Comfort of a semi-luxury train and thrill of safaris into the wilderness of Assam will be up for grabs for tourists from next February as the Assam Safari Express would starts its two trips, back to back, for the first time in the State.

A dream project for development of Assam tourism, the initiative of the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) and Assam Tourism Development Corporation along with the Railways is getting its final shape in terms of cost-component and marketing, to make the ‘land and railway’ package more appealing and cost effective for the tourists.

The package will offer three types of exotic safaris in Assam, including elephant safari and jeep safari in Kaziranga National Park and boat safari in Dibru-Saikhowa National Park. The itinerary has already been finalised by both the organisations, which includes a six-night package covering places like Guwahati, Kaziranga, Sivasagar, Tinsukia and Dibru-Saikhowa.
