Adventure trip with dad on this Father’s Day

Giving gifts is a traditional way of celebrating Father’s Day, this year why not give a twist and treat your dad by doing something adventurous and thrilling. COVID-19 pandemic led to a worldwide lockdown as restrictions forced people to stay indoors, now since everything is open, it would be nice to go out and indulge in some adventure sports activities, and it is time to set yourself free! City first brings for you a few activities that will help beat the pandemic blues and give an adrenaline pumping.

Adventure sports

When it comes to adventure sports, Pushkar in Rajasthan is a hub of such activities, from ziplining, quad-biking, zorbing, rock climbing, rappelling, paintball, and many more, these are adventure sports available for those who want that adrenaline rush. To know more about different activities that one can try, we spoke to Udaibhan Singh, who owns an adventure park in Pushkar and Udaipur named Xcapade Adventures, he says, “What can be a better gift on Father’s Day than enjoying a few adventure games with him, here we have Zipline, Quad-Biking, Zorbing, Rock Climbing, Rappelling, Paintball and many more interesting games.”

Giving an insight into the kind of activities above mentioned are, he shared, “While zorbing is rolling down on a gently inclined path in cushioned giant plastic ball tied securely at one end, PaintBall is a playful war between friends, family, and colleagues. Another interesting fun-filled game is Quad- Biking, here one can enjoy Polaris 90cc and 200cc.” He also suggested Ziplining, this activity gives a picturesque overhead view of the magnificent dune location in Pushkar. Along with the adrenaline rush, this is a great experience that has to be tried.

Ecological experience

A day outing at Nahargarh Biological Park, which is well known for its wide variety of flora and fauna, would be a good option! With over 285 species of birds, this biological park is spread across an area of 720 hectares. The center of attraction at the Nahargarh Zoological Park are animals such as Asiatic lions, Bengal tigers, panthers, hyenas, wolves, deer, crocodiles, sloth bear, Himalayan black bear, and wild boar, among the others. Besides, when you visit this place, make sure you go to Ram Sagar, heaven for birth watchers.

Wildlife & Safaris


One of the most exclusive and motivating experiences is being personal with Elephants. There is an elephant farm in Jaipur that gives an unique eco-friendly experience with elephants. To know more about the kind of activities being offered, we spoke to Ankit Pareek, owner of Elefanjoy Elephant Sanctuary. He shared that at the farm, one can feed the elephant, paint on an elephant, walk with the elephant, and enjoy an elephant shower.

Elaborating the activities, Pareek shared, “A way to a human heart is through the stomach. Animals are not an exception to this. Feeding the Elephant is the easiest way to gain their friendship and trust in you so we start with feeding the elephant to develop friendship, this follows ‘Painting on elephants’, natural organic paints used to paint the thick elephant skin. Another activity is ‘Walk with the Elephant’, as we no longer promote Elephant rides, Elephant walk is the best experience you can ever have to stop the exploitation and to raise awareness towards Elephant welfare. And finally, the everlasting experience is ‘Elephant Shower’; an interesting way to be close to Elephants is elephant washing, scrubbing, and showering. This can be done late in the afternoon.”
