After being shut for almost 7 months, Assam's iconic Kaziranga National Park has reopened for tourists with all COVID-19 safety norms in place. The closure because of the coronavirus lockdown and then the monsoon has been the longest in its 112-year history. For now, only jeep safaris are allowed. The elephant safaris and other activities will start from November 1. Home to the rare one-horned rhinoceroses and tigers, besides other wild life, the Kaziranga Park was formally opened by Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal. According to the park authorities, wearing masks, using hand sanitisers and maintaining social distance will be a must for all visitors. All tourists and guides would be subjected to thermal scanning, and health checks.
