Opening its doors in 2019, the newest addition to the Ultimate Travelling Camp collection is the beautiful and luxurious Kishkinda Camp, in Hampi.
The camp is made up of just ten luxury tented suites, including one presidential tent. Designed in a colonial safari style, the peaked roofs of the tents give way to luxurious rooms with four poster beds, leather trunks and comfortable seating areas. Inside the décor is neutral, elegant and cosy, while the private deck of each tent is lit with hanging oil lamps to create a lovely spot to watch the sunset or the stars from.
Meals are served in the central area and are expertly prepared from home grown herbs and vegetables by the resident chefs. Expect fresh and flavourful local dishes, with creative international twists.
With the UNESCO World Heritage ruins of Hampi on your doorstep, there is much to keep you busy during a stay at Kishkinda Camp. Alongside the guides from camp, explore the huge array of temple ruins, whose crumbling stone walls contrast with the lush green landscapes and huge rocky boulders surrounding the area. You will also want to let the guides take you off the beaten track to explore the district of Sandur, where you'll meet the nomadic Banjaras people, to the Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary, where you'll meet these unusual creatures, to the Badami Caves temple complex, and to watch the sunset over the Tungabhadra River.
All of the guided excursions offered in and around Hampi are complimentary with your stay.
