Through his ancestral lineage (the Maharajas of Jodhpur) Reggie Singh has always had a passion for wildlife and outdoor pursuits. Safaris and their various modes of transport whether camel, jeep, elephant or horse, allows adventurers to really explore Rajasthan’s deserts and jungles and to interact with local tribal people.
It has always been Reggie’s dream to create memorable safari experiences in the great Indian outdoors, and share these experiences with seasoned travellers in pursuit of a unique adventure. The Marwar Safari Experience is ‘one for the books’, a true-blue safari as it was done in the good old days – a safari to showcase the magnificence of the kingdom of Marwar.
Marwar – which means land of death (as nothing could be grown in this arid desert land), was tamed by Reggie Singh’s ancestors. Marwar was never a rich kingdom, however, it was rich in culture and famous for its hospitality. Reggie’s clan, the Rathores of Marwar, had a flair for doing things in style. Any dignitary coming to India was sure to come to their town of Jodhpur whether it was for polo, hunting or safaris. In fact, the word safari comes from their language, ‘safar karno’ which means ‘to travel’.
“It will be my pleasure to host you on this magnificent journey and give you the opportunity to see colonial and rural India through my eyes. Padharo maro desh (Welcome to my land)”. Reggie Singh
