  4. Meet the hotel manager at Kaziranga to discuss about the Jungle activity options that you can consider for the next day and plan and book them this evening itself. [you can consider an elephant safari, a jeep safari, a boat ride on the Brahmaputra or visit to tea estate.]

Highlight: Kaziranga National Park is a world renowned as the last sanctuary of the one-horned Indian Rhino. You can spend the day exploring all that Kaziranga has to offer. You can go for the early morning Elephant Safari which is a good way to get very close to the great Indian one-horned Rhino. You can spend the afternoon on the jeep safari. The jeep safari is where you are more likely to spot the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger. Assam is known for its tea, so do visit the Hathikula tea estate to see if any of the teas on sale there interest you. These are directly from the plantation and therefore much cheaper than the price at regular retail stores.
