A Jeep Safari experience in Kaziranga National Park ~
At Kaziranga National Park, we organize many Jeep Safari experience for our esteemed guests. Our team owns Jeeps here that are registered with the Jeep Safari association of Kaziranga National Park and we are able to successfully conduct Jeep Safaris here at Kaziranga. Jeep Safari into Kaziranga National Park is conducted across four (4) ranges of the Park at Central range (Kohora), Western range (Bagori), Eastern range (Agoratoli) and the Burapahar range (Ghorakati). Our Jeep safari ride lasts for about an hour and a half after entry into the park and a large part of the interiors of Kaziranga National Park can be covered by this Jeep Safari across each of the Safari ranges. The most popular among the four ranges covered by Jeep Safari are the Kohora and Bagori ranges. The Eastern range and the Burapahar range are slightly away from the main center area of Kaziranga National Park at Kohora and the rush here is less as well. All the ranges are good for animal sighting especially the Indian One Horned Rhinoceros of Kaziranga National Park. Agoratoli range may offer you a chance to spot Tigers, Wild Elephants and various species of birds here at Kaziranga National Park.
We narrate to our esteemed readers and future guests at Kaziranga National Park one of our Jeep Safari experiences with our guests from Bangalore. We had finished our Elephant Safari ride at the Bagori Safari range of Kaziranga National Park by 7.30 AM and returned to our guest house at Kohora by 8 AM. We freshened up and had a quick breakfast and scheduled to leave by 8.45 AM from the place to go for a Jeep Safari ride into the interiors of Kaziranga National Park at the Kohora (Central) Safari range. Krishna our team member who had also arranged for our Elephant Safari arrived with the Jeep in front of our guest house and the five of us would go for a ride at Kohora safari range. The Jeep would take us along the designated jeep safari circuit route at the Kohora Safari range starting from Mihimukh – Kathpora – Daflang -Diffalu river bank – Monabeel -Kerasing and back with designated stop at Kathpora Tower, Daflang Tower and Kerasing Tower.
We reached the safari entrance gate at the Kohora range and we could see a few Jeeps waiting ahead of us making their entry at the Safari gate. At the Kohora Safari range of Kaziranga National Park Indian nationals (non VIPs) are allowed to go for a Jeep Safari ride into the park interiors. We showed our entrance tickets at the gate and started on our Jeep safari ride. The roads are not plain and the ride gets bumpy as well. The Jeep is an all open ride and once you enter the park you can stand behind to admire the varied flora and fauna of Kaziranga National Park.
Just on entering the Jeep safari route at Kohora we got lucky and sighted a wild Asiatic water buffalo crossing the road ahead of us. The driver halted the jeep for a while and we admired the creature taking its walk along the wilderness of Kaziranga National Park. A little while into the Jeep safari ride we spotted few deers grazing ahead of us. Small animals these deers once inhabited various forests and wildlife reserves across the State of Assam. But with uncontrolled hunting their population have now been reduced to smaller numbers inside the protected National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries of Assam. We continued on our Jeep Safari ride into Kaziranga National Park and next up we sighted wild boars and jungle fowls in an open area here. All along the way we also sighted the One Horned Rhinoceros from a distance grazing in the open fields of Kaziranga National Park. We thought we could get lucky by being able to sight the Rhinoceros very close to us but it didn’t happen as yet.
Next up we spotted a herd of Wild Elephants bathing at a poolside here on our Jeep Safari ride at Kaziranga National Park. These mighty beasts looked amazing and we waited for a while to click pictures. We also spotted various birds like lesser adjutant stork, black necked crane, barbets, egrets, parakeets, kingfishers, etc. While coming back on our Jeep safari ride we got lucky and we spotted a rhinoceros crossing our path. The driver slowed down the jeep and allowed the animal to cross the road. It went to a side behind the trees and we got lucky to click pictures from the Jeep. It was an amazing ride here at Kaziranga National Park and we were fortunate to have sighted many animals species in one ride alone. We came out of the park at around 10.30 AM. We thanked the Jeep Safari driver for an amazing ride here in Kaziranga National Park and also Mr. Krishna for all the trouble taken in arranging our safari ride into Kaziranga National Park. We headed back to our guest house taking a bouquet full of memories of our Jeep Safari ride in Kaziranga National Park.
