The next day we embarked on our first safari in an open jeep along with our guide and a driver at 6.30 am in the morning. The short journey from the resort till the national park was very pleasant and the fresh smell of nature uplifted our moods. The Kaziranga National Park covers an area of 440 sq km and has 16 gates. The park is world famous for her inhabitants like deers, one horned Indian rhinoceros, wild elephants, water buffalo and the Royal Bengal Tiger. Kaziranga is also home to about 200 variety of birds like the Indian Roller, Jungle Fowl, Fish tail eagle, White tail eagle, the King fisher, Pelicans, Indian owl and also migratory birds like the Siberian Cranes etc. Such a breathtaking variety of wild life . My excitement to meet them was growing every minute.
