Kaziranga National Park, India
Diphlu River Lodge opened in January 2008, providing top-class accommodations in Kaziranga National Park, a magnificent Indian wildlife enclave that is a World Heritage Site. The position of the lodge is second to none: only the boundary river separates its extensive grounds from the national park itself, and the jungle views are exceptional. The charming cottages are raised on stilts and made of bamboo and thatch, using local materials to blend in with the stunning natural surroundings. Each spacious cottage has en suite facilities and is well-appointed with air conditioning, a seating area, mini bar, safe, refrigerator and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Each has a balcony from which to savor the magical environs in the open air.
