Transport inside the park :- inside the Kaziranga National Park, elephants and jeeps are the only mode of transport. Elephant safaris are quite popular and safe as well because, other sports hold the elephant in high esteem and do not dare to proceed much closer. However, on a jeep safari you can cover longer distance, but of course at the cost of the sounds of the jungle which are deafened by the sound of the jeep engine.
Walking on foot inside the park is strictly prohibited on grounds of safety.
