Why you'll love this trip
  • Everyone’s seen a photo of the Taj Mahal, but nothing compares to seeing it in person in the glowing morning light – you and your family will understand what beauty really is with a viewing of one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
  • Feel the excitement build as you visit Ranthambhore National Park to hopefully catch a glimpse of a Bengal tiger stalking through the jungle – this place looks like the Jungle Book in real life!
  • Take part in a fun Bollywood dancing class in Jaipur and learn some moves made famous by India’s huge Bollywood film industry.
  • Enjoy an organic farm-to-table dinner in Jodhpur, right in the heart of the farmlands. Here, they grow the local produce completely chemical-free, and the kids might be able to pick some of the produce themselves.
  • Visit the National Camel Research Centre in the desert in Bikaner and learn about the importance of this integral animal in the desert ecosystem. Then, maybe try camel milk ice cream!
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Eden Reforestation Projects. Donations help them provide local employment opportunities and tackle climate change one tree at a time as they restore forests across 10 different countries.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Rajasthan is a desert state, so you need to prepare for hot, sticky temperatures during the day and cooler climates in the evening.
  • While there is no guarantee you’ll see a tiger during your safari in Ranthambhore, you may have a chance to see a variety of other wildlife, including hyenas, jackals, deer, langurs, marsh crocodiles, wild boars and birdlife.
  • You visit several temples on this trip, which requires a certain level of modesty. Please bring clothes covering the arms and pants/skirts past the knees. A light scarf is also good for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.

Wow! What an amazing adventure our family of 5 had. Our kids 12, 10 and 7 coped really well in such a different culture. Ravi our tour leader was sensational and made our trip so fulfilling and educational. Seeing 2 tigers in the wild on safari at Ranthambore was a highlight and the Taj Mahal words can’t describe. Just a brilliant experience with lifetime memories created.

What a fantastic family adventure we had in India with Intrepid Travel! From the amazing group leader who was so knowledgeable to experiencing the most beautiful parts of northern India. From the delicious food to meeting an awesome Aussie family that became great friends. We loved it all!

I can't recommend this trip highly enough. In my opinion a perfect introduction to the tourist sights and culture of this part of India. Our group leader went above and beyond to introduce us to both 'quintessential' Rajasthani experiences and those things that suited our group in particular. Three different nationalities of like-minded adults and kids added to our culturally rich and enjoyable trip! Thank you Intrepid and thank you Shakti!
