an important part of Indian culture
The Diphlu River Lodge has plenty to offer beyond wildlife viewing, with itineraries which can be customized to suit individual needs and interests.
Get onboard and sail on the Mighty Brahmaputra to experience the unparalleled scenic beauty and the many avian species that thrive along its course. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the beach or be partaking in a game of Frisbee or beach cricket.
Apart from the daily Jungle Activities, an added attraction at Diphlu River Lodge is the possible encounters with the endangered but playful Gangetic Dolphins on our Dolphin Boat Safari.
Celebrate the simple joys of life with an exuberant dance performance followed by a bonfire and sumptuous barbecue dinner.
