Spending a night in a desert camp. We’ll take a camel ride at sunset, dine beneath a blanket of stars and soak up the blissful silence of the desert.

    Le Meridien (4.5-star) or The Grand Delhi (5-star)


  • Delhi

    Steeped in history and tradition yet undeniably modern and cosmopolitan, Delhi pulsates to a rhythm that is impossible to ignore. This intriguing city charms its visitors and leaves an impression that won’t soon be forgotten. We’ll kick-start our journey with a sightseeing tour of Old and New Delhi. We start at Raj Ghat in OId Delhi, the tranquil memorial to Mahatma Gandhi and his cremation site, before moving onto Jama Masjid; the largest mosque in India. Continuing to New Delhi, marvel at all 234ft of the striking hand-carved Qutab Minar and Grand red and white Tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayan, considered one of the architectural forerunners to the Taj Mahal. We finish with a drive past the Lutyens-designed India Gate and Presidential Palace.

  • Agra

    We wave goodbye to the sights and sounds of Delhi as we depart for Agra. Situated on the banks of the Yamuna River, Agra is a city celebrated for its rich concentration of magnificent Mughal-era buildings and its most recognised icon, the Taj Mahal. We arrive in the afternoon and check into our hotel. After some time to relax, we take a tour to what promises to be the most wondrously, breathtaking experience to be imagined. At sunset we view the architectural marvel and ‘love poem in marble’, the Taj Mahal. 20,000 craftsmen created this fitting memorial for Shah Jahan’s queen, Mumtaz Mahal.

    Trident Agra (4-star) or Taj Hotel & Convention Centre (4-star)


  • Jaipur

    This morning we continue to Jaipur, visiting Fatehpur Sikri en route; a deserted city built in 1569. The assortment of well-preserved, graceful buildings within the ‘Ghost City’ were once the bustling political capital of the Mughal empire for a little over a decade, before the complex lay virtually unknown for hundreds of years. We arrive in Jaipur and check into our hotel for the next two nights.

    Trident Jaipur (4.5-star)


  • Jaipur

    This morning we visit the vast Amber Fort, a classic, romantic Rajasthani Fort Palace with time-ravaged walls yet a virtual paradise inside. Later we visit the former royal residence of the City Palace and Jantar Mantar, home to the largest stone and marble crafted observatory in the world. We drive past the impressive façade of the Hawa Mahal ‘Palace of the Winds’, a five-storied example of Rajput architecture with 953 sandstone windows.

  • Khimsar

    Today we continue to Khimsar, where we will stay at the majestic 16th-century Khimsar Fort Hotel. Situated in the heart of rural India and perched on the edge of the Great Thar Desert, this historic fort is a real experience in itself. Enjoy tea on the terraces whilst surrounded by acres of lush green gardens and a vast assortment of birds, a true rarity of any desert in the world. Your evening here is free to explore the orchards and open courtyards among the sand dunes.

    A morning drive takes us to Jodhpur where we make a visit to Mehrangarh Fort, situated on a 125m-high hill, it is considered one of the most impressive and formidable structures in Rajasthan and envelops magnificent palaces. Later we visit the Jaswant Thada, a cluster of 19th-century royal cenotaphs in white marble. We venture deep into the desert to Samsara Luxury Camp; a real oasis nestled among the desert dunes - the perfect backdrop to a magical night under the stars.

We’ll also visit a Bishnoi village, famous for their rich cultural Rajasthani life and their true love for animals and nature.

  • Deogarh

    We drive to Deogarh today where we spend tonight in an impressive palace converted into a hotel. Standing 2,100 feet above sea level, Deogarh is cooler than surrounding Rajasthan. Our palace is superbly positioned and towers over the town below, affording spectacular views of the Aravali Hills and the rugged, rock-strewn countryside also dotted with lakes that mirror the vibrant blue sky. Deogarh has plenty to offer for the rest of your day, such as village walks and bird watching.

    Deogarh Mahal (4-star)


  • Deogarh - Udaipur

    Today we have arranged a unique experience on board a rural train from Deogarh to Phulad - a great way to meet with the locals. Originally built by the British in the 1930s, to connect the regions of Marwar and Mewar, the metre-gauge train travels through tunnels and bridges and past quaint railway stations where the famous book and movie ‘The Man Who Would be King’ by Rudyard Kipling unfolds. Upon our return to Deogarh, we depart for Udaipur. En route we visit Ranakpur, renowned for its Jain temple - one of the largest and most important Jain temples in India, situated in a remote valley of the Aravalli range.
