Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, Assam, India
Only 40km from northeast of Guwahati, this small wildlife sanctuary has a generous sprinkling of one-horned rhinoceros. Getting into the park involves a boat ride over the river boundary to the elephant-mounting station, from where you could embark on a one-hour trip atop an elephant, lumbering through boggy grasslands and stirring up petulant rhinos. The best way to get there is by taxi (return trip ₹1800).
