These accommodation options range from luxury tented hotels inspired by the travelling style of the Maharajas and their armies, to lodges built in the wilderness to best observe the local wildlife.
Whilst some of these lodges and camps are well known and celebrated, there are many others yet to be discovered by most travellers and which, we think, give a unique insight into local wildlife and the integrated farming traditions of rural India.
Whilst northern India and Rajasthan in particular can be punishingly hot during the day, the temperature plummets at night and there are few better experiences than sitting around the fire in the evening, as the desert sun sets before you retire to a well-appointed and luxurious tent.
The extra journey times taken to reach some of the more remote lodges in our portfolio is often more than offset by the added benefits of being there. This could be in terms of wildlife viewing, community integration or absolute tranquility. When you talk to our consultants they will devise a balanced itinerary to suit you with some of the best safari and adventure experiences on the planet.
