After three lovely days, it was time to move on. Oona and her family set us up with Bus tickets, making sure we will not run in to one more Indian adventure. We sat in a comfy bus and head out to Kaziranga Nationalpark. endless tea estates passing by. A lovely lodge waiting for us.
Other than said in most guides, there actually are some lovely sites for food and accommodation outside the state-run tourist complex. Do not go in to the main village, stroll down the road eastward bound and after a short 2-5 min walk you’ll see some recently established places, like this lovely Assamese restaurant we found there.
When you go in ot the park, be prepared for camera fees and all other fees you can possibly imagine (“Film Camera 16mm Fee”). but: Make sure you do invest in a guide. Our guide made our trip in to Kaziranga Natinal-Park worthwhile. All but elephants and one-horned Rhino would have passed us unseen, if not for her. She not only had binoculars (yep…we are not the best safari people and had not thought about it…), she made us see… and: she boosted our knowledge about flora and fauna in the most lovely and non-intrusive way, but still a lot…
To book a guide in Kaziranga National Park, simply tell the car-rental people, where the guides wait stand by. To arrange in advance with our lovely guide – simply get in touch with her:
