Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is a wildlife reserve in the Morigaon district of the state of Assam in India. It is located about 30 km east of Guwahati.The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is at a distance of about 48 kilometers by road from Guwahati which is a 1-hour drive via a road that passes by the River Brahmaputra and a small portion of the village of Mayong. The sanctuary covers an area of about 38.8 square kilometers and has a great population of the Great Indian one-horned rhinoceros.

It is located about 50 kilometers away from Guwahati and from Guwahati; it takes approximately one and a half hour to reach the Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary. Do not forget to explore the sanctuary through a wildlife safari where you will get the opportunity to sight many one horned Rhinos for which the sanctuary is famous, some Wild Pigs, varieties of birds, several orchids and wild buffaloes. A jeep safari ride always seems to be the best option for people who wish to spend the whole day amid nature and around the city of Guwahati.

Do embark upon the exhilarating safari ride in the Pobitra Wild Life Sanctuary and witness the unique variety of flora and fauna of the region.You will get chances to witness and discover different and endangered animals like the one-horned rhino and many other species of migratory birds as well.Continue your trekking and marvel at the sights of some other animals like feral semi-wild buffalo, wild boar and jackal. You can enjoy an appetizing lunch at some local restaurant to get away with the tiredness of the trip.

You can also pay your respects at the Iskcon Temple which is located on a hill top and near to the Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary. The temple actuallyt lets you view the entire city of Guwahati at one single glance. Relax in the peaceful and calm environments on this hill top in the middle of the bustling and fast expanding city.

A thing which you should not at all miss when you are in Guwahati is spotting the one horned rhinoceros as this sanctuary is most famously known for its one-horned rhinos. Get up early in the morning to grab the chance to witness all the exotic species from as much close as it is possible for you to on an elephant ride. The elephant ride is actually quite better than the much talked about gypsy ride. The elephant ride is very safe to travel with kids and they can be made to sit easily on the elephant along with the rest of the people.

The exclusivity of the Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is that you can find the maximum number of Rhinos that is more than 100 rhinoceroses in an area of 100 square kilometers. So, you will most definitely spot a Rhino here in the sanctuary. Apart from the one horned Rhino, you will also get to explore some unique migratory birds that flock here in the Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary during the months of winter.

The sanctuary is well connected via a state highway from Guwahati. Between the months of November and April, there will be regular elephant safari and Jeep safaris available for going inside the forest.
