Could not visit Kaziranga ? Don't worry.Visit here to watch the rhinos moving here and there like cows & buffaloes. You will get a lot both from this forest through elephant ride & jeep ride.

I had visited this beautiful reserve last month. Pobitora is a wildlife reserve of Assam located in Morigaon district. The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is about 48 km by road from the capital of Assam. It has a dense population of the Great Indian one-horned rhinoceros. Pobitora was declared a reserved forest in 1971. So go for this beautiful reserve.

Road is good and the drive all along the river Brahmaputra is mesmerising. One can also stay in Resorts situated very near to the Sanctury. The early morning Elephant safari is very enjoyable and...

This sanctuary is just 60 km from airport and you are guaranteed to see rhinos. We went there from Brahmaputra jungle resort which is 30km away. We took our own jeep as we were 6. As we entered the park, we saw trees either sides with a small route in between. Rhinos were visible from very far. We went deep... More

The trip to pobitora was a bit disappointing for the price we had to pay for the safari i am not sure it was worth it went around the whole park and finally ended up seeing a few rhinos - we were expecting quite large numbers. the highlight of this trip was the excellent lunch served by a small hotel...

Pobitora wildlife sanctuary is located at outskirt of Guwahati City in Assam at a distance of around 40 km. The best way to visit is to hire a taxi to Pobitora from Guwahati and return on the same day. For visiting inside the sanctuary one can hire vehicles(Safari) readily available at the gate which have the necessary permission at reasonable... More
