It’s the morning Jeep safari that takes our guests to the Bishnoi Village of Marwar region for a close look into the Rajasthani Desert Life!

Unlike the never ending sand dunes of Jaisalmer, this particular region of Jodhpur has dry scrub, and is full of mini settlements which are called ‘Dhani’. People in these Dhanis are indulged in livestock rearing, earthen pottery making, farming, weaving durries/carpets and other activities for living. During the Village Jeep Safari you also get to meet the Bishnois. They are the “world’s oldest environmentalists”, who hold trees and animal life sacred.

The Jeep Safari also takes you to the Desert wildlife of Jodhpur, which is also a very interesting and intriguing part of the rural Marwar. During winter, between November and February, the migratory winter birds arrive here in thousands to offer an awe inspiring experience to the spectators. It is recommended that you bring your binoculars.
