This place has 2 rhinos per kilometer as per data. Rhinos can be seen easily as the grass is dry and short. Unlike Kaziranga this can be done as a day trip, and at 1400 Ts it is easier on the pocket as well. For Kaziranga u must stay overnite and also spend on taxi services. The reason this place... More

This place is great for rhino spotting. It may not have the size or jungle of Manas and Kaziranga but it certainly has the rhinos. This is the second time I've visited and each elephant ride has produced amazing photos of the horny beasts. There's also a lovely picnic spot next to the river. Would definitely go again.

Hardly a 40 min drive from the city.. this park gives you the closest look at the one horned rhino. Beautiful jungle with an excellent sunrise.

I had a ride on an elephant and could see many rhinos, buffaloes and wild boars. It depends on a traffic, but it took about 1.5hours from Guwahati and it's much closer than Kaziranga. I think this place is more than good enough to see rhinos. The visit takes 1hour.

We finished our river cruise and were heading to Kaziranga. On the way we stopped at Pobitora. Its a little gem. It was not crowded and our group was 5 elephants. The guides made sure we stopped regularly and were able to take wonderful photos. You will see many one horned rhinos very close up. They graze in fields with... More
