WHAT TO EXPECT

DETAILS

BOOKING SEASON

Safaris are operational between October and the end of April annually with Dundlod Fort logistics - with mix of groups from agents.

However we co-host a private ride with an extension which is exclusive to Bagual Horse Safaris.

 

Quite simply, we love India & have been travelling here since University Studies of the region. We like Bonnie very much and thus we like to put on something special, a bit different and bit more exclusive.

We have a family block printing business that operates in Jaipur which adds little something different to the experience.

Come! You'll get something profoundly connected with our bespoke journey. 

'' In the hush of the cool, dim dawn

When the shades begin to retreat;

And the Jackal bolts to his lair at the sound

of your horses feet;

When the great Kite preens his wings

& calls to his mate in the tree

and the lilac opens her buds ere the 

sun shall be up to see;

When the trailing rosebush thrills with the sparrow's pent up strife.

Oh! a ride in an Indian dawn, there is no such pleasure in life. ''

A Morning Ride
