Our safari camp near a little lake in central Rajasthan
Galloping the Indian desert
Our Horseback Safaris usually go along off-the-beaten tracks through the hilly landscape of the Aravalli Mountains. The riders can experience unspoiled nature and the unique culture of the hill tribes of Rajasthan. Our destinations are places of historical or cultural significance such as the medieval town of Chittor or the hill fort of Kumbhalgarh. Some of our Safaris are connecting major festivals in Rajasthan such as the Pushkar Camel Fair and are bound to certain dates. Many of our safaris are also going through a number of wildlife sanctuaries such as the Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary or the Sita-Mata Wildlife Sanctuary so our riders can enjoy the spectacular Indian flora and fauna. Our Aravalli Wildlife and Nature Safari is especially designed to experience the wildlife of the Aravalli Mountains, famous for Leopards, Wolfs and deer. In the Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary also the rare Sloth bear can be spotted. Our Mewar Trail combines the pleasure of riding through the interesting however less frequented Sita-Mata National Wildlife Sanctuary and the experience of seeing a very historic part of the former princely state of Mewar. Our riders will spend two nights in our beautifully renovated 18th century rawla or village fort, being able to learn first hand about the feudal past of the Rajputs.
On our horseback safaris accommodation is in our safari camp set up in the Indian bush at scenic places, often at lakeshores or near old ruins or on extensive farms.
Our safari camp consists of max. 6 comfortable double tents (9x9 feet)with proper beds, flooring, windows for ventilations and a pre-tent. The tents are grouped around our dining area inside the camp bounderies made up of richly decorated textiles. On the side is our open-air kitchen and a few meters away the bathroom trolley with shower and toilet facilities. Hot water is provided in buckets.
All our safaris are organized as close to nature as possible and are eco-friendly. We use local supplies and groceries and prevent unnecessary waste. Cooking and lighting is done with gas as not to cut done forest wood. Our safaris provide rural employment as we occupy local people as helpers, guides or artists. We strongly emphazise local culture and try to help preserve it in giving the peaople a sense of value and pride. Our main aim is to show the unique culture and ecology of Rajasthan to our guests and connect this with an unforgettable equestrian experience.
