Average time to visit
Rajasthan is known as the desert state. It is largely hot and dry throughout the year, making it a great destination to get away during cold winter months.
Summer in Rajasthan extends from April to June. It’s the hottest season so not ideal for travel, although early April is a good time to get great value for money if you don’t mind the heat. In western Rajasthan temperatures may soar, particularly in May and June, so we'd suggest avoiding Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert at this time.
The monsoon season usually runs from July to September. The temperature drops slightly, and humidity increases. During this period 90% of the rain Rajasthan occurs, although in reality Rajasthan never receives much rainfall. Lakes and rivers will be higher and there's more color to the landscape.
October to March is the best time to travel to Rajasthan. Expect warm and sunny weather, perfect for exploring and relaxing. Please note that hotels are at their busiest over the Christmas and New Year period. December and January can have very cool mornings and evening and we suggest taking some warm clothing. Whilst temperatures in the desert areas are always hot in the daytime, they become some of the coolest areas of the state once the sun goes down. It’s also normal to expect some fog in the major cities of northern Rajasthan in December and January.

A stunning and elegant tented property on the edge of the park. Huge tented bedrooms are beyond luxurious complete with king size beds and bath tubs. The service is perfect as youd expect from an Aman but my favorite thing was THE FIRE PLACE which serves as an informal outside lounge and dining area, covered in neutral cushions and pillows serving as the perfect spot for a sun downer.

What I loved about this camp was the design of the luxurious tents, they were so elegant and so large they could almost be considered marquees. Staying in this camp you get the feeling of the great outdoors without having to compromise on any luxuries - you can even have a bath in your tent after your game drives.
