Discover the wild wonders of one of Asia's top large mammal habitats: Kaziranga National Park in the state of Assam in far-northeast India. Situated along the banks of the sacred Brahmaputra River, this vast swath of grassland, swamp and forest is often referred to as the “Ngorongoro of India” due to its incredible diversity and abundance of megafauna. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kaziranga provides refuge for 70% of the world's greater one-horned rhinoceroses, along with the densest Bengal tiger population on the planet. The reserve is also home to an impressive array of other wildlife, including Asian elephant, water buffalo, swamp deer, hog deer, hoolock gibbons, and more than a third of all bird species found on the Indian subcontinent. Expedition Leader Aditya Panda introduces us to one of the world’s richest ecosystems, the wild species that live there, and the conservation threats facing this natural treasure. Aditya reveals why Kaziranga is one of the world’s best safari destinations as he describes the efforts of Indian conservationists to conserve this special place.
