The Shikar Featured

The Shikar Tents are commonly known as Swiss Cottage tent. These tents were originally fabricated as a tent suite for high ranked aristocrats and army officials. However, in the recent times it is considered as the most suitable and is largely preferred for camping purposes. These tents can be normally found at resorts, hotels, lodges, farm houses, base camps etc.

The style, lavishness and comfort of these tents provides with the same coziness of home even in the wild and untamed places.

A typical Shikar tent comprises of a master bedroom with sitting chairs, a courtyard and one bathroom.
