The tour included an evening elephant ride at Dera Amer. Dera Amer is a few miles outside Jaipur, and it was an adventure in itself being driven up the dirt track to the camp in the coach . . . and knowing that we had to make the same trip back, after dark! However, our very capable coach driver took it in his stride, and the whole evening was a lot of fun.

The evening finished with a dinner and then fireworks (which fortunately didn't lead to an elephant stampede!)
