Kaziranga Elephant Safari

Here we are sharing information on Kaziranga Elephant safari which is popular event among tourists. Kaziranga national park is located in Assam which receives good volume of rainfall. National park lies in flood-plains of Brahmaputra river and almost every year receives flood water which nourishes these plains. Here forest is dense and nestles many rare wildlife species. Here tourists can enjoy two types of safaris i.e. jeep safari and elephant safari. Both the safari drives offer adventurous experience. Jeep safari and Elephant safari drives are necessity to well explore this tiger reserve as both the drives have their own advantage & limitations. Wild elephant herds are present in Assam jungles due to which their availability is easy for safari drives and thus elephant safari is easily available tourists at reasonable cost which is not possible in other popular tiger reserves where wild elephant population is not available and they have to purchase them from other states at high cost and thus safari drive is rarely offered to tourists.

Why to do Elephant Safaris ?
As we all know that Kaziranga national park lies in flood plains due to which here we can find dense vegetation which includes bushes, grasslands, wetlands etc. due to which such areas are not accessible by safari jeeps. Prime attraction of Kaziranga i.e. One horned rhinos are usually found in grasslands of such marshy zones due to which their better sighting & photography is possible through such elephant safari drives. These safaris allows us to penetrate such dense grasslands, wetlands and explore some core regions which is not possible through jeep safaris. Similarly in our urban life-style we will can rarely see elephants and thus no question of getting experience of riding elephant back. Kaziranga national park is known for high tiger density but due to dense vegetation, its sighting is not good and thus elephant safari enhances the probability to see tigers in their natural home.
