Tailor-made Tour 16 days from £3678 per person
Places Visited: Samode, Jaipur, Nagaur, Jaisalmer, Osian, Jodhpur, Rawla Narlai, Ranakpur, Devigarh, Udaipur, Bhainsrorgorah
A startled blackbuck, the bewitching smile of a village beauty, the proud lined face of a tribal chief and the ruggedness of the mighty Thar; mile upon mile of golden sands, loping along on a camel’s back - romance truly rides with you.
This is Rajasthan at its best; cities where splendid palaces and havelis evoke their princely past, a camel safari through the sand dunes at Osian, the exquisite Jain temple at Ranakpur, simple yet colourful rural life at Narlai, a luxury spa at Devigarh and the Chambal River in Bhainsrorgarh; staying in some charming royal mansions, you will discover the very heart of the “Land of Kings.”
