Kerala Announces Caravan Tourism policy

'Caravan' refers to the specially built vehicles that are used for travel, relaxation, and stay. The concept of Caravan tourism became quite popular across the globe due to its flexibility and freedom to the holiday. It promotes comfortable and safe family tours even in those places where there is a lack of hotel accommodations.

With the increasing demand for wildlife, adventure, and pilgrimage tourism, there is a need to stay in remote areas, deserts, or forests where there are inadequate accommodations. In such situations, Caravan tourism can certainly help the tourists by providing all facilities, thereby adhering to quality standards and security norms. 

Where pandemic has hit the tourism industry so badly, Kerala tourism is trying to reinvent itself by launching 'Caravan Tourism' which will roll out in few months. Launched by Kerala Tourism Minister P.A.Mohammed Riyas, the Caravan Tourism policy promises a safe and nature-connected experience to visitors. To ensure tourists' security, real-time monitoring of Caravans will be arranged.

With the launch of houseboats that made Kerala the most visited and global destination by giving tourists a wonderful experience, this new project of Caravans tourism will be a successful product. Moreover, the spots which are least explored will now be easily made accessible with the help of this project.

There will be two types of Caravans. In one type, there can be 2 guests accommodated whereas, the other one can accommodate a family of four members. The two major parts of the Caravan project are Tourism Caravan and Caravan Parks.
