Our short extension to Assam is a birding and wildlife tour that showcases Kaziranga National Park, arguably India’s most famous reserve, and Nameri National Park, one of the last areas where the highly endangered White-winged Duck can be observed. The vast swathe of swamps, grasslands and forests in Kaziranga support masses of large mammals, unrivaled anywhere else in Eurasia. The prehistoric Indian Rhinoceros is abundant and large numbers of wild Asian Buffalo, Asian Elephant and numerous deer including the rare Barasingha (Swamp Deer) can be seen. Predators include Tiger, Leopard and Dhole. The birding is equally superb and targets will include the endangered Greater Adjutant, White-winged Duck, Swamp Francolin and a variety of other exciting Asian specialties.
