Get the warmth of the naked SKY over your head, count the scintilating stars. May be you are perturbed with interminent sounds of barking dogs or peacock screams piercing through balm pitch dark nights. It is an affectionately irritating experience of the night.
LAND VILLAGES AND TOWNS : "MARUSTHALI" as we call this desert country, literally means the region of death. But , on exploration of this area , it can be discovered that inspite of all adversities it is full of life, containing all elements of an independent ecosystem. The land here is distinctly of three type - Plains, huge sand hills (Some bare and others dotted over with vegetation ) and shifting Sand Dunes. It is not like SAHARA and has no OASIS. It has ample of DEEP WELLS, depth of water being at 400 ft. Rains are scarce here, but, a little rain can transform the sand dunes temporarily into green valleys , where "SIWAN" the tall desert grass sprouts out. In October and November "MATIRA" the desert melon is available in plenty and is renowned for its sweetness. The people here are mainly farmers engaged in pastoral activities and cattle rearing. The RAIKAS or REBARI tribes are here for centuries. They have their own heards of camels, sometimes numbering in many hundreds of camels. Other occupations are weaving, carpentry, black & gold smithery, pot making etc. The villages are small having few huts or some mud houses. Villagers need very little from the outside world, as they produce and manufacture for their own needs.
"DHANI" is a cluster of few huts situated on some sand dune separately. It is a kind of farm house and should'nt be confused for a village. For nature lovers, BIKANER offers wild life and vegetation, beautiful desert landscape, sun, sand and camping. There is a varied store of wild life in this area; Antelope, Fox, Jackal, Rabbit, Blue Bull, Desert Cat, Chameleon, Monitor Lizard, Mongoose, Hedgehog, Squirrel etc. Bird Life is exciting and abundant.
"PACHA AAYA" menaing "come again", the villagers would request you when you leave their village. You must reluctantly take your leave. Their hospitable gestures, affection and music will leave an indelible memory. A souvenir of reminiscences of "VINO DESERT SAFARI " indeed a discovery. When the safari is over, the memories of this outstanding experience will remain with you for many years!
