Took this tour from a local hotel and it started okay. The guy from this tour company was easy to talk to. But during the entire travel, he basically never told me anything at length about Bishnoi people. Not their customs in life, what makes them different from others in the area, and never even discussed the memorial for the Khejarli massacre -- it was never even mentioned and we surely didn't see it if it's around somewhere. That's a huge event in their history. How do you not talk about that??

I learned more about the Bishnoi people by reading wikipedia the night before. It was that bad of a tour.

Then we went to his dad's place where there are a few of the huts they recently built to rent out as homestays. Then his dad took me for a walk around the village... a village made with all typical concrete structures that looks like any other Indian village occupied with seemingly very typical locals. Unless they were Bishnoi peoples, and if so, there was no commentary or education on why they're different. They could have been visitors from Delhi for all I knew. Didn't look any different from people from Delhi.

His dad did show me a bunch of horses in a field, though. Sigh.

And on the way back, the guide (one of the brothers) decided that he wanted to leave early so he got in a car with his friends and took off to wherever, letting his dad drive me back to a place that wasn't even my hotel. I was in a new city with no idea where I was. They didn't care, nor did they take the time to ask or confirm that I could get to my destination timely or safely. I got booted out with no word in English and the guide that I paid was somewhere on some road riding with his friends while I'm trying to figure the rest out by myself.

Horrible business practices, wouldn't use again, and, honestly, you shouldn't either.

The BISHNOI VILLAGE SAFARI is organized by the Prajapat Brothers and is a highly popular off beat trip ,while visiting Jodhpur. It starts of with an early morning pick up and then a lovely drive till you arrive at the BLACK BUCK SANCTUARY. Here you can sight the very shy ,but majestic BLACK BUCK....if you are patient. There are also peacocks and birds. From here you are taken to villages where one can witness HAND BLOCK PRINTING, POTTERY and DHURRIE WEAVING. The safari ends with lunch ,that is if you have opted for it. My advice is .....PLEASE DO NOT MISS THE LUNCH. Lunch consisted of fresh home cooked simple but delicious bajre ki roti, kadi, aloo ki sabzi and the KER SANGRI. The ker sangri is a local produce and is seasonal which is believed to have numerous health benefits and is simply DELICIOUS .We ate like there was no tomorrow 😃😃. This trip gave us a brief insight into the simple life of these artisans. It was an amazing experience. A MUST TRY......OFFBEAT JODHPUR!!! Leave early.....carry sun protection gear and water with some light snacks. The Prajapat Brothers are a very enterprising lot...they also have cottages that are very quaint ...if you would want to spend the night.

They delivered what was promised to perfection. They showed us deer (including blackbuck). They then took us to a place where we could see block printing (around 5-10 minutes demo) on clothes, another place where we could see a weaving demo (5 minute demo) and a pottery centre (15 minute demo) where we could try it out. Overall activity from pickup from Jodhpur to drop lasted around 4 hours

Positive: Delivered everything as promised as above.

Point to consider: This may be more suited for foreign tourists rather than domestic tourists as we would have seen similar activities at or near our hometowns. If block printing, weaving and pottery are something that interests you, then go for it.

Today, we had a nice experience in the village and exposure to rural artisanship and traditional knowledge. The people were homely and the local cuisine was the real delicacy enjoyed by us.

Our primary interest was wildlife that we enjoyed during our safari in the morning. My sincere thanks go to Ashok ji and his family.

We went on this half a day tour and visited several handicraft villages, black buck spotting, witnesses local customs and ended with a lunch with a great local family. An outstanding experience. We also bought carpets from them and the prices were reasonable. We were never compelled or pushed to buy anything. Recommended if you are into local culture and shopping.

We had a wonderful day doing the safari. The tour was well organized from start to finish. Our guide picked us up from our hotel and we started our day with spotting beautiful blackbucks on the outskirts of Jodhpur. We were then taken to a place which sold beautiful block-printed bedcovers and bed sheets. We even got to see how block printing is actually done and it was fascinating to learn about it. There is so much chemistry involved :) Next, we had an adventurous time trying our hand at the potter's wheel. It really is magic how potters create and shape objects. Our last stop in the tour was the Bishnoi household where we got to see how beautiful Dhurries are woven. The weaves were mesmerizing. Had a warm and sumptuous meal with them which included some fantastic Kadhi. Our guide was very punctual and made for good company. All in all, a great safari and a must do for anyone in and around Jodhpur.

Excellent experience. We were lucky to get the owner Prajapat sir himself as the guide. He made sure we spotted many blackbucks in the Safari. He definitely knows the area.
We also did pottery class and showed the loom to make carpets. The lunch at his home was simple but delicious.
Would be happy to do this Safari again.

My wife and I were part of a tour group, . and this activity was chosen for us. INCREDIBLE people . One of the highlights of my 6 day trip to Rajasthan. Very authentic cultural experience. with local arts and crafts tour, desert safari, and a home cooked meal all included !! What I found very special though was their incredible kindness in helping me find my cellphone which I accidentally dropped in the middle of the desert !! Our group was in four jeeps before sunset, looking at the wildlife . When i discovered my ' loss' later , I was ready to give up on even beginning a search . All four of the brothers ( its a family business !) coordinated a search in the middle of the desert in near darkness, and the miracle is - they found it !! They were so sincere in getting us to catch a glimpse of blackbucks, wildboar , and nilgai. While we did not purchase the dhurries ( carpets ) on display, their village cooperative and their attitude towards the environment is admirable Must visit for anyone who comes to Jodhpur

Experience was good. Mr. Shambhu and family are great hosts and treat their guests with utmost care and respect. They took through an entire tour of the bishnoi village, block printing, pottery etc. Post the tour, they served delicious and authentic homely food.
All in all, a great experience and we would love to stay in their homestay, the next time we are in Jodhpur.
