Kaziranga National Park

Sprawling over 430 square kilometres, Kaziranga National Park is the major attraction in Assam, a little-visited north-eastern state which shares borders with Bangladesh and Bhutan, and is linked to the rest of India by a narrow corridor of land. It is one of the last bastions of the endangered great Indian one-horned rhinoceros, whose population was believed to have dropped to just 12 in the 1950s but has since increased to more than 2,300. The park also has the world's highest density of the Royal Bengal Tiger – one per 5 sq km.

Kaziranga’s stunningly beautiful landscape comprises savannah grassland, the green and fertile plains of the Brahmaputra River, as well as evergreen, moist deciduous and swamp forests. It is a haven for over 300 species of birds, as well as wild elephants, Asiatic wild buffalos, tigers, leopards, sloth bears and many deer species.

Recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kaziranga National Park is one of the best parks in the country and it is a paradise for those who are passionate about wildlife and the environment. Kaziranga was created as a forest reserve in 1905 and it is now considered a huge conservation success story – however, poaching still remains a threat.

Aside from wildlife viewing, Kaziranga has a number of interesting activities for visitors. Go on a dolphin safari on the Brahmaputra to see the endangered and playful Gangetic Dolphin. We can arrange trips to local villages to witness the lives of these tribal people, who are made up of three different tribes: Bodo, Mising and Karbi. There are also rubber plantation walks and tours of the beautiful Assam tea gardens to be enjoyed.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
