslands. Bordered on two sides by the mighty Brahmaputra River, Kaziranga is also home to a staggering breadth of plant and wildlife, among them the Asian one-horned rhinoceros, as well as the Asian elephant and Bengal tiger (the latter is quite rare).
Given its biodiversity, Kaziranga is an excellent safari destination; the best time to visit is during the park’s brief, dry and mild winter, which runs from November to February.
