About Overlander India - Private Day Tours
Overlander India gives you an opportunity to experience an authentic rural adventure. We take you off-road, deep into the wilderness to visit and interact with local rural communities and tribes and see the abundant wildlife and bird life the region has to offer. The experience is not complete without a rural picnic lunch where you get a chance to sample local cuisine. A village visit completes your outing with an age old Rajasthani ceremony. You can also visit the Overlander Campsite, set in the midst of total wilderness for an "Africa" like experience.

As part of a group of 10 friends, we were treated to a wonderful day out by Uday and his team. The jeeps were comfortable. The wildlife viewing and the commentary were great. Visits to desert villages were charming and informative. The home-cooked lunch was delicious. The best part of the tour was meeting Uday, a man of great charm, impressive knowledge of the local environment and people and exceptional good humour. We thoroughly recommend the experience.

This was part of our private tour of India organised by Total Holiday Options and we were tempted to give it a miss because of the cringy description in our schedule which gave us the impression we'd have one of those slightly embarrassing 'authentic' interactions with village people before being pressured to buy stuff. In fact the focus was almost entirely on birds, antelope and other wildlife interspersed with some very relaxed village visits and some information about their way of life. We were very impressed with Uday, the charming, humorous and informative owner of the business, who turned on an excellent lunch as well as being a font of information about everything we saw. Warning - If you are not interested in wildlife, only want to buy things, want air conditioning, are afraid of a bit of dust - don't book this trip as you'll just make yourself miserable.

Altogether, this has been one of the highlights of our trip to India. We just returned from a half-day 4x4 trip into the desert near Jodhpur with Overlanders India. Uday, the owner of the company, was our informative and enjoyable guide. Not only did we see various desert animals and birds, but we also learned a lot about the traditional techniques that have allowed people to live sustainably for countless generations in harmony with their desert environment—from ingenious methods of grain storage to homemade natural fertilizer/pesticide combinations. Our visits to families of two different communities—Bishnoi and Pittal—were fantastic. We were warmly welcomed and Uday graciously answered our many questions about religious & family traditions, animal husbandry & agricultural techniques, building methods, and the effects of modernization on this way of life. We watched butter being churned and millet bread being made in an outdoor kitchen, and my husband tried his hand with a slingshot. All this was followed by a delicious vegetarian lunch that Uday’s colleague set up in the shade. Do yourself a real favor and don’t miss this special experience.
