Best Season for Safari
Winter is the season for jeep safaris (October to March) and to attempt it
in summer would be impossible. In the cold months, the dry climate and the
reflection of the sun's heats on the sand can make the day under the sun
warm, and the nights bitterly cold. It is advisable, therefore, to carry a
mix of woolens and lighter clothing, and to have suntan lotions and
moisturizers for the skin.
How to Approach
You can contact travel agents, if you are interested in the jeep safari.
The travel agents will help you in you organising the safari, according to
your interests. The jeep safaris takes you to the remote villages of
Rajasthan, along with some of the most charming places of Rajasthan. You can
plan you trip in the afternoons.
After the trip is booked, an advance group moves ahead to set the evening's
camp-usually self-sustained, with its own kitchen (food is cooked over wood
fire), and tented accommodation. Baths are prepared for the travelers, and
kerosene lamps used for lighting. A bonfire is organised, around which
evening cocktails and dinner is served. Here, in this enchanted setting with
the stars looming large under the dark sky, locale performers are invited to
sing, dance, play a musical instrument or two.
Meals served are mostly Rajasthani cuisine with vegetables and, usually,
chicken and mutton cooked in fiery spices. Buttermilk and yogurt
accompaniments are best to cool the palate. However, on request and with
advance notice, simple Western pasta and salads can be prepared.
