Prepare yourself for mighty cities, verdant jungles teeming with flora and fauna, ancient ruins, luxurious palace hotels, and chic converted boutique accommodation, previously the fortified homes of Thakurs (landed gentry). From the vibrant bazaars and resplendent fortresses of the pink city Jaipur to the city of lakes Udaipur with its floating palaces and from the camel safari in the sam sand dunes of Thar in Jaisalmer and Bikaner to the abundant wildlife of Ranthambore and Bharatpur, these tastefully crafted Rajasthan holiday packages are your ticket to a bygone era of elegance pomp and romance.

Although Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur are frequented for a reason, there is also much to be seen away from the cities.

Here, you’ll get a glimpse of India’s romantic side.

Throughout Rajasthan, brightly coloured saris adorned by the village women punctuate otherwise sparse landscapes. Experience village markets, vibrant local fairs and festivals, see the occasional wedding: Indians will always extend a warm welcome. In addition to wildlife and tiger safaris, you’ll find leopard safaris at Bhenswara and Jawai, camel safaris in the Thar Desert, and horse safaris. Additionally, try thrilling Jaipur elephant safaris, off-road Jeep safaris in Jodhpur, and UNESCO World Heritage site treks.
