jaldapara Car Safari and Elephant Ride Booking

The history of Jaldapara National Park dates back to the early 1800s when it was known as Totapara, inhabited by the Mech and Toto tribes. Originally established as a game reserve in the 19th century to protect Bengal tigers, it was later declared a sanctuary in 1941. Finally, in 2014, it was upgraded to a national park. The park’s primary purpose was to safeguard the dwindling population of one-horned rhinoceros from hunting, poaching, and habitat loss. Despite administrative changes over the years, the conservation efforts have remained steadfast, ensuring the preservation of its rich biodiversity.
