Horse Safari

Tailormade Your Tour



Rajasthan is a fascinating land full forts, palaces, legends and legacies. There are many ways to tour and take in its sights and sounds but for those who want something other than the run of the mill, more importantly for the lovers of all things equestrian, rejoice, for the horse safari in Rajasthan comes designed in many packages and takes you through some uncharted territory. Ride through the rugged rocky terrains of the Aravalis, the scenic Deogarh Plateau, the beautiful forested plains near Udaipur, Samode as well as the sandy and rocky fields of Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Bikaner regions. Pass through fascinating and exotic rural countryside, ruins of historical monuments and beautiful temples, explore all this and more in a truly regal manner on horseback.

Horse SafariThe Rajputs who ruled this land for centuries were also known as warrior kings, they were brave monarchs and many of them lay down their lives for their people. Their stories of conquest, passion and valour still live on in the hearts of the people and are a part of Rajasthani folklore. As the kings rode to battle, not only was every detail given to preparation for such an event but even their steeds were handpicked with much care. One of the most famous stories is of that of Chetak, a gray stallion that sacrificed his life for Maharana Pratap, though mortally wounded in war the stallion rode his king to safety. The royalty of Rajasthan has always taken great care to breed horses and to keep a clean and pure lineage. The result of many years of dedication and hardwork 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 gallant and fiercely loyal horses are now very popular on the polo fields and on a horse safari you could ride one too.

On a horse safari you would get to ride through the rugged terrain of the Aravali, India’s oldest mountain range, witness some beautiful locales and secluded places with panoramic views of dams, lakes, rivulets and fields, cross deep ravines, little hamlets, canter across dry desert terrain and search for shells at dry riverbeds. Explore the cenotaphs and tombstones of many brave and valiant Rajput warriors. Trot through trails which take you through villages, pass huge and ancient forts and temples. Take pleasure and of course take along a set of binoculars so that you can spot some of the interesting wildlife that inhabits this region, the desert fox and the black buck are common sightings. The evenings are for rewarding yourself for all that diligent exploring and straight backed riding, the campsites will provide entertainment enough to enliven your trip, colourful dances and soulful music will be the perfect complement to piping hot treats fresh from the tandoor. A trained chef usually accompanies the band of travellers and the meals speak for themselves. At night you have the option of choosing a fancy tent or staying in ancient palaces and the Garhs(small forts), which have now been turned into heritage properties. A trail guide and if need be even a translator is present throughout the journey.

Tailormade Your Tour



Facts and Figures
The safari starts from Jaipur and usually lasts for four days. Come prepared with your own boots and breeches. A hard hat is a good idea and a pair of comfortably fitted jeans or trousers would be suitable. Sun glasses and sun screen are an absolute must and a light pullover or jacket would do for the evening. Beds, linen and towels are provided for. The meals are included in the package as well, you will be served an English breakfast and varied Indian cuisine for lunch and dinner. You will have to pay just a little extra for liquor and aerated soft drinks. The horse safari is organised by some private tour operators and also by the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation.


Routes
The routes followed in the horse safaris are similar to that of jeep safaris yet the experience that you get is different, the reason being that the Rajputs themselves were known to be good horse riders and you get to relive that magical spell yet again. The nearby areas of Udaipur are among the most popular for horse safaris. Here, the undulating hilly terrain and vibrant countryside attract you like a magnet. The horse safaris have the facility of moving with your own comfortable pace. The most exciting horse safari destinations are Aodhi (Kumbhalgarh), Ghanerao, Anokhi village (Jaipur) and Shikarbadi (Udaipur).


Climate
Summers are very hot, as we expect from the Thar desert, with temperatures ranging from 32 C to 45 C. In western Rajasthan the temperature may rise to 48C, particularly in May and June. In Rajasthan it rains from the month of July to September, when the humidity increases, and it results in very uncomfortable climate. From mid-September to mid-March, the climate is amicable because it's cold as well as sunny weather and hence the climate is just right for travelling.


Best time:
A horse safari from mid-September to mid-March is most suitable for tourists.
