The safari was disappointing as we only saw a couple of animals; peacocks and gazelles. The driver was on the phone most of the ride therefore we did not get much insight on where we were going. The driver stopped in the middle of the road to talk to an elder about opening a hotel as we waited in the... More

Loved the 1964 Russian jeep we travelled in. Our guide gave us plenty of detail. Saw the wild Blue Bull antelopes and Gazelles. Went onto visit a pottery workshop. Then to a local home to see an opium ceremony. Drove through a Shepard town then onto a seeing co operative. This was the only bit of sales where we felt... More

If you have interest in not only seeing the small villages but actually meeting the local people, this the tour for you. We visited 4 homes and met the people that live there. We saw traditional clothing. Visited a newley wed couple the bride shared her wedding album with us. We had a much better understanding of arranged marriages. The... More

I very much wanted to get an appreciation of the Bishnoi culture but the tour that I took felt like little more than being driven to three different places to buy crafts (made by talented people). I saw some animals (always nice) but had no personal contact that helped me to appreciate their culture at all. It seems as though... More

The Bishnoi village safari experience with the brother duo of Deepak and Dhanraj along with their nephew Vishnu Pratap was just fantastic. Right from the lunch served at their farmhouse which is a thali comprising of typical rajasthani curries, vegetable served with millet bread (bajara roti) along with chappatis, paratha, curd and pickle was delicious. Post lunch we drove to... More

Did the half day Bishnoi village tour with Dhanraj followed by lunch at his place cooked by his wife. It was an amazing experience , apt for people who want to get a peek in the lives of the locals. A must do for people who want to see black bucks , antelopes, siberian cranes and peacocks grazing in the... More

This was one of the best things we did whilst in Rajasthan, and not only because it was interesting to learn about the Bishnoi way of life. The best part of the tour was our guide - Deepak. He is such a nice, genuine, honest, loving man and it made the day really special. Before doing this tour we'd been... More

Of course it's taylor made for tourists. But the Bishnoi villagers are friendly and show you their homes and customs. You get to understand their everyday life. And learn about the Bishnoi philosophy.

Please ignore the poor reviews. This is one thing you really ought to do when you are in Jodhpur. Dhanraj is one of the most courteous guys i have ever met. The whole experience is overwhelming. Do not skip at any cost. Also, please have lunch at Mr. Dhanraj's house. His wife is an excellent cook and the food will... More

Would not recommend to travelers unless this is your ONLY chance to get outside the cities in Rajasthan. We didn't see anything we hadn't already seen while driving from Udaipur to Jodhpur and passing through small towns near Ranankpur. (Note: The Bishnoi look like every other rural villager across Rajasthan so it's not like they are a special tribe that... More
