Been to Kaziranga recently. It was my first visit to the park and North East overall. It was indeed an amazing experience and was super cheap even we were just 2 of us.
Kaziranga roughly has four zones. Zones and Safari fees are as follows.
Central Zone - 1750/-
Western Zone - 1850/-
Eastern zone - 2250/-
Burapahad zone (buffer) - 2750/-
These rates were given by our guide. We had booked hotel near central zone gate. From this hotel western gate is around 10 kms and eastern zone gate is around 22 kms. This might be the reason of different rates per zone. Apart from this,
below are the extra costs you have to pay.
Road-tax - 300/-
entry fee - 100/- per head
camera fee - 100/- (Camera fee is for whole day. So if you pay it for morning safari then you dont have to pay for evening safari.)
We had booked pick up from Guwahati airport to kaziranga and drop back to airport. It costed us 7500/-.
We did 5 safaris. 2 in western, 2 in eastern and 1 in central. Tiger movement is mostly in western and in eastern zone.
Total cost of the safari was around 30k which is 15k per head for 2 people. If it would have been more people it would have been cheaper.
We also got a very good safari driver Tapan(+91 8876591044) who has all knowledge of the park. He also understand the requirements of wildlifers like us. Always came on time for safari and even refused to take tip we tried giving him.
I hope all this information would help people who want to plan trip on their own. Kaziranga is again awesome place and best time to go there is NOVEMBER to MARCH.
So do plan your trip there in next season!
