Camping is often seen as the tomboy alternative to resort hopping or refined luxury hotel getaways. Seen to be the prerogative of the adventurous, it is usually the last option for a girls’ weekend away. What if we tell you that you can now have your cake and eat it too? You read that right, glamorous camping or glamping is not just for pioneering souls but also for those of us who enjoy the decadence of high thread-count sheets and sumptuous meals.
Why not make your next vacation with the girls a camping trip to some of our famed forests and reserves or gather the posse for a sojourn in the stark landscape of Rajasthan? Gather your besties, plan your vacation wardrobe for chic evenings under the stars and let the fun times roll - with some wine, of course!

The Ultimate Travel Company is touted as the first mobile luxury camp in India. With ultra-luxuriously appointed ‘tents’ with wooden floors, atmospheric lighting and all the comforts of a seven-star experience, spa treatment included, this is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. With past camps in Ladakh’s Nubra Valley, Nagaland, and the Dudhwa National Reserve, they cater to the discerning traveller interested in exceptional travel experiences across the length and breadth of our delightfully, diverse country.
Chhatra Sagar is our pick for the most unusual location, an utterly peaceful retreat midway between Jaipur and Udaipur, the camp sits on a dam! With views over a nature reserve and farmland stretching to the Aravalli Hills, this is a place of vast beauty that will ensure you and the girls share an unforgettable experience!

A classic oldie but goodie, The Oberoi Vanyavilas in Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan offers the chance to catch a glimpse of the Royal Bengal Tiger with a quintessentially Oberoi experience. Enjoy their bespoke spa treatments as a group or sip champagne with your friends, as you take in panoramic views of the forest from their watchtower.
Shergarh Tented Camp
Kanha National Park is also home to two luxury tented experiences, The Shergarh Tented Camp and Banjaar Tola Kanha Tented Camp, a Taj safari property. Enjoy the warmth of staying with friends or family at the Shergarh Camp, run by naturalist Jehan and his wife Katie. Laze languidly by the river flowing through the property or discuss the biodiversity of Kanha with other naturalists who flock here for its extraordinary location. Banjaar Tola’s charm lies in its location, right on the river bank of the Banjaar. Allow the serene atmosphere to wash away the grime of city life and rediscover the bonds of friendship in this picturesque location.
