Diphlu River Lodge

India

We spent three nights at this lovely lodge. It is comfortable, with all you need and has a homely feel to it which is helped by the friendly staff. Sitting in the bar that overlooks the Diphlu River to the park, a drink in hand, you feel close to the nature you’ve come to visit, despite the main road being at the other side of the lodge (it’s quiet at night). The food was good, though I sometimes wished they’d not taken as much of the spice and flavours out of the Indian dishes, presumably in a bid to tempt western palates. The naturalist guide we got was great and he ensured we saw all the key species while here – all except tigers, which we missed by 10 minutes on two days running! Sadly, the jeeps are not that comfortable, but there’s nothing the lodge can do about that as all lodges must hire them (with drivers) from the jeep association at the park.
