Please, do not expect elevators or escalators. Subject to availability, you may have an opportunity to experience elephant, camel, and/or canoe rides.The trip also takes you on game drives while you are in
This trip does not involve any strenuous hiking or climbing, however, we have some long day drives. But we will have ample opportunities to stop on the way to stretch our legs. Although, no major preparation is necessary for this trip, it’s recommendable that you start a soft training program such as walking, jogging, cycling, or aerobics about a month ahead of the trip to keep yourself physically fit.
Life on the Trip
A cultural sightseeing day, depending on the season, starts between 8.30 am to 9 am. We are picked up at our hotel by our guide and driver. We visit the sights and monuments or participate in activities and we will have lunch break around noon to 1 pm. After lunch, we again embark on the tour for 2 to 3 hours and we are brought back to our hotel late afternoon and our guide will generally leave us free. We will have time to take rest, write diaries or wander about ourselves.
When we are driving from once city to another, we usually spend 4-5 hours on the road with occasional stops for photography and drinks and snacks. Some days can be longer.
A jungle safari trip begins very early morning, sometime before dawn depending on the season. Chances of game viewing are higher very early morning or late afternoon. Usually, the morning safari begins around 6 a.m. following a cup of tea or coffee .We take safari style open jeep and ride for 3-4 hours. The parks are divided in different zones and we will visit different zones on each safari. We will be back to our lodge or tent by 9:30 to 10:00 am and then we will have a sumptuous breakfast. Then we will have time to rest, write diaries or chat with the lodge staff and naturalists. We will have a light lunch around 1 p.m. and we will embark on another safari around 2:30 pm or 3 p.m. Depending on the area we are visiting, we will be back to our lodge around 6:30 pm. Dinner is served around 8 p.m. and then we will sit around the bonfire and chat with other fellow travelers or naturalists about the sightings of the day.
Some forts requires climbing of stairs and you are required expected to be shape, unless you want to stay behind with the driver.
We try our best to adhere to the itinerary but it should be taken as a general guideline or scope of activities rather than an inflexible series of events and depending on the local conditions or time factor; it can change from the exact sight to see to the exact city to stop.
The accommodations in this trip are comfortable mid-range hotels, some of which are heritage properties.You will have private bathroom with running hot and cold water. In Pushkar, accommodation will be in deluxe tent with en suite bathroom.

They will show you the wonders of the areas that you would never discover on your own and also share their knowledge on Indian history, culture, and religion.
