Plan a Safe & Off-Beat Travel Across Karnataka In India's First Luxury Camper Vans

Karnataka, are you ready to conquer your travel plans and weekend getaways already? Well with Campervan Camps and Holidays, a Bengaluru based start-up backed by the esteemed Indian cricket coach Anil Kumble, you can now travel across the state in India's first motorhomes that will allow you to take a camping expedition without having to worry about your accommodations and commute in the times of Covid-19 and ahead.  

Camping with a Caravan amidst untamed landscapes


Cut short those travel woes by heading to natural surroundings. The best way to avoid much human interaction is to get away to a camp-site and chill. Want to revel in the beauty of Coorg or the cave-sites of Chikmagalur? This is the ultimate opportunity- rent a caravan and take to those scenic valleys. And guess what? This is exactly what Campervan Camps advocate. 

Tiger Ramesh, the founder of the start-up said- “Since lodges cannot be built in and around protected areas now, the best way to travel without impacting nature is a caravan,” he further added that the start-up is partnering with campsites including those of jungle lodges and homestays across Karnataka. 

The Prodigy behind Campervan Camps and Holidays 

Campervan Camps is not just the brainchild of Ramesh but also Vinay Luthra the director, advisor, and former head of forest force in the Karnataka Forest Dept. He has also developed Jungle Lodges & Resorts Ltd. The start-up has solid investor patronage which includes Anil Kumble, musician Vijay Prakash, TaxiForSure’s Aprameya Radhakrishna, and ex-Infosys honchos Subhash Dhar and Phaneesh Murthy.

The two are extremely elated as their start-up is  India’s first commercially approved premium motorhomes. Luthra said- “With Automotive Research Association of India approval, our RVs are certified.” The Campervan, for now, can play only in and about Karnataka. It slowly plans to venture into Goa and the test of India. 

Renting a Campervan 


The Caravan is a complete package deal inclusive of sightseeing, meals, and activities. 

  • Itinerary can be curated and personalized. One also gets to choose from pre-existing tour plans. 
  • Current itineraries include locations including historical sites (Belur-Halebid or Hampi), beaches (Om or Gokarna), wilderness (Kabini), sanctuaries (Bandipur, Sitanadi) and the lush Western Ghats.
  • Currently, a self-drive option is not available. Guests will be accompanied by a driver and guide. 

A Saunter in the Campervan


Want a tour of the motorhome? The interior of the Campervan is a beautiful marriage of German design with a touch of Indian elegance. Ensuring complete social distancing and privacy, there's a separate cabin for the driver and the guide.

  • You are greeted by a 4-seater lounge. 
  • The rear lounge seating is a convertible queen size bed for your snooze hours. 
  • The caravan boasts of two television sets and a Bluetooth speaker so you have music on the go. 
  • Accommodating a kitchen, it comes with a three hobs–induction, gas and electric; a kettle, toaster, large freezer for a week’s supply, microwave, RO system, and a refrigerator, enough for you to cook and gorge on delicacies. 
  • For your hygiene and lavatory needs- it has a separate shower and incinerator toilet, powered by solar panels, LPG and an external 230V power
  • The Campervan also houses 360-degree cameras, a speed governor, a GPS tracker, first-aid kits and fire extinguishers.

This is pretty much a steal deal!
