Rajasthan Jeep Safari


Rajasthan Jeep SafariIf the idea of a camel safari in India does not appeal to you, then we have an alternative. Contrary to the swaying moments of camel you may enjoy a desert safari in India on a jeep. Discover the royal land of Rajasthan in a jeep. The travel destination of the Thar Desert in Rajasthan beckons all adventure seekers to the jeep safari. Check out the stretches of sand dunes. The jeep safari in Indian desert will captivate you in the charming culture of the Rajasthan. Most jeep safari operators route journeys through the desert so you are close to villages, but remain hidden from them. In the afternoons, trips to the villages can be planned. An advance group moves ahead to set the evening's camp-usually self-sustained, with its own kitchen (food is cooked over wood fire), and tented accommodation. Baths are prepared for the travelers, and kerosene lamps used for lighting. A bonfire is organized around which evening cocktails and dinner is served. Here, in this enchanted setting with the stars looming large under the dark sky, village balladeers and minstrels are invited to sing, dance, play a musical instrument or two.

Most meals will be Rajasthani cuisine with vegetables and, usually, chicken and mutton cooked in fiery spices (after a while you get addicted to the chillies). Buttermilk and yogurt accompaniments are best to cool (and calm) the palate. However, on request and with advance notice, simple Western pasta and salads can be prepared. Don't ask for sandwiches, however, for bread is an unknown factor in the villages, and you'll have to get by on the more-than-sufficient Indian varieties that will be served before you.

It goes without saying that winter is the season for such jeep safaris (October to March) and to attempt it in summer would be impossible. In the cold months, the dry climate and the reflection of the sun's heats on the sand can make the day under the sun warm, and the nights bitterly cold. It is advisable, therefore, to carry a mix of woolens and lighter clothing, and to have suntan lotions and moisturizers for the skin.
