If you don’t have ample time in hand, then visit this place instead of Kaziranga. Elephant safari is at 6:30 am and 7:30 am. So if you are keen on spotting one-horned endangered rhinos, then don’t go later than 7:30 am. In case you do,...More

I went to Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary. Home to the densest population of One-horned Rhinos in the world, the Pobitora Wildlife sanctuary is a small heaven for the wildlife lovers, situated 30 km to the east of Guwahati. It is great place to go.

You can see most of what you are likely to see on the jeep tour inside the sanctuary from the public approach road but this should not stop you doing the jeep tour. Fantastic place for birds (November) together with rhinos and buffaloes.

This is a small rhino sanctuary in close proximity to Guwahati which prompted us to visit it. There is a typical government attitude to the whole place with people very laid back and unwilling to promote it; There was a drizzle at the time when...More

We decided to visit this wildlife park which hosts the single Rhino. People visit this place often. It is only 2 hrs of drive from Guwahati. Good for picnic or family outings.

Booked on the spot. Elephant safari is available only in the morning. You have to reach early if you want to take the ride. Jeep safari is better though in my opinion

Pobitora has more rhino density in terms of area. So rhino citing is more obvious. Kaziranga is huge and takes time. Both gives different experiences.
