An excerpt from 'In the lap of nature: India's most stunning luxury wildlife resorts' by Lifestyle Asia:
Completing 10 years this year, Diphlu River Lodge speaks effortless luxury. Inspired by the architecture of Mishing tribal homes, its 12 cottages sit snugly at the fringe of Kaziranga National Park, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other than the covered dining space, Machan, they have three open dining spaces: the Tea Deck, Hilltop, and River Bank for you to be at leisure in nature’s lap. Hop aboard the jeep safari to Kaziranga — they run one every morning and afternoon — to witness the world’s largest population of one-horned rhinoceros and the highest density of the Royal Bengal Tiger. The thriving deciduous and semi-evergreen forests also house the Ganges dolphin, barking deer, king cobra, and many more along with over 400 species of birds. When not exploring wildlife, get acquainted with the local culture via native performances at the hilltop.
