This expe­ri­ence trans­ports you back in time as we cross the sparse desert ter­rain, through nos­tal­gic vil­lages of rural India where we inter­act with the local vil­lagers and tribal nomads. We receive “Old World” Indian hos­pi­tal­ity in our lux­ury tents and camps, where you are served gourmet sit-​down meals by liv­er­ied staff in the mid­dle of the wilder­ness. We also include a stay at “Cas­tle Man­dawa”, which was built in 1755 AD in a town­ship that was a trad­ing out­post for the ancient car­a­van routes from China to the Mid­dle East.

Many peo­ple from “All over the World” who appre­ci­ate won­der­ful things have already come to stay and expe­ri­ence the thrill of Mandawa…There is so much to do here you will not want to leave. They have great facil­i­ties for what­ever your heart’s desire is… This is a Great Adven­turethat every­one what­ever age or nation­al­ity can enjoy. Most peo­ple today live in crowded cities and never see the sun or the clean out­doors. Here your lungs can breathe the pure fresh air!

This is not just sight­see­ing but” “Liv­ing your dream”. The best way to make new friends is to par­tic­i­pate in a great sport like Horse­back Rid­ing. Many peo­ple met and mar­ried because of a horse! Believe me!! Or they became young again and went back to the sport of their youth.

You never for­get how to ride!!So don’t hes­i­tate one minute. Join us for the time of your life!

The sight­see­ing is world famous and very inter­est­ing. With exam­ples of whole build­ings being “Fres­coed” by the local own­ers. Peo­ple come from all over the world just to see this! Amazing!

**For those of you who have lim­ited time and want to have this mar­velous expe­ri­ence and are new to this type of group trail riding.

*We rec­om­mend, our 7 Day — Palace to Palace, Safari itin­er­ary. **Ask about 2 day extension!

Of course we have longer treks for large groups that have more time to devote to this great sport. Just con­tact: Inter­na­tional Voy­ager, Inc. with details and it will be arranged.


Local own­er­ship and breed­ing is flour­ish­ing. Big and Beautiful:

A typ­i­cal day of happy peo­ple on your safari. A morn­ing horse-​back ride to a national wild life sanc­tu­ary, then trav­el­ing in a Jeep Safari to see the ani­mals. Lunch would be wait­ing at your next camp site, a ban­quet meal under the shade of “khe­jri” trees.

At Dusk, your group arrives, safe & sound, at camp or hotel to enjoy a great din­ner and entertainment!

At night­fall, we orga­nize a spe­cial per­for­mance of tra­di­tional folk dancers, musi­cians or a danc­ing “Mar­wari”horse to enter­tain you while you dine. Our lux­ury tented camps offer com­fort­able overnight accom­mo­da­tion. In some cases we also use nice small Haveli’s for your com­fort and con­ve­nience. Who knows? If you like, maybe a camel will be your mode of trans­port for the next leg of your safari through the sand dunes in the morning.

Or you may want to opt for our Big Dune 4-​Wheel drive, Spe­cial Vehicles.

** If you have Non-​Horse rid­ing mem­bers in your group that would like to par­tic­i­pate in the “Big Dune”

expe­ri­ence. Please let us know and our oper­a­tions spe­cial­ist will con­tact you with the pack­age details.

Each Safari is cus­tomized to blend tra­di­tion, eques­trian cul­ture and adven­ture. Cre­at­ing a mem­o­rable expe­ri­ence! Check out the Ears!! The horses of course! This is true devo­tion to an Hon­ourable pro­fes­sion by a won­der­ful Man and trainer!

Our safaris are based in Man­dawa, a remote feu­dal prin­ci­pal­ity in the cen­tre of the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. It was a trad­ing out­post for the ancient car­a­van routes that stopped here from China and the Mid­dle East. The Rajput ruler of Man­dawa, Thakur Nawal Singh, built a fort in 1755 to pro­tect this out­post. The town­ship that grew around the fort soon attracted a large com­mu­nity of traders, who set­tled here. Today, the tra­di­tion is con­tin­ued by his Ances­tors.

What makes our safari tour more mem­o­rable is the expe­ri­ence of rid­ing pure bred Indian horses like Marwari’s in the Indian coun­try side, where you inter­act with the local peo­ple and some­times nomads. You stay in lux­u­ri­ous camps with cul­tural enter­tain­ment, some­times accom­pa­nied by Folk Musi­cians. This way you get to see the real India and the expe­ri­ence becomes very mem­o­rable when shared with like-​minded peo­ple who love horses and nature.

* All safaris can be pro­longed or short­ened accord­ing to your wishes.*
