The experience starts in the barren landscape of Little Rann of Kutch.
The region is a vast, featureless plain encrusted with salt that is accessible only for a few months every year. We will go on a safari across the Little Rann and look for the endangered Asiatic Wild Ass that is not found anywhere else in the world. In the evening, relax by the pool at the resort and gear up for the drive the following day.

The unending flats and the deafening silence of Little Rann cannot be described. It can only be experienced. Don’t be surprised if you get disoriented in this seemingly infinite piece of land. Once we have driven past Little Rann, we will drive down towards Mandvi. A small shipping manufacturing town, Mandvi boasts of crystal blue waters, a palace and a private beach.
