Welcome

The exotic tradition of tents has touched the spirit and soul of many different cultures, capturing the imagination of nomads and free spirits throughout the world. North American Indians, Bedouins, Romans, Ottomans, Arabs, Tibetans, Mongols, Mughals and Maharajas have all favoured the romance of life under canvas.

In India, these tents offered the ultimate in luxurious hospitality, often serving as royal structures for the Maharajas and their courts, and were used to entertain for a variety of occasions. For centuries they have been host to royal weddings, religious ceremonies, polo events, hunting parties on safari and desert encampments.

Today, tents are still used at palaces, private properties, gardens and resorts, and there are still Safari and Tented Camps in India at which travellers are welcomed.

Our tents are derived from the rich and diverse history of the Mughal dynasty, rulers of India for many hundreds of years. As such, they have a character and ambience that is unmatched by modern tents.

Our up-to-date range offers something to suit every occasion and we are of course happy to furnish the tents in the style of your choice, be it contemporary, traditional or maybe something in between.

We would be delighted to work closely with you to personalise every detail of your tent. With just a little creativity and imagination, you will be amazed at what we can achieve.
