Steppes Travel (www.steppestravel.co.uk) is known in wanderers’ circles for deeply unique, scrupulously planned incursions into the last real back-of-beyond wildernesses and cultures, from Papua New Guinea to Sudan. So the ultra-exclusive, sophisticated itinerary it’s created around the 2016 Jaipur Literature Festival, which will run from January 21-25 in and around Diggi Palace (the Thakur mansion-turned-heritage hotel that’s hosted it since its inception in 2006), comes as a pleasant – and very appealing – surprise. Guests will enjoy a dinner with festival co-founder William Dalrymple at the perennially charming Samode Haveli (pictured), private events at which to circulate with members of the literary world (Ian McEwan and Michael Cunningham will be in attendance, as well as political theorists, Indian-language writers and debut novelists), and entrée to homes, parties and concerts of all sorts (from £2,745 per person for a 10-day escorted tour, not including international flights.)
