Speaking on the occasion, Tiger Ramesh – Founder, Campervan Camps and Holidays India Pvt Ltd. said, “We are excited to introduce the concept of Motorhome-based holidays in India. Our endeavour is to offer an all-new safe and exquisite travel experience that brings together comfort and style, like never before! As there are no readymade Motorhomes available in India for tourism purpose, we decided to design and manufacture our own Motorhomes. With these beautifully designed LuxeCampers, our aim is to provide travellers with the opportunity to deep dive into unexplored destinations by personalizing their travel trails and activities.”
The Bengaluru-based start-up founded by Tiger Ramesh has also built a tech platform that allows guests to choose from a set of recommended trails, as well as, customize and configure their own trails to various destinations. The company has partnered with small lodges, homestays and select campsites of Jungle Lodges and Resorts Ltd. at exquisite destinations, for halting the LuxeCampers and camping. These camping locations situated near pristine beaches, historical and yesteryear monuments, hill stations and wildlife safari spots, are pre-screened for safety, cleanliness and selecting excellent scenic spots for halting the LuxeCampers overnight.
Currently, the company provides personalized travel experiences to exotic locations in Karnataka and will very soon expand to rest of India. As part of the initial trails offered, the company has tied-up for camping sites at locations such as Aanejari, Bandipur, Bheemeshwari, Hampi, Kabini, Kodagu, Kudremukha, Sadashivgad, Sakleshpur, Sakrebyle, Sitanandi, and a few more locations under finalisation.
