Post a full day of ride, experience a sundowner while you enjoy your tea/coffee and settle down. Later part of the evening relax around the bonfire while drinks & dinner is served under the stars and great conversations happen while you unwind after an awesome day in the saddle. Our feedback from guests is rather special when they look back to their camp nights spent in the countryside of Shekhawati.
Special Curated Experiences For Non Riders:
Mallyka got this vision when she rode with her father on of his safaris and met many interesting people from all over the world. Guests used to be ecstatic and so wanted to share their experience with their loved ones once they went back home. It always occurred to her, how wonderful it would be if the others could also share this experience.
When you have a couple, family or a few friends together visiting who wish to experience our journey but only one of them is a rider and the rest would like to enjoy our adventure as much but cannot ride horses. That’s when all the wonderful ideas came together where Mallyka envisioned A Baisa’s Adventures which could be a great platform to make this dream true.
This is a great option to be a part of the full ride and yet enjoy your own adventure. One will be a part of the whole safari and experience it all while they accompany their loved ones. The jeep will be throughout with the riders as a follow up but it’s only recommended for people who would be comfortable on off roading tracks as it will be throughout in the countryside.
