On all ABN small ships

Should you wish, there are ways to cultivate meaningful interactions and engage in a cultural exchange with the local communities we visit through our work at ABN Foundation.

Teach a class 

It can be as simple as taking up an English grammar chapter to read out to class, to a sing-along song, to informing them about your country, wildlife conservation and more.  


Teach a skill 

Perhaps you may like to teach painting with water colours, an easy way to make your favourite dessert, or teach them about different textiles and patterns around the world. 


Interact and read to the students 

This basic conversation interaction helps build the confidence of the young students, especially at schools where the students are struggling with spoken English language, a huge advantage in any employment sector.

At Diphlu River Lodge

Local weaving


Your design intervention is welcome at the weaving centre near Diphlu River Lodge, where the weavers can benefit from learning new colour combinations or developing their already keen design sense. 


Walk with Benu

You'll come to know Benu as the Diphlu River Lodge bartender, but he's more of a master of all trades! Benu – who is local to Kaziranga –has been with Diphlu River Lodge since its inception, and is eager to show guests his home, and meet his family and neighbours in his village located opposite our Lodge. Go on easy stroll through rubber plantations on a hillock, and past paddy fields till you reach Benu's home.


Get in touch and we'll help answer any questions you may have about your next holiday.
