Horse Safari


A 2 to 6 days horse safari riding through the wooded hills of the Aravalis or towards the desert region of Jodhpur is a wonderful way to see rural Rajasthan, accompanied by a Syce and Thakur (local landowner), most days will involve 4 to 6 hours riding and overnight in Comfortable Camps or local Landowners’ Forts and Homes (full board).

Suitable for small groups between 2 to 12 persons.


Rajasthan – the land of the Rajputs, is known for its kings, fearless warriors and beautiful women. It’s also known for its forts, palaces, and temples which are a reminder of the glorious past. Kingdoms were carved and established by the Rajputs on horseback, while swords were stained with enemy blood. Horses were highly priced and a Rajput warrior would give anything to own a good horse. Great care was taken to breed horses and to keep a clean and pure lineage. The result of many years of dedication and hard work helped create breeds like the Marwari, Kathiawadi and the Sindhi, each having its own distinct characteristics and bred solely for the purpose of war. These horses were noted for their stamina and fierce loyalty to their masters. With these gallant steeds, the Rajputs became famous worldwide. There is an old saying:
“If God didn’t create the horse, He wouldn’t have created the Rajputs”
In Rajasthan, you can have the pleasure of riding through trails dotted and marked with cenotaphs and tombstones of many brave and valiant Rajput warriors. Trails which take them through villages, past huge and ancient forts and temples. Nights can be spent in ancient palaces and Garhs (small forts) now owned by the descendants of those glorious Rajput rulers. These palaces not only provide modern amenities but cultural programmes and entertainment is also available. Evenings are spent at camp sites which are splashed with colour in the form of local folk dance and music. These safaris will be escorted by an English speaking Trail Guide.
