Kaziranga National Park (Assam, India) is among the largest expanses of protected land in the sub-Himalayan belt and one of eastern India’s most famous national parks. The Park boasts a stunning diversity of wildlife — Asian elephants, one-horned Indian rhinoceros, water buffalo, many species of deer, wild boar, monkeys, and hundreds of bird species. In this photographic essay, we briefly describe and illustrate the wildlife associated with selected typical landscapes and vegetation types, as seen on a visit to Kaziranga in winter 2023.
