Apart from the Rhino fight and Elephant threat, Kaziranga was also about laaauuu!
We were lucky to witness this Great Hornbill couple romancing each other.
Tis said that the best way to a females heart is through food, which the male hornbill was knowledgeable of. He put all his effort, hopping from branch to branch, to get only the best fruit for his lady love. And fed her too - beak to beak ❤😍😘
Need contacts / reference for Manas plz.
This Ellie could have gotten us into some serious trouble!
As we were wandering around the lakes and out he popped from the grasses. We were immediately conscious that his parents would be right around the corner. And lo and behold, his dad was to our right and mom on our left, both not too pleased with us. While we were quick thinking whether to drive straight through or back up, this little one took the decision out of our hands as he walked head on to our gypsy. We immediately went into reverse and what a sighting it was. His mom and another younger sibling walked out of the grasses, into the middle of the road and started spraying mud on themselves 😊😄
Kaziranga is one of the most majestic parks I have visited - a must visit for any and all wildlife lover - photographer or not.
We witnessed the romance of great hornbills - tiny fruit, big beaks and the love with which it was fed to a partner, the huge elephants, rhinos and buffaloes - on the road, in the water, taking mudbaths or in a standoff with each other. We even saw a dozen otters gorging on a fish they had collectively caught. There was delight in everything. And constant chirping of a multitude of birds.
The trip ended with witnessing a fight of the mighty rhinos - they fight like gentlemen wrestlers - a dirty fight with a lot of rolling in the mud 😊
The park is super cheap, the people simple and amazing and the environment so beautiful. GO VISIT KAZI!

Try to do four safaris in three zones - one each in Bagori and Kohara and 2 in Agaratoli - in search of rhino and tiger.
