Gorgeous soft cotton curtains divide the beautiful space into sleeping/bathing/lounging zones. And the hot tip is that tent number one is the most private as it’s set the furthest away from the main camp! Fall asleep in your king bed, listening to the calls of the wildlife.

The Dining Tent cooks traditional Rajasthani cuisine, inspired by the royal kitchens of the Mughal emperors, with most meals created using vegetables and herbs grown in the camp's own organic garden. Lit by flickering candles at night, the Dining Tent has one large communal table and several smaller settings, but dinner is just as often served outside beside the roaring fire.

The pool is a sight to be seen, a sparkling oasis in the middle of the wilderness, a place for relaxation and rejuvenation or just an afternoon spent on a sun lounger. And once you are feeling refreshed pop over to the Lounge Tent where there is a wide selection of novels, magazines, games, and music or the Spa Tent, where Massages and treatments are available.

The fireplace is the camp's focal point, a large open plan and equally stunning space which is surrounded by cushioned banquettes for a relaxing evening taking in the stars, with a cocktail of course… afternoon G&Ts and post-dinner whiskies are poured in the Dining Tent and served around the fireplace each night.
