Looking for an Escape from the daily routine?
We offer offbeat camping retreats for everyone needing a break from the routine city life of Hyderabad, without having to travel huge distances. A fantastic way to get away from it all, and immerse in nature.

We’re more interested in the location, the view, the ambience, and whether it allows campfires. We understand that different people are looking for different camping experiences; families need half-decent facilities and plenty of room for the kids, couples need peace and quiet, walkers want to explore straight from the tent. 

Whatever you’re looking for, as long as you favour the characterful rather than the commercial, smaller rather than larger sites, and value location or views over pristine facilities, then you’re in the right place. We have currently setup 3 off-grid camping sites amidst scenic settings of Vikarabad Forest area.

And the most beautiful part is the bonfire. It was awesome. The staffs were also friendly and helped a lot. Really had a great stay at Penguin Campaign.

  • review rating 4  Everything was taken care well. It is a safe and well maintained camping site with a good view of the lake. One could happily spend his/her weekend with their buddies and have a peaceful camping. Take odomos with you as it is lake side camp site we could expect some mosquitoes in the wild. The bedsheets in the tent where having a bit of bad smell which didn't allow us to sleep well this being on the flip side rest all was very good.

    review rating 4  Good experience. It is at a nice secluded and at the banks of a lake. Staff are courteous. Food taste is average, it was little spicy. However bachelors are partying through night and spoiling serenity of the place.
