KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK: A TRUE FOREST EXPERIENCE
You see a few one-horned Rhino grazing behind the elephant-grass meadows. On one side there is a herd of Asiatic buffaloes with their newly born calves.The place is quiet and still, precisely like the view in the picture below.Except, the low humming of the birds and the occasional squeaks of the squirrels, that’s hiding in the bushes. You are curiously looking out for a sloth bear or a civet cat. A royal sambar has fixed its gaze on you from a distance.
All of a sudden you are shaken by the loud trumpets of an elephant, not too far from you. And looking around you see a group of people seated in a teak wood chair on the back of a gigantic elephant that is peacefully carrying them for a tour around the forest. The above description is not an excerpt from a novel, nor is it a fairytale. Such a place indeed exists.
