The Ultimate Traveling Camp, Kishkinda Camp, Hampi

Step back in time with a stay at the new Kishkinda Camp in Hampi. Sumptuously furnished tents, four-poster beds, hand crafted décor and personalised butler service – this is mobile camping at its most luxurious.

Once the capital of the 14th century Vijayanagar Empire, Hampi boasts a remarkable collection of sacred ruins, royal palaces, watchtowers and temples that have since earned it a UNESCO World Heritage designation. From the intricate sculptures of the 8th century Virupaksha temple, the oldest shrine, to the impressive elephant stables and ruined market complexes, this is undoubtedly one of India’s finest archeological treasures.  

Set along the banks of the Tungabhadra River, Kishkinda is the ultimate base from which to immerse yourself in the wonders of this ancient citadel. You will find yourself within walking distance of all the main attractions, whilst resident naturalists can also take you birding on the river’s backwaters or to the nearby Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary. You can watch the sunset over the ruins, and at the end of the day retreat to the comforts of camp and the delicious, home grown Deccan dishes produced by the camp’s award-winning chefs.
