Things to do
There is much to see within Diphlu River Lodge and close by. Do speak to the Lodge Manager on your interest in any of these activities and they will be able to arrange it for you.
Get hands-on with the only bathing beauties with one inch thick skin- the Indian elephant. Help wash down a domesticated elephant along with her handler in the refreshing waters of the Diphlu River.
Celebrate the simple joys of life with an exuberant dance performance followed by a bonfire and sumptuous barbecue dinner.
