It's very proximate from guwahati city and believe me in 35-40 kms I never expected to to see one horn rhinos like buffalos roaming around without even getting into the reserve forest. More than this the way to Pobitora is so scenic it's worth going for a long drive during early evening. There are resorts available for lodging and fooding.... More

Good small park to make an elephant trip. It is close to Guwahati and there a few possibilities to stay in a room in the village at the gate of the park. The trip is through the forest and grassland. it is easy to meet the rhino's. Very nice and easy.

The elephant safari is 600 per person which is very reasonable. We got very close to the rhinos. The Google maps takes you exactly at the zizina resort. we were told that... More

Although Kaziranga is famous for one horned rhinoceros, but Pobitora has the highest density of Rhino. You can see rhino almost anywhere during a jeep safari. There are also many migratory birds during spring season. It's only a 2 hours drive from Guwahati, so we have frequent visits to this place. Some well maintained resorts are also here. Overall a...
