Rajasthan Elephant Safari
The most regal way of seeing Rajasthan is on an elephant safari, since
nothing can even compare with the majesty of the pachyderm - no wonder
the rulers used elephants for their journeys.
Equipped with a howdah, a large seat on which they would sit, complete
with soft silk cushions, and with a ceremonial umbrella over their
heads, modern day safaris may pale in comparison, but are no less
regal on that account.
The elephant treads slowly and steadily, and a safari would be ideal
in and around principal towns, especially in the vicinity of wildlife
sanctuaries where the same elephants can do double-duty for viewing
Since an elephant safari is an elaborate affair, and requires many
attendants for the beast as well, such camps too tend to be more lavish,
and so these are best for incentive groups who can be promised an
experience, the like of which they are unlikely to ever have elsewhere.
