India’s forests, wetlands, deserts, mountains, rivers and rainforests host a diversity of bird and wildlife that is one of the richest in the world. We give you practical tips and suggestions about where to sight…

Asiatic Lion: The only place in the world where you are likely to spot the wild, uncaged, endangered Asiatic lion, is ironically, at the former hunting ground for the king of the jungle – the Gir National Park in Gujarat, which has a population of about 400 Asiatic lions. Since, as a rule, lions are known not to attack once they have had a good meal, if you are lucky, you might chance upon a pride of lions in post-prandial hushful response.

Bengal-Tiger-4Bengal Tiger: The ultimate lone ranger, the Bengal Tiger survives by itself, often hunts in the dead of the night, is mighty sneaky and pretty spry and the sound of its roar can be heard three kilometres away. Though critically endangered, you are most likely to spot the Bengal Tiger at national parks like Bandhavgarh, Corbett, Kanha and also at the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve.




leopardLeopard: The leopard is superjock – an excellent swimmer, a superb climber and armed with plenty of stealth, muscles and power, it makes for a formidable predator in the wild. The best places to spot the leopard are the Nagarhole National Park in Karnataka and the tiny hamlet of Bera in Rajasthan. You can also try your luck at the Bandipur National Park in Karnataka or at Rajaji National Park in Uttarakhand.




desert foxDesert Fox: The best place to spot the desert fox, also known as the white-footed fox, is in the massive parchedness of the Thar Desert in Rajasthan or in the salt marshes of the Wild Ass Sanctuary in the Little Ran of Kutch in Gujarat. While in the sanctuary, you might as well appreciate the Indian Wild Ass, that exists only here and in the high plateus of Tibet.




hyenaHyena: May be it’s the singular sound they make or maybe it’s the fact they are scavengers, but hyenas have, for centuries now, endured general contempt and obloquy. They don’t quite deserve it though, for they are usually smart, surprisingly monogamous and generally step out of their dens only when it’s dark. Head to the Blackbuck National Park in Velavadar, Gujarat for a sure-shot sighting.







indian_wolf_jpg_69460Indian wolf: The wild dog-like Indian wolf can look misleadingly demesticable. But know that even though it is smallest of the wolf subspecies, the Indian wolf is ferocious and known to prey on human when natural prey is not available. They usually move in packs of six or eight and hunt by ambush. To check them out, head to the Blackbuck National Park in Velavadar, Gujarat or to the Great Indian Bustard Sanctuary in Nannaj, Maharasthra.




golden langurGolden Langur: There are only two places in the world where you can see the lush beauty of golden langur: India and Bhutan. An herbivore, the golden langur lives on fruits, nuts, seeds and leaves. Today, the golden langur is endangered and very few individuals survive in the wild. Head to Manas National Park in Assam and try to look upward on high trees to see if you can catch a glimpse of this gorgeous primate.





ridlet turtleOlive Ridley Sea Turtles: These turtles make their way to the sea after hatching at the Rushikulua, Devi and Gahirmatha in Odisha from the largest breeding ground for these turtles in India. The synchronised nesting (anywhere between 100000-500000 annually) and march of these turtles towards the seas makes for a spectacular site that is not one to be missed.


Kaziranga National Park, the World Heritage Site, India

“You sway to the left and then to the right, as the Elephant you are on trudges through the tall grass (Elephant Grass or Pennisetum Purpureum)which you can actually touch from your perch. The mahout guides the big beast through trails and thickets and orders it to stop. Stop it does – right in front of the famed INDIAN ONE HORNED RHINOCEROS with her calf ! The Rhino snorts, looks at you and decides to disappear into the thicket with its young-ling in tow.

Welcome to the Kaziranga National Park, the World Heritage Site. Its 430 sq. kms. of swamps and grasslands with tall thickets of savannah elephant grass and patches of evergreen forest support the largest number of Rhinos on the subcontinent and gives you one of the highest wildlife viewing probabilities of any wildlife park from the back of an elephant or from a four wheel drive vehicle.
BUT KAZIRANGA IS NOT ALL ABOUT RHINOS. Apart from 60% of the worlds INDIAN ONE HORNED RHINOCEROS, the Park sustains half the worlds population of genetically pure Wild Water Buffaloes, over 1000 Wild Elephants and perhaps the densest population of ROYAL BENGAL TIGERS, anywhere.
Kaziranga is also home to some 500 species of birds. It is Raptor Country, a BIRD WATCHER’S PARADISE.. The Crested Serpent Eagle, Palla’s Fishing Eagle and the Greyheaded Fishing Eagle circle the skies and the Swamp Partridge, the Barheaded Goose, the Whistling Teal and Bengal Forrican, Storks, Herons and even Pelicans play in the water.
The easy accessibility to wildlife is the secret of Kaziranga’s popularity and is almost midway between the two major cities, Guwahati and Dibrugarh amidst the undulating landscapes of world’s oldest tea gardens outside China.
