My friends and I were on a Rajasthan trip by RTDC. This happened to crop up and we decided to go for it. While we did not visit a lot around the village it was fun to see the black bucks, and different birds. The best part was interaction with the locals and getting to taste some of their local...

Thoroughly recommend the Bishnoi Village Safari Tour. Deepak was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and very personable. We visited a number of villages, which included a pottery demonstration, tasting of different agricultural crops (sesame, millet, lentils), experienced a traditional ceremony as well as a turban tying demonstration and weaving at another village. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

It is outside of jodhpur in a remote village. Car can be rented for a day tour to the village. It has lot to offer traditions and culture of maharo rajasthan. Worth a try.

Deepak warned us that we may not see much wildlife since the lake levels were extra high. But, even to his surprise, we saw male and female Blue bucks, an endangered gazelle, a spotted owl, and many waterbirds. We also saw the requisite water buffalos in ponds and camels along the road. We stopped by a daycare and met the... More

Our guide Deepak was friendly, on-time and informative No pressure to buy anything or tip anyone in the villages Shepherds village was the most authentic of all 4 villages visited. Bishnoi culture and history really fascinating story, yet the language barrier limits what you can learn from the villagers in their philosophy Overall a good half-day spent in the field.... More

We heard so much about the Bishnoi's and their environmental activism, so we really wanted to do this tour. Deepak was our guide and he first took us to his home from our hostel in a really old but sturdy Land Rover. We had tea and we were on our way. We visited a few villages and also stopped at... More

We spontaneously booked a trip at our guesthouse and had the pleasure to meet Deepak. We really enjoyed the tour and it was interesting to see all the different crafts. It was always possible to buy something but we didn't feel under any kind of pressure. People seemed genuinely interested in showing what they were doing. Deepak was definitely a... More

Seeing how this small community lives, retaining its simple way of life is educational for the whole family.

Raj was always checking in to ensure I was having a good time and gave me plenty of options for different activities. When we visiting all the shops- I felt no pressure to buy anything which...

We decided to go outside the city to visit some homes of people living in the villages in the surrounding area. Lonely Planet suggests Deepak Dhanraj of Bishnoi Village Safari so we booked him for an 8 o'clock pick. He was late of course but we checked via his mobile that he was on his way. He met us on...
