Rajasthan Tour

Rajasthan, the Desert State of India is patchwork of culture, history, languages, lifestyles and cuisine. Dialects change every 35 kilomentres and the cultures every 5! There’s a well trodden tourist route in Rajasthan – and it’s one we have attempted to avoid with this exotic tour, with exception of the Taj Mahal of course! We are able to arrange extentions to the itinerary. For example, Ranthambore, a former hunting preserve of the Maharajas of Jaipur. The reserve, with ravines and forests overlooked by an impressive eleventh-century fortress, is popular with tourists hoping to see tigers!

Bharatpur is home to the Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage site amd once the hunting preserve of the Maharaja. The reserve is a mixture of marshes, mature forests, sandy acacia scrub, and open grassland. Herons, egrets, geese, owls, cormorants, kingfishers, cranes - 364 species of birds have been identified in the park and it's one of the world's most important breeding and aquatic grounds. Motorized traffic is prohibited inside the park, so we'll visit the reserve by bicycle rickshaw.

We can also explore the town of Bharatpur, or alternatively, we can take a day trip (by car or bus) to Deeg. The town is described by Lonely Planet as a "small, rarely visited town, with an incongruously glorious palace, gardens and fortifications" …
