Life in the colonial era was life on the move for government officials as they had to tour extensively. Dak Bungalows originally intended as sorting and transit points for the post (Dak) evolved into rest houses for these touring officials and spawned a whole new culture that redefined travelling in India in that era.
Life in tents was very much a part of this culture. The Sahibs entourage with its baggage train of attendants and camping equipment travelled in advance so as to ensure that everything was in readiness before the Sahib’s arrival. These encampments were elaborate and tents had all the comforts of home.
At the Dak Bungalow, we recreate for our guests the ambience of that era when camping was the norm.
