It is undoubtedly one of the most popular places in Rajasthan, yet there's so much more to see and experience in the state. The best part about Rajasthan is its connection to roots, the culture and the upkeep of traditions.

The safari allows you to experience numerous things at the same time, including a camel safari, a stay at the local Jhumpa huts, a visit to the desert and a home cooked meal.

This offbeat safari will allow you to stay in the stunning vastness of Thar, live in the traditional style Jhumpa huts, rich with wall paintings and Rajasthani traditions.
