The History of the Marwari at Rohet
Today Rohet Garh has emerged as great patrons of their own horse, the Marwari! The indigenous horse of the Thar desert! Endowed with sublime beauty and an honest ‘never say die’ spirit, it is a bold and fearless horse, magnificent in confirmation and loyal unto death. It was the brave Rajput warrior’s mighty charger, which was capable of tearing fearlessly into the enemy, rearing up on war elephants in order to let its master strike the foe seated upon it, or jumping off fort ramparts, and jumping rivers with a severed hind leg to save its master’s life by sacrificing its own! In the annals of Rajput history, these horses are as famous as their masters, and their names have been forever immortalized.
“Rohet Safari’s” premier product. Pioneered by us in 1989, this program still remains our main highlight. Showcasing the best of the land, it is a complete cultural experience, which encompasses all that this region has to offer. From the warm and hospitable people, to the various customs and ceremonies and the abundant wildlife, guests have the rare privilege of being welcomed into people’s homes and interacting with them. They get to experience and understand a way of life that takes them closer to their roots…
Royal Picnics are a great extension of our safaris. Be it in jeeps, on camel or on horse, the Royal Picnic is a grand recreation of a bygone era, where you are waited upon by liveried attendants; large mattresses with bolsters and soft cushions spread next to a soothing water body invite you to kick up your feet, and a choice of cool beverages await your discretion. The food is delicious, served hot on tables with crisp linen and a bottle of wine…and then you drift into sweet slumber watching the pied kingfisher dive for his lunch just yards away from you…!!
