One of the greatest highlights on the MV Mahabaahu cruising journey is witnessing the big six in all their glory! There’s a reason the Kaziranga National Park is known as the Serengeti of India.
So, who are the Big 6?
The national park is home to the greatest population of over:
2,400 Single Horned Rhinos,
3,100 Wild Buffaloes,
1,100 Asiatic Elephants,
115 Royal Bengal Tigers,
Spotted Leopards and
And there’s more…
With 478 species of birds including the Great Hornbill, Pied Hornbill, Greater Adjutant Stork, Lesser Adjutant Stork, Black Necked Storks, Open Billed Storks, Woolly Necked Storks, Palasus Fishing Eagles, Grey Headed Fishing Eagles, Serpent Eagles, Vultures, Raptors, Kites and many different kinds of ducks, this park is home to many big birds.
Added to all this are the Hillock Gibbons- the only ape of India, Monkeys, Beavers, Squirrels, Monitor and Water Monitor Lizards, Snakes including the King Cobras (hibernating in winters therefore, rarely seen) and Fresh Water Dolphins.
The rolling, lush green elephant grass against the backdrop of the mighty river under the shadows of the towering Himalayan peaks, makes this one of the most beautiful jungles of the world.
Voyaging on-board the M.V. Mahabaahu is equally exciting for luxury, adventure and wildlife enthusiasts alike.
Get ready to spot rare and exotic species from, both, on and off the ship. Some of our guests have been lucky enough to see tigers from the ship itself!
