Beloved all over the world, Indian cuisine is renowned for its use of colourful, fragrant spices, its delicate layering of flavours and its balance between vegetarian and meat dishes. Using local family recipes passed down through the generations, our chefs also offer lighter variations of the classics and a range of international dishes, all of which can be tailored to suit individual tastes.
A lush oasis tended by dedicated gardeners, the camp’s organic kitchen garden provides fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs for the Dining Tent’s ever-changing menus. Chefs visit daily, to handpick what they need, and delight in touring the gardens with curious guests.
The lamp-lit ambience of the Dining Tent with its large communal table, multiple smaller settings and outdoor terrace harks back to the regal tent cities of Mughal emperors. The carefully curated menu offers international favourites as well as authentic Indian fare, including fragrant Rajasthani thalis. These round platters present a selection of various dishes from curries to dhal, accompanied by rice and homemade roti.
At the heart of the camp, the open-air fire pit is surrounded by comfortable seating with views of the surrounding forest. It is an ideal setting for informal meals or for basking in the serenity of the wilderness and the star-filled night sky. Nightly log fires make it a gathering point – a post-dinner outdoor salon where guests recount and reflect on the day’s explorations.
