Trip Overview

A unique “Day Drive Desert Experience” where we engage you in an off-road adventure through the semi arid desert of Rajasthan and showcase the local communities, culture and wildlife.

We set off from your hotel after breakfast and before long, we are hitting the dirt tracks and camel cart tracks.  After an exciting, 4x4 drive through a dry river bed, we arrive at the hutments and villages of the local communities.  As our guests, you are given the opportunity to enter their homes and witness their simple and colourful lifestyle.  You are welcome to interact with them as we explain to you their customs and culture and how they have always lived in complete harmony with nature.  En route, you also get the opportunity to see the wildlife that is abundant in this area like the black buck, chinkara, neel gai, wild boar, desert fox and a large variety of bird life, migratory and indigenous.

After a couple of home visits, we serve you a delicious picnic lunch at a scenic spot or under the shade of a tree.  This is followed by a visit to a village where we introduce you to a senior member of the local community who invites you to take part in a ceremony of friendship and brotherhood and then personally takes you for a walk around the village so that you can see craftsmen at work and get a glimpse into the village life of western Rajasthan.

We drop you back at your hotel by sundown leaving you with memories of a rural visit completely off the beaten path and unlike anything else you will experience during your visit to Rajasthan.
