Kaziranga National Park

Kaziranga National Park is a 430 sq km area of protected land in Assam, spreading across the floodplains of the Brahmaputra River. Its forests, wetlands and grasslands host diverse flora and fauna, including tigers, elephants and the worldÂ’s largest population of Indian one-horned rhinoceroses.
The KNP recently became the first in India to equip the forest officials with satellite phones, which utilises signals from satellites instead of mobile towers for enabling communication. This provides connectivity to isolated and remote areas in the region. Satellite phones will ease forest personnelÂ’s responses to poachers and emergencies like flood.
