The tribal life which one can not only witness but experience themselves, makes this stay a once in a lifetime experience. The Rabari tribe, meaning ‘outsider’, gets its name from their occupation of rearing and raising cattle, camels and goats. They are also known for their “Rabari Bharat ” (Embroidery ). One can easily distinguish the Rabari women from the locals with their long black head scarves, their distinctive brass ear rings and their magical symbol tattoos. Their jewelery is quite modest in comparison to other tribal women of the country. The Rabari men commonly appear in a white dress, golden ear rings with a big stick in their hand. Their head is covered with a ‘Pagadi’(Turban)
