Kutch Classic Rider Camp is a pioneer in providing horseback safaris in India in the beautiful region of Kutch.

This region is home to some stunning forts, ancient heritage sites, rich culture and incredible wildlife.

All our packages have been meticulously designed to take you off the beaten track through pristine riding terrain, visiting places which are yet to be discovered by hordes of mainstream tourists.

Your host will lead you through varied landscapes, from the famous salt desert to the vast open plains of the Banni grassland, all the way to the ocean. Along the way you will visit historical landmarks, wildlife hotspots and small hamlets making it the most wonderfully unique and incomparable riding experience.

A fleet of vehicles, including jeeps and other support vehicles equipped with daily requirements will accompany you on the safaris to make sure that have everything you need during your entire journey.

Non-riders are welcome to accompany riding guests at a reduced rate, travelling by jeep and enjoying the full heritage, wildlife and cultural program.

This was my first time traveling to Gujarat India. I'd read that it's like the wild west, a region of environmental extremes. These kinds of places have always attracted me provided it was safe and the accommodations comfortable. My stay at the Kutch Classic Riding Camp provided me with many incredible experiences. A friendly staff member lead me to my elegant tent which had everything thing I needed, even a fan. The camp has a stable of handsome Marwari horses, one more stunning than the other. It was hard to choose which one I wanted to ride. I got to cantor across the white desert, encountered wild camels, experienced the country side intimately like you can only do on horse back. I rode into small villages where I was greeted with curiosity and delight. I'm a photographer whose passion is to capture/document the culture and tribal traditions. The organization of the tour and the accommodations were excellent and the meals, tasty. I look forward to my next adventure with the Kutch Rider Camp.
