A land of spectacular diversity, India still manages to excite and enthrall the senses of even the hardiest traveller like few other places on earth. Join us on a journey of discovery through one of its most breathtakingly diverse landscapes, as we travel from the chaotic splendour of its bustling capital, to the very edge of the Great Thar Desert.
After exploring a little something of the Mughal and colonial elegance of Delhi, we head west, towards the timeless landscapes of the Aravalli Hills and the desert cities that lie close to the border with neighbouring Pakistan. We will pass through lands that still reflect the fierce pride and majesty of the Rajput princes, staying in palaces and hunting lodges as we make our way towards the historic cities of Bikaner and Jaisalmer.
We follow in the footsteps of the emperors of old as we ride out by camel to camp beneath the desert sky, and in Jodhpur, the famous ‘Blue City’; we visit the magnificent fortress of Meherangarh, one of India’s most majestic architectural treasures.
