No one is allowed to kill the animal but despite the efforts of the Indian Government, some 40 rhinoceros are killed by poachers every year. Their horns are in great demand in Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan for their presumed medicinal value. Wildlife which can be

Safari in the Kaziranga National Park
In Kaziranga, visitors can see wildlife riding on an elephant – that is the most suitable transport for viewing the rhinos, safe and secure. A mahout guides you comfortably through the fields to the heart of the sanctuary where soon a rumbling noise warns you that you are in the vicinity of the great rhino. The mahout knows where to stop and how to handle the situation in the face of an angry rhino.

Best time to Visit the Kaziranga National Park
The Park can be visited by jeep, car or on the back of the elephant. The best season to visit the park is from November to March. The park is closed from mid of April to mid of October.
