Kaziranga National Park is located in Assam, India.  A World Heritage Site, Kaziranga boasts the highest density of tigers among protected areas in the world and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006.  The park is home to large breeding populations of elephants, wild water buffalo, and swamp deer.  It is also host to 2/3 of the world’s Great One-horned Rhinoceroses.  In this video by Gabe Deloach, a group of people simply trying to get from point A to point B were almost stopped from arriving at point B, in actuality coming extremely close to death.  For some reason, a rhinoceros was spooked by them and their elephant and it charged.  Craziness.
