Built in the local tradition with mud and bricks the main Homestay Makaan at Kamp has a pleasant veranda and semi enclosed living room that works as a sit out area, tea break space and peaceful reading room.
The high and heavy gauge metal roof has been thatched with local grass which regulates the temperature and keeps things cool in the summer.
The overall effect is one of a Jungle or plantation home.
The main Homestay Makaan is appointed with two large 400 square foot rooms which are kitted to accommodate a family each. Parents with two kids or three adults can comfortably enjoy their stay here. The washrooms have western systems and are highlighted with handmade wash basins.
The Homestay Huts
Kamp Kamouflage is spread over almost 4 acres of typical Kanha forest land. Dense groves of trees, open grasslands and undulating rocky patches make Kamp a microcosm of the magnificent Kanha National park. Here one can find two Mud and brick huts built once again in the local architectural style.
Arched sit-outs frame large airy rooms topped with spacious bath and wash area, our mud huts are uniquely ventilated from all four directions by a simple and ingenious use of bamboo and mosquito net. The hexagon floors tiles are from Balaghat and the all our furniture and woodwork here is sourced from the recycled wood market in Jabalpur.
The huts are segregated into three parts, the sitting and sleeping area are separated by a simple curtain wall and the wash area gets an eight foot tall mud wall.
All our living areas are appointed with examples of Ameya’s photographs of views of Kanha National Park and its diverse wildlife.
We have 4 comfortable family rooms, two in the main Homestay Makaan and two Large Huts. We can easily accommodate 12 people and up to 15 in tight fit. All rooms are fitted with Western Toilet systems and have running water at room temp. Hot water is provided by buckets.
All rooms are fitted with Desert Coolers. We have no air conditioning/TV/Internet. Unfortunately mobile connectivity has reached Kamp but thankfully it is quite temperamental.
The hub of life in Kamp is the Kitchen with its attached Dining area. We have an open kitchen policy at Kamp and the physical kitchen reflects that approach. An open plan kitchen allows our guests to enjoy the aroma of fresh food being cooked and accommodates any desires they may have to try out their hands at a dish or two.
Our dining area is airy and offers views all around. We can easily accommodate 10/12 adults in our dining area in one go and our dining tables and benches are truly unique. If you can’t figure out from the photos you will have to come to Kamp and hear the story of the dining glory.
Our open kitchen idea extends itself further by inviting our local friends to come over and cook for us. Wood fired Dum Biryani, Mutton Korma and a special recipe for Dhaniya fish curry are cooked lovingly by our friends who are drivers and guides working in Kanha National Park.

The Power Plant
Kamp Kamouflage Homestay is a pure solar powered property. We have a 4 KV solar power plant and we are the only pure solar powered tourism project in India.
We run our entire operation using solar power as our primary source and have a diesel generator as back-up only. Our power plant is Sukaam inverter based with Solar Panels from Maharaja Solar from Delhi. The battery back-up system and all wiring/cabling has been expertly set up by Laxman from Maharaja Solar.
The Water Supply
As with power so to with water, we are totally self sufficient with one bore well with has a simple hand pump fitted. The cool water from this pump is highly refreshing and we strong recommend an open bath at the hand pump to wash away the day’s tiredness.
Our drinking water comes from our well. Called a poor man’s well because of the conditions it was built in, it has wonderful sweet water and all the locals at Kamp drink it straight off the tap. For our guest we offer this mineral water after boiling it.
Perched on the edge of Mukki Khatia Road, the Kamp Homestay is Kamouflaged by the Kanha National Park to the east and north, forest lands of Village Parsatola on the south and the rice fields of Village Sarekha on the west.
