Rajasthani Nights - Dreamy Desert Luxury Tour of North India

12 days from £4,550 per person

Explore the best of Rajasthan's desert landscapes in style with this luxury tour. Our suggested itinerary starts in Jodhpur, the blue city, with two nights at Raas, a magical boutique hotel located in the very heart of Jodhpur's walled city. With views over the awesome Mehrangarh Fort, a relaxing spa, swimming pool and selection of heritage suites, this is the place to stay if you want to be in the heart of the action. Spend a morning zip lining around Mehrangarh Fort and an afternoon exploring the city's tempting baazars, accompanied by your private guide. From Jodhpur drive to Mihir Garh, a secluded retreat located outside the small village of Rohet. Relax by the desert-facing infinity pool, while away the hours in your private plunge pool or make the most of your surrounding landscapes on horse back or on a village safari around the nearby Bishnoi villages.

After a few days of rest and relaxation journey up to the desert town of Jaisalmer for two nights at Killa Bhawan, a heritage hotel built into the fort's walls. Watch the sunset over the city from the hotel's impressive roof terrace after a day exploring Jaisalmer's Desert Festival. The ancient city, which dates from the 12th century, can easily be explored by foot; don't miss Jaisalmer's impressive Jain temples and former palaces. After two busy days at the festival, retire to The Serai, an idyllic tented camp located in the sandunes surrounding Jaisalmer. On your first afternoon enjoy a sun downer camel ride, before returning to the camp and enjoying dinner around its open campfire. The following day make the most of the the camp's activities; enjoy a romantic picnic in the wilderness, take a jeep safari through the dunes or walk around the camp's organic vegetable garden.

Once rested and rejuvenated the tour will then take you to the Osian Camel Camp, a small and atmospheric tented camp. The following day take a camel ride around the local tribal villages, or simply soak up your surroundings by the pool. The camp is owned by the grandson of the Maharaja of Jodhpur, Reggie Singh, who you may be lucky enough to meet over cocktails at the camp's safari bar. The following morning return to Jodhpur's magnificent Umaid Bhawan Palace for your final night in style.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
