India - Rhinos of Assam

This is a real adventure that takes you to Assam and the Manas, Kaziranga National Parks and Pobitora Reserve. You will be on safari in India, looking for the endangered one horned rhinos. You will hopefully see plenty of other wildlife as well including Asian elephants, bears, deer, tigers and leopards which are all thriving in the national parks.

The wildlife of Kaziranga recently appeared on the Jungle episode of the stunning BBC wildlife programme Planet Earth II. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Kaziranga in 2016 as well. Come and find out why it is proving to be such a fabulous place for seeing rare species.

The national parks in Assam all do invaluable work protecting rare and endangered species and their habitats. This includes the rare one horned rhino, Asian elephants, Bengal tigers, leopards, black bear and many other species of deer, birds and smaller mammals.
