KAZIRANGA ITINERARY: DAY BY DAY
DAY 1: ARRIVE IN GUWAHATI
I would suggest taking an early morning flight from your departing city and arrive Guwahati by late morning. The reason is you will have a full day to roam in awesome Guwahati or better I will guide you to world famous The Kamakhya Temple.
Check-in my recommended best-priced hotel in the middle of the city for comfortable lodging in Guwahati while you explore the vibrant Guwahati’s cafe
DAY 2: DEPART TO KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK
Yes, after your hotel provided breakfast we will start our journey to the world-famed Kaziranga National Park on our pre-booked AC/Non AC Taxi ( We can make it private or shared cost basis). The total journey time would be approx 5 to 6 hrs and surely we gonna take a break to taste the authentic Assamese food on our way to Kaziranga
REACH KAZIRANGA & CHECK-IN THE HOTEL
If we stick to our plan, we will be reaching to Kaziranga by later afternoon and immediately you will be checked in to pre-booked comfortable hotel or resort. We are not going to rush in for safari today & I strongly suggest you relax & enjoy the calm and vibrant jungle around you. Listen to the stories of Kaziranga and Rhinos by the local and experience the magic of staying around them.
After a great dinner, let’s do some brisk walk around the property and enjoy the environment excluding noise and air pollution. Before going to bed, remember we have to wake up the very early morning for your much-awaited Kaziranga safari.
DAY 3: KAZIRANGA MORNING SAFARI
At 7 am sharp, we will enter the gates of the jungle. You are not allowed to take private vehicles beyond this point. We will have to go on pre-booked Jeep for the jungle safari. These trips take close to 1-2 hours. As we will go deeper into the wilderness, the view became more and more fascinating.
Hear the songs of the birds and the smell of the wildflowers that will make it even more mesmerizing. Mostly after about 15 minutes, we might witness (not guaranteed though) the first Great One-horned Rhino grazing in the grass field in all its grandeur. What a sight it will be. At around 10 AM we will head back to our hotel/resort after a great sightseeing and enjoy our experience.
LATER IN THE DAY ELEPHANT SAFARI (OPTIONAL)
The Elephant safari is optional and is opened from 5:30 to 7:30 in the morning and 3:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon. You will get a new dimension and experience while doing Elephant Safari in Kaziranga Park. However, if you are against animal cruelty you can happily opt out of it and re-peat jeep safari in Kaziranga for the late afternoon slot

LATER IN THE EVENING
Based on your interest level, we can do some wildlife activities in Kaziranga. We will be covering destinations which are close to National park
1. ORCHID & BIODIVERSITY PARK
The first place we will go to after the park safari was the Orchid and Biodiversity Park that is about 2 km away from Kohora.This place is a paradise for all those who love gardening. Spread across 16 bighas of land this Orchid farm, houses 500 variety of orchid species that is found only in northeast India.
2. ETHNIC VILLAGE: IDENTITY OF LOCAL PEOPLE
About 10 minutes away from Orchid Park amidst the serenity of nature, lies the quiet and beautiful Ethnic village. This village is a unique initiative taken by the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council to showcase the lifestyle of the ethnic groups of the Karbi-Anglong district.
We will then return to our resort and then just relax, roam and cherish the experience you will have during the jungle safari. Later, we will have our delicious dinner and call off our day
DAY 4: DEPART FROM KAZIRANGA
After early breakfast in the hotel, we will check out and bid adieu to lovely Kaziranga and head towards Guwahati. Don’t get dishearten and we will visit a couple of lovely places and they are-
1. TEA GARDENS OF KAZIRANGA
About half an hour later and headed towards Guwahati. On our way back home, We will thoroughly enjoy the view of the lush green tea gardens on both sides of the road. You can stop by any of these gardens and talk a walk around, fancying the beauty of these gardens. There are many tea gardens and factories too around this area. If you love tea gardens, then a visit to one of these can be really fulfilling.
2. THE KAZIRANGA GOLF RESORT
Another fantastic place to visit here is the Kaziranga Golf Resort. This beautiful resort has been built in the heart of a tea estate in Jorhat. The golf course at this resort was designed by a leading golf course architect. The clubhouse also has a professional golf academy and a well-equipped golf pro shop.

FINAL WORDS & BEFORE I SIGN OFF
