This year in late February, I visited Manas and Kaziranga National Park of Assam – both of these places were in my wishlist since a long time. The first day of the trip was at Manas. One full-day safari in this forest gave us some really good sightings of Asiatic Elephants, Wild Water Buffaloes, Barking deer, Crab-eating Mongoose, One-horned Rhino, Capped Langur, Malayan Giant Squirrel, Himalayan Two-Striped Squirrel and many birds including the critically endangered Bengal Florican.
The next 3 days were spent at Kaziranga National Park – The land of the big fives! We got some spectacular sightings along with amazing photography opportunities of four of the “Big Fives” – Asiatic Elephant, One-Horned Rhino, Wild Water Buffalo and Eastern Swamp Deer. Birding and other animal sightings were also great!
We at Way2Wild will be launching photography tours to a couple of new destinations this year, and Kaziranga and Manas are going to be two of them. Do join us if you wish to explore these two very unique and enchanting forests of North-East India. We’ll be announcing the tour dates soon, so stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for the updates.
Here are a few images that I made during this trip. Hope you all will like them, cheers!
