Thanks to below average monsoons in the North East, Kaziranga National Park has opened for tourist three weeks ahead of schedule. Instead of initially planned date of November 1st, the park has been made accessible from 10th October.
Currently, only jeep safaris in select areas will be open for tourists, since the roads in many sections are yet to be rebuilt after monsoons. Elephant safaris are yet to begin, since the tracks used for safari are still not repaired.
In another related news, Kaziranga is suffering from poaching incidences in recent past. A tiger and a rhino were found dead in the park last week. Authorities foiled another attempt at poaching and poachers were forced to retract after 30 minutes of shootout.
