Nameri National Park

Nameri National Park, covering an area of about 200 square kms, is located at the foothills of the eastern Himalayas in the Sonitpur District of Assam, 35 km from Tezpur, which is the nearest town. The park is one of three tiger reserves in Assam, along with Manas and Kaziranga, and it is a haven for many rare animals. The rich wildlife includes tiger, black bear, elephant, leopard, Indian bison, pangolin, Indian wild dog, civet cat and capped langur.

Also found here are over 300 species of birds - including the endangered white winged wood duck, the great pied hornbill and the blue-bearded bee-eaters – and the park specialised in birdwatching jungle treks. Sadly, this area faces danger from poachers who hunt valuable birds for their wings. Elephant poaching is also a continuing issue due to conflicts with cattle grazers.

The area was formerly heavily logged, but Nameri was established as a forest reserve in 1978 and set up as Nameri Sanctuary in 1985, eventually being officially established as a national park in 1998. Best visited from November to March, Nameri is a superb spot for wildlife lovers to enjoy rich natural beauty and diverse flora and fauna. Visitors can also enjoy river rafting in Jia Bharali river at Nameri National Park.

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 thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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
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.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North 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
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.
- Matthew Nicklin, 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
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
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!
