Capparis decidua or ‘Keir’ in the local language is a no-frills, tough shrub - as it must be, in order to survive the harsh conditions of the Thar Desert. 'Keir' grows wild and unattended throughout India’s arid northwest regions and holds exceptional importance in Rajasthan, where this little berry is a staple within the rural economies. A prime reason for the fruit’s significance is the tree’s ability to survive in regions where no other vegetation can: Indeed, its only growing requirements are low rainfall, shallow soils, and dry, hot temperatures. The only challenge finding fresh berries is, getting to the fruits before the camels, goats and birds devour them! 'Keir' is seldom eaten out of hand on account of its bitter, acrid taste. One bite inundates the mouth with a hot, peppery sensation. ‘Keir-Sangri’ is one of the most popular dishes incorporating the fruit. This is achieved by softening the berries by soaking and then boiling the fruit, followed by sautéing them with ‘sangri’, a desert bean, in oils and spices. One of the most authentic dishes of Rajasthan, almost every menu in the state offers a dish featuring it. A must try, we assure you, the ‘Keir-Sangri’ tastes better than it looks!

Tucked away in an idyllic corner of the sprawling city of Jaipur, a day spent with the elephants is the rarest of rare indulgences in a setting only half an hour from the treasures of the fabled Pink City of Jaipur. Conducted in the countryside, you will be sent on a picturesque track following a local tribal guide passing by village hutments, fields, a medival fortress and finally arrive at the camp situated in the middle of the forest. The elephant safari last between 45-60 minutes and comes to an end back at the camp itself. At the foothills of the Aravali Range, the camp is surrounded by the wilderness of a reserved forest with no urban civilization in the vicinity, bordering a beautiful lake. It is an ideal natural environment for the resident elephants. A wonderful day of leisure in the comfort of an exclusive and personalized environment with a beautiful setting.

Often touted as the oldest smoothie in the world, it flocks the streets and eateries not just in Northern India, but across the subcontinent during the scorching summers. While the sweet 'lassi' garners more attention, it is often simply flavored with sugar, which balances the natural sourness of the yogurt, but can also be jazzed up with saffron or pureed fruit. Falling into that happy category of desserts masquerading as drinks, which means it is quite acceptable to put one away while you’re waiting for your food to arrive, then demolish another one immediately afterwards, even as you wave away suggestions of pudding. Top up your 'lassi' with some mango, now if this does not tell of Indian summer nothing else will.

Ever painted an elephant? 
Tucked away in an idyllic corner of the sprawling city of Jaipur, a day spent with the elephants is the rarest of rare indulgences. Spend a relaxed afternoon at a private estate in a rustic yet luxurious atmosphere. Upon arrival watch the elephants coming in and enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings. You are then allowed to make your first contact with the elephants by the way of feeding them bananas. Then you will be escorted to a small pond where you will be able to bathe your own elephant with the help of camp staff. Next, get a chance to paint the Elephant with natural colors and spend as much time with the elephants, an experience rare in itself! Please note: The colors used are gentle to the elephant’s skin.

Butter milk has been often touted as the oldest smoothie in the world, it flocks the streets and eateries not just in Northern India, but across the subcontinent during the scorching summers. While the sweet 'lassi' garners more attention, the salty variant has its own fan following. Shake up yogurt and water along with a pinch of salt, fresh or dried mint leaves, maybe even spices like cumin seeds and it’s a winner! This cooling yogurt drink has a number of things to recommend it. First, it is utterly delicious, as anyone who has thrown caution and official advice about only drinking sealed bottles of water to the wind will testify – creamy and sweet-sour, sometimes subtly spiced but never less than utterly refreshing!

Much of the north-western portion of Rajasthan is covered by the inhospitable and thinly-populated Thar Desert. High winds pick up loose sand and move it at high speeds, severely reducing visibility. Wind-driven sandstorms rising in the Thar are a common feature of the harsh weather in May - June.
