Detail Itinerary

DAY 1 (FRIDAY):

Kaziranga National Park / Sail

We rise very early today and after a warm cup of tea and some snacks, drive out towards the Kaziranga National Park .  The most prized inhabitant of Kaziranga is the Greater One-Horned Indian Rhinoceros, but the Park is home to as many as 180 different mammals including wild elephants, tiger, deer, Asiatic wild buffalo and a rich variety of birds.

We reach the Kohora Mihimukh range of the National Park and are ready to start our morning adventure; once-in-a-lifetime elephant-backed safari where we search for the elusive rhinoceros, tigers, swamp deer and hog deer and more and a large number of very interesting birds.  The park never ceases to surprise us.

After breakfast at a resort in Kaziranga, we drive on to Bagori, the Western Range of Kaziranga and get into the open jeeps for some more wild life adventure and an extensive coverage of this magnificent park.

We return to MV Mahabaahu for a leisurely lunch and a relaxed afternoon.

After the leisurely pace of the day and having recovered the lost sleep, we once again get together for A talk on ‘Kamakhya and the Occult and Peacock Island’ and then proceed for the traditional Assamese theme dinner.

A Village Visit / Full Day Sail / Peacock Island

We catch up on Yoga on an island or on the deck for an hour and move on to breakfast, while MV Mahabaahu lifts anchor and heads on towards an island that is occupied predominantly by a Bangla speaking Muslim community who are involved in extensive farming.

After a visit to this village we return to the ship for lunch and sail towards the Peacock Island that is home to some Golden Langurs.

After the Peacock island visit, we sail towards Pandu Port and anchor at a jetty.  We get ready for the Farewell Dinner ‘Alvida Bhoj’ and enjoy a relaxed evening.
