This tour is multi-faceted. I saw interesting demonstrations of pottery and weaving. The pottery demo was fantastic! Travel can be a learning experience and today was no exception. I went on the safari to see the wildlife and things got wilder than I expected. We stopped in one Bishnoi village where in honor of my arrival they made Amal which... More

The young woman, Neha who lead our tour was wonderful. She shared information about her life and took us around to the villages to see how these people live. We were then served a delicious meal (the best we've had in India so far). Highlight of the trip to Rajasthan so far!

My wife and I went on the Bishoi Village Safari tour last month on our trip through Rajasthan, and honestly it was one of the most memorable experiences of our trip. Our guide Deepak was very courteous and knowledgable, and he introduced us to a world and way of life that we never would have gotten to see had we... More

The Bishnoi Village Safari was the highlight of our trip to India. Our guide, Deepak, was highly knowledgable about rural village life and efforts to bring back local crafts to stimulate the economy. He serves as a liaison between resources in Jodphur and villagers in dire poverty. We visited several villages, including potters, shepherds, weavers, and one populated entirely by... More

Very unique set of values for the nature loving village folks. Great lovers of animals and preservers of nature. They live a simple life, although one can see the modernity creeping into their lives. Only hope that the modernity does not contaminate their values.

Our family of four (mum, dad, son 19, daughter 17) loved this tour with the extroverted and energetic guide Raj! He had us all laughing and enjoying the highlights of the nature reserve, local villages, crafts villages and sights on this great little safari tour in his decrepid American Jeep! We bumped around for 4-5 hours and really enjoyed it.... More

Our hotel arranged the trip with Deepak and Bishnoi Village safaris and we had a great time. Deepak was very relaxed, flexible and keen to allow us to manage the amount of time we spent at different places... which with two young kids is all important. We had a great time with Deepak and got to see his wonderful Marwari... More

Tired of the buzzling cities and of the long train trips when arrived to Jodhpur, we accepted the offer to participate in an afternoon jeep safari to the Bishnoi villages. Our wish to see as much of the nature and wild life as possible and to avoid shopping and all hassle around that was respected during this fantastic trip. It... More

Booked a village safari with this outfit through our hotel in Jodhpur. Very pleasant, interesting, informative guide - who was immensely proud of his jeeps - which were fun to get in and out off if sitting in the back... Is a bit of a tourist trail through a number of different villages, workshops but overall very informative and got... More
