Akin to the Grand Canyon in Arizona, Gandikota - India's Grand Canyon is gaining popularity amongst tourists & campers alike. Sunrise from Gandikota is an amazing sight.

Last weekend, we booked and went to the bucket list camp (Gandikota, Belum caves and Horshey hills) in Andhra Pradesh. Since this is my first camp in exoticamp, the Hearts ????of the people in our squad (including Touristers, Guider, Driver, Photographer,etc)are more beautiful???? than the places we visited. There we formed a new family. But, time doesn't permit us to share more things, Although it's one of the Best memories???? to everyone among there. The people are so adorable? and Places are more attractive.. Always Nature stands Top ????. Hoping to explore more places with exoticamp...! ????

Jan 2019: My first camping experience and that too during New year's. I am so so so happy that I took this decision of camping with Exoticamp. I generally don't do reviews but this camp deserves it! Vagamon is breathtakingly beautiful and the fact that i could enjoy the nature to it best was because of the superb facilities organized by Vijay and team. The host were so friendly and make u very comfortable in the very first day of camping. I could not have asked for a better start of 2019! This trip is more about relaxing in your own space and enjoying new year as you want and Exoticamp lets you do that. Thanks again guys. I am looking forward to go on more camps with you all as undoubtedly you are the best! Feb 2019: I camped again with these guys this time with Suknaya and i loved it. Thank God i didn't miss out this one else i wudve regretted big time ???? gandikota camping is a different experience and i realized I can explore more than i cud ever imagine. Highly recommend. Looking forward to camping again!

Exoticamp made my first camping experience an wonderful one. I went with these guys to gandikota trip and it was awesome. With non alcoholic policy and friendly grp of ppl, it was a superb experience. So i highly recommend choosing exotic camp whether you are going solo or with a group of friends. Will give them 5 stars whole heartedly
