Of the five (5) National Parks in Assam, the Dibru-Saikhowa National Park is one of the best bio diversity spots of India. Dibru-Saikhowa National Park is known for its population of  White winged wood duck in its natural habitat and also for its bright colored wild horses known as Feral Horses that are descendants of the domestic horses that strayed, escaped, or were deliberately released into the wild and remained to survive and reproduce there. Famous across the United States as ‘Mustangs’, Australia as ‘Brumby’, ‘Misaki’ in Japan these horses are a prized breed to watch out for at Dibru-Saikhowa. Best to be spotted during the monsoon season of Assam lasting from July through September, the Dibru Saikhowa National Park becomes a wild haven for all nature enthusiasts during that time. Generally across Assam, most of the other National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries close for public viewing during the monsoon season as these National Parks and Sanctuaries get flood. The Dibru Saikhowa National Park is the only National Park which remains open during the season offering its viewers an Exotic journey across the blooming orchid fields of the National Park. The tour is arranged on House Boats that take you on a journey of a lifetime spotting the varied Flora and Fauna of the Dibru Saikhowa National Park. Onboard kitchen facilities across these Houseboats ensure all your meal needs are taken care of. This experience on cruising across the waters of the Brahmaputra at the Dibru Saikhowa National Park is at par with the experience of cruising on houseboats on the back waters of Kerala.

It consists of semi wet evergreen forests, tropical moist deciduous forest, bamboo, cane brakes and grasslands and is just the place for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers with its breathtaking natural beauty and diverse flora and fauna. Although this National Park was primarily meant for the conservation of White winged wood duck in its natural habitat other endangered animals of this park are Hoolock gibbon, Capped langur, Slow loris, Water buffalo, Tiger, Elephant, Gangetic river dolphin, etc.
