KOHIMA CAMP NAGALAND

29 November – 12 December 2023

About

Situated in the far reaches of north-east India, Nagaland is full of rolling hills, lush rain-forests and a rich tribal culture. There are sixteen different Naga tribes, once fearsome warriors and head-hunters, which proudly uphold their heritage. Elaborate head-dresses, costumes, folklore, music and dance create a vivid culture, not to be missed.

In the far-flung corners of the Indian sub-continent, Kohima Camp, a luxury tented, glamping (glamorous camping) experience which coincides with the ten-day Hornbill Festival, is one of a kind.Kohima Camp highlights the traditions, customs, and culture, of the Nagas, the last head-hunters of India.Vibrant, vivid and full of fierce pride, the Naga culture extremely photogenic with colourful costumes, dramatic headgear, and handcrafted weapons and jewellery, which adds to the exotic aura that surrounds these ancient tribes.

Hornbill Festival

The Hornbill Festival is a ten-day feast for your senses. From dynamic displays of ancient head-hunting rituals, to mock fights, music, dance, food and even a fashion show, there’s never a dull moment. Camp in style at the Kohima Camp with sumptuous beds, crisp bed linens, luxurious furnishings, bathroom suites with hot and cold running water, and delectable cuisine. Savour local favourites like Rice Beer and tribal recipes. Each tented suite has its own private butler to assist you with your every need.

Our luxury campsite is one of the top camping sites in India. It is situated in a region inhabited by the Angami, one of the major Naga tribes. In the late 1800s, the feudal warfare between tribes came to a loss when the British annexed this territory. Their primitive religion, Animism, was phased out and most Angamis converted to Christianity. Their primary occupation today is paddy cultivation, and they are known for their innovative farming techniques that are adapted to the local landscape and climatic conditions.
