Primate lovers will love to be a part of this tour, so get ready to rock and roll with the gibbons of Hollongapar. Hollongapar Gibbon Sanctuary is a pristine and isolated protected area of evergreen forests located in Assam. The sanctuary was constituted under the civil district of Jorhat and named "Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary" after the only apes found in India; the Western Hoolock Gibbon. It is so called because of its distinction for containing the densest gibbon population in Assam. Noteworthy to mention that it has northeast India's only nocturnal primate - The Bengal Slow Loris. So get ready to experience something span-new, spend time with the gibbons, the closest relatives of human beings to know them closely.

Kaziranga Tiger Reserve is situated on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra River. Kaziranga with its swamps and tall thickets of elephant grass makes the place an ideal habitat for the Indian one-horned Rhinoceros. The vast expanse makes Kaziranga very accessible and wildlife viewing interesting and pleasurable. Kaziranga, being easily accessible, gives one a chance to see animals in the wild at close quarters, thus making a trip to this National Park a very rewarding experience. The Park lies in the flood plains of the Brahmaputra River and thus the land is very fertile here. Kaziranga experiences heavy rainfall during the monsoon season which often flood the park. Kaziranga mainly comprises of tall thickets of elephant grasses, short grasses, open jungle, rivers and swamps.

Kaziranga National Park is one of the most picturesque wildlife parks in India. Apart from being home to the one-horned rhino, it is also the natural habitat of Asiatic wild buffaloes, elephants, swamp deer, hog deer, leopards, Bengal tigers, capped langur and many more species. Kaziranga is also a birder's paradise and one can find a great variety of avifauna here. The numerous water bodies of Kaziranga hosts thousands of migratory birds who visit the park every season.

Nameri Tiger Reserve is situated in the foothills of eastern Himalayas, in the Sonitpur district of Assam, about 9 K.M. from Chariduar, the nearest village. As evident from the name itself, the place is a home to tigers, apart from tigers it provides shelter to other animals like leopards, leopard cat, Himalayan Black Bear, Capped Langur and last but not the least Elephants. With over 300 species of birds (both resident and migratory), Nameri Tiger Reserve is a birder's heaven. Bird wathcing and bird photography is a sheer delight here; some of the highlight bird species from Nameri are White-winged Wood-Duck, Great Hornbill, Wreathed Hornbill, Ibisbill etc.
