Kaziranga National Forest Guidebook

Kaziranga is best known for its rhinos, but its fortress home has also protected a whole range of herbivores including this sambar deer seen framed elegantly by its verdant forest.
Grasslands are the backbone of Kaziranga’s success and that of the rhino. The highest density of rhinos exists in the southwestern part of the park where short grass meadows are most extensive.
The Oriental Pied Hornbill Anthracoceros albirostris, is one among three hornbill species found in the park.

A child of the Brahmaputra river, the Kaziranga Biosphere Reserve is one of the most incredible ecosystems in the world. The interplay of the river and its tributaries results in a mosaic of tall elephant grass and forests that give rise to a vast diversity of insects, birds and animals.
