Rann Riders The Resort

Rann Riders eco-friendly luxary safari resort is situated near the village of Dasada, a few minutes drive from the entrance of the Little Rann of Kutch Wild Ass Sanctuary.It is also an ideal stopover for those travelling from Rajasthan into Gujarat or from Ahmedabad to the colourful district of Kutch.

Rann Riders is family-owned and run. The owners descend from Baktiar-ud-din who was given the 24 sq mile jagir (Indian equivalent of a dukedom) of Dasada and its surrounding villages in return for military services provided to the Sultan of Gujarat in the 15th century. He was given the title of Malik Bakhan-1 and his successors continue to use Malik as their title and now as their last name. The Maliks participated in the siege of many forts and the battles of Kuva and Rankhundal in the 1400s and 1500s.
