Diphlu River Lodge Experience
Luxury Jungle Lodge
Kaziranga is one of the best parks in India at about 200 kms from Guwahati (Assam). Diphlu river lodge provides a very high quality luxury jungle lodge experience as well as that looks to give guests a comprehensive Wildlife experience.
All cottages sleep 2 and have been beautifully designed to make full use of local materials and artefacts and blend in with the natural surroundings. All are furnished with charming interiors. Each has a seating area with cane furniture, a writing desk, mini-bar, safe, small fridge and tea & coffee machine as well as top-quality beds and mattresses. The very spacious separate cottages have a wide folding glass door opening onto a thatched verandah with cane day bed and inviting chairs, and overlook the Diphlu River and National Park, while at the rear a deck with sun loungers looks across farmland. The semi-detached cottages all have equally attractive large balconies from which to savour the magical surroundings in the open air.
High above the river is the Machan. (means "jungle platform") This has air-conditioned sitting and dining areas opening onto a large verandah with high thatch ceiling and bamboo floor. This is a popular area for guests to socialize and dine together.
Further along the river bank a jetty will enable our guests to embark on river trips in dugout canoes, from which they can look out for otters and for buffalo, deer or rhino grazing on the far bank. This River Bank area is also perfect for the barbecues and camp fires we arrange - or as just another idyllic spot for a sundowner while watching the sunset across the river.
The grounds of the lodge have been carefully planned to preserve the natural environment. Steps lead down to railed bamboo walkways over the paddy field and other crops, linking the cottages and Machan without disturbing the agriculture. The eco-friendly operation of the resort includes re-cycling grey water for irrigation.
Diphlu river lodge is recommended for a world traveler looking for comforts and finesse of a luxury jungle lodge run on eco-friendly and responsible lines.
