Find your sanctuary at Diphu River Lodge, where the cottages perch above the river overlooking the park. Spend the remainder of the day easing into your surrounds. Recline on your private thatched balcony and listen to the orchestra of the jungle or venture high above the river to the machan (jungle platform) to catch your first magical rhino sighting.
