Get the perfect glimpse of the colorful rural life of Rajasthan by visiting this little village of Guda Bishnoi. Located at a distance of around 25 kilometers, this picturesque town is marked with Khejri trees and deer.

The Bishnoi community inhabits the village. The villagers are staunch worshippers of nature in all its forms, especially the sanctity of plant and animal life.

Guda Bishnoi, Jodhpur Reviews
If you want to experience the village like atmosphere away from the the noise of the city, this is the place. Quite, pleasant, closer to the nature. The staff is limited but very friendly. Hospitality is nice. Rooms are well maintained. Food was tasty. They served veg but it gave feeling of proper Rajasthani home made food. You can just sit here at night and stay there just sitting and talking. This the place I'd like to visit again in future.
At the end of Jeep Safari had a brief stopover to enjoy a freshly cooked authentic Rajasthani vegetarian lunch in a pure natural surrounding. Loved it.
Nice stopover when are you driving from Udaipur to Jaisalmer or vice versa. First hand experience of rural ramble with ethnic home made Rajasthani meals.
Awesome place. I like very much. Traditional food, atmosphere.
Please keep the legacy alive in Bishnoi! It's hard but definitely worth it! It is a village style "resort" in the middle of the Bishnoi community area. We stayed here for the 3D2N package which includes all meals, ac room (yes, they have air con), tours. And we were surrounded by tranquility (to be honest, a little bit too quiet) and some of the kindest people we ever seen in India. Amit and his brother Manoj made sure we would have a good time. They and the staff are all so warm and welcoming that you cannot blame them for their effort to make you feel as a valuable guest even though sometimes the hospitality is a little bit too much to leave some personal space for the guests. But maybe it was because we were the 2 of the only 3 guests staying there. It is so sad to see such a beautiful place is almost empty during those 3 days we stayed, and it was weekend. This place is opened for more than 10 years, before it was the father, now the sons run the place. The whole selling point is the Bishnoi culture, but I guess as the modernization goes, less and less village people want to keep their old ways of living. The safari is amazing, we saw more than 30 blackbucks in the wetland and a lot other animals and thousands of migratory herons from Siberia, it was just amazing. The camel ride is okay, we didn't want the camel to suffer, so we step down the camel cart to walk with the camel. The village tour is mediocre, but I like the part they let us both try the traditional clothes of Rajathani people. The blockprinting shop and pottery shop is...okay, you know the deal, but you are not forced to buy anything. At night it is really sad to see an old Rajasthani music artist to perform to only 1 guest in front of the dimmiing campfire. I guess since they market on the Bishnoi culture, but the local culture is not thriving (maybe before it was), I guess they could make more efforts on the culture part, at least make their own resort more cultural, make guests have more immersive experiences, make more local people joining in the community. Maybe another reason the tourists number decline is because in Jodhpur city there are more and more Bishnoi day tour by tour agencies? I don't know, maybe it was only because there were no other guests that we get this experience? But I like this place, the people and the concept, it makes me hurt to see it going down.
