Spanning across an area of 429 sq. km, Kaziranga is a biological hotspot occupying the Golaghat and Nagaon districts in the heart of Assam. This protected area was discovered in 1904 by the wife of Lord Curzon, who then developed it into a Reserve Forest within the next four years. In 1916, the site was converted into Kaziranga Game Sanctuary, and in 1950, it was christened as Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary. Owing to its natural environment, the state government designated it as a national park in 1974. Subsequently, UNESCO declared Kaziranga as a World Heritage Site for wildlife in 1985. Moreover, in 2006, it was designated as a Tiger Reserve as it is inhabited by the highest number of tigers in terms of density, in a protected area worldwide.
Kaziranga is famed to host the largest population of the endangered one-horned rhinoceroses worldwide. For protection of more than 491 avifaunal species, Birdlife International has designated Kaziranga as an Important Bird Area. It is also home to diverse species of mammals, including elephants.
