Going into the desert and experiencing the vastness of the Thar desert is something you will cherish for your lifetime.

For an adventurous twist in this calm safari, ride a quad bike or go for dune bashing through the glistening desert. Experience a stay in the lavish tents, just like the maharajas of the bygone era.

Relish the authentic Rajasthani dishes served within the camp area and enjoy the local artists’ folk song and dance performances in their vibrant and colourful attires. You can even sit around the bonfire in the middle of the desert, chit-chat with your folks and enjoy the view of the sky filled with twinkling stars. The next day, you can even witness the first rays of the sun making the sand look like a layer of gold, early in the morning. Not to worry, as you need not stay for the whole night in the desert if you don’t want to or have time constraints.
