Kaziranga National Park is a must visit for anyone who visits Assam. Famous for the one horned rhinos, Kaziranga is now also a tiger reserve and the number of tigers have risen in the past couple of years. You can feel experience nature closely, with the Jeep Safaris which are the most common. The elephant safaris are also very popular but booking must be done well in advance otherwise it is difficult to obtain the elephant rides. Whichever you choose, you will definitely spot rhinos, tigers, buffalos, deer and many exotic birds. It is especially exciting when your guide will spot the tracks of a tiger and follow its trail to catch a glimpse of it. Be sure to carry binoculars and hats, as the days can get really sunny in the afternoons. If you are lucky enough to get VIP access, you will be able to nights deep inside the reserve where most people are not allowed. Here you can hear the animals come close at night and if lucky you might catch a glimpse of them in their nocturnal half of the day. Also, make sure to book accommodations well in advance, as the resorts can quickly get booked during the on-season. Old resorts like 'Wildgrass' and newer ones like 'IORA' are well worth it.
Kaziranga national park is home to one horned rhino. Even though I wasn't able to see tigers and lions, it was an amazing experience to see elephants, deers, one horned rhino and different birds. We took an elephant ride in the morning and safari in the evening where we saw sunset amidst trees. Make sure to carry binoculars to get a closer look.
