Authorities of Orang National Park &Tiger Reserve and Kaziranga National Park &Tiger Reserve announce the temporary closure of tourist activities, stressing the importance of visitor safety and environmental conservation.

As the annual cycle of conservation approaches, authorities overseeing the Kaziranga National Park and Orang National Park & Tiger Reserve in Assam have announced the closure dates of tourist activities for the 2024 -25 season until further notice. Both sanctuaries, renowned for their rich biodiversity and iconic wildlife, are set to temporarily suspend jeep safari and elephant safari for visitors, ensuring the safety of the visitors and making room for an undisturbed breeding season for the indigenous fauna.

Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, will cease elephant safari starting May 1, followed by the suspension of jeep safari from May 16, marking the onset of the monsoon season. Home to the world's largest population of Indian one-horned rhinoceroses, as well as significant populations of tigers, elephants, and water buffalo, Kaziranga plays a pivotal role in the conservation of endangered species.

Simultaneously, Orang National Park & Tiger Reserve, known for its dense forests and diverse habitats, will halt both jeep safari and elephant safari starting May 15, 2024. Nestled on the northern banks of the Brahmaputra River, Orang provides a critical refuge for the Royal Bengal Tiger, along with a myriad of other species including the Great Indian One-Horned Rhinoceros and the Asian elephant.

The decision to halt tourist activities in these protected areas is a recurring pattern in Assam. The tourist season for all national parks and wildlife sanctuaries typically commences in October and concludes in mid-May of the subsequent year. While the closure may disappoint wildlife enthusiasts and tourists, it underscores the commitment of authorities towards wildlife conservation and habitat preservation.
