Kaziranga National Park and Orang National Park Closed for Tourists Amid Weather Concerns

Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Assam, will be closed to tourists from May 31, 2024, as announced by the Divisional Forest Officer of the Assam Wildlife Division. This decision follows the earlier closures of Elephant and Jeep Safaris due to adverse weather and challenging road conditions. Despite an initial plan to halt Jeep Safaris on May 16, the DFO extended them until May 31, providing visitors additional time to experience the park.

Kaziranga, renowned for its significant population of Indian rhinoceroses, and Orang National Park, home to Royal Bengal Tigers and other species, are vital to Assam’s tourism. Orang National Park had already ceased safaris on May 15. These closures are necessary for safety and preservation, but they also highlight the parks’ natural beauty and ecological importance.
