strong>Kaziranga National Park is located in the Golaghat and Nagaon districts of Assam, India. The sanctuary is the home of the world's Great One-horned rhinoceroses and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well. It also boasts the highest density of tigers among the protected areas in the world and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006. Though sightings of tigers are difficult because of the tall grasses that provide excellent camouflage, their presence can be felt everywhere by way of pug marks, kills, and territorial markings. The Park is home to large breeding populations of Asiatic Elephants, wild water buffalo, swamp deer, and an important bird area. It is also home to a variety of migratory birds, water birds, predators, scavengers, and game birds.
As well to the Indian Rhino, the Park contains about 35 major mammals, including Wild Elephant, Tiger, a small population of Hoolock Gibbon, Capped Langur, hog badger, otter, leopard, wild boar, sambar, swamp deer, hog deer, muntjac, water buffalo and gaur.
The avifauna of the Kaziranga National Park comprises over 400 species.
