About Manas National Park

Grasslands inside the national park are large and are dominated by Elephant Grasses and Swampy Marshlands. The population of Elephants is high in this park, and critically rare species such as the Pygmy Hog yet survive here, though rarely ever seen. A captive breeding center has been established at Manas National Park. Areas, where short grasses occur, are also good habitats for the once again Critically Endangered Hispid Hare and Bengal Florican.

The amazingly unique Golden Langur which only occurs in these forests is also found in a few areas where community development measures have resulted in local involvement in protecting the species. Bird-life in this region is a treat, interesting species await at every turn.

Safaris at Manas National Park

Jeep Safaris

Manas National Park conducts half day jeep safaris. A half day jeep safaris can be further categorized as a morning safari and an evening safari. The morning safaris start around 0600 hours depending on the sunrise time and lasts for about 4.5-5 hours. After the morning safari, the guest heads back to the lodge/resort. You can freshen up, eat a quick lunch, relax for a bit and later head back in to the jungle for your evening safari. The evening safari lasts for about 3 – 3.5 hours depending on the time of sunset. Post your evening safari, you head back to the lodge for dinner and take the rest of the evening at leisure.

Additionally, one can also explore nearby community forests on their full day excursions to spot some endangered wildlife such as the Golden Langur and the Bengal Florican.

Tiger Safari with Sanjay Gupta and Nature Safari India.
We just finished the first half of two tiger safari tours in India. The first was on the Banhavgar National Park. Our guide was Sanjay Gupta, who had 25 years of experience in the park and with the tigers. He was wonderful, sharing his experience and knowledge throughout our three full days together. He was definitely a highlight of our trip, as a great guide makes for a great experience, whether you see tigers or not! And we did see tigers...

I found them on the responsible tiger tourism association (TOFTigers) and I liked them from the very first contact. From the first email more than two years ago to the end of our trip in April 2022, the service was great, the selection of the itinerary, Parks, lodges and guides was perfect...
