A Pioneering adventure to two of India’s most exciting national parks: Namdapha and Kaziranga in the hill states of north-east has always held a very special attraction for nature lovers. Travelling through remote areas with limited tourist infra-structure. The roads are poorly maintained, hotels and rest houses are basic. On the plus side, walking, which is strictly restricted in most Indian Tiger Reserves, is encouraged in Namdapha and permitted in parts of Kaziranga. This means that we can truly immerse ourselves in exceptional wildlife viewing opportunities on offer during this adventurous expedition!

Kazaringa is famous for its 1000 strong population of One-horned Rhinoceros and wild Water Buffalo, but the reserve rivals Bharatpur for wetland birds and supports localized and endangered grassland species such as Swamp Partridge and Bengal Florican. Kazingra is divided into three ranges each with its own character and highlights. The popular central range supports higher densities of rhino, elephant and Water Buffalo, but it is the eastern range which offers some of the most exciting and varied wildlife-watching in Kaziranga. At Sohola bheel we should see Greater Adjutant Stork, Pallas and Grey headed Fishing Eagle and a great variety of waterfowl. Otters are frequently seen on a nearby river, and the woodlands harbour woodpeckers, Fairy Bluebirds, flocks of Spot-winged Stares, warblers and much more.
