  • These include steel wheels, a robust bull bar spanning front and rear wheel arches, side steps, and a sturdy stand facilitating easy access to the third-row seats.
Theatre-Style Third-Row Seating:
  • The Jimny Safari innovatively incorporates theatre-style third-row seating, offering unobstructed views positioned well above the second-row headrests.

Though lacking headrests, the third-row seats cater to optimal photography opportunities.

Concerns and Considerations:

Despite its commendable features, some concerns have been expressed, notably regarding the windscreen’s inability to drop down for photography—a feature present in the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy Safari. However, the overall transition to the Jimny signifies a significant step forward in embracing modernity while maintaining the essence of adventurous jungle safaris.


As the Maruti Suzuki Jimny takes center stage, it ushers in a new era for jungle safaris in Rajasthan. The Jimny promises safari operators and wildlife enthusiasts an unparalleled and authentic safari experience with a perfect fusion of comfort, ruggedness, and innovative design elements. Embracing an open-top allure and incorporating customized safari features, the Jimny is poised to navigate the wilderness with both style and capability, ensuring that the legacy of captivating jungle safaris continues to thrive. The strategic move by the government to update with current regulations and offer the best service to customers is evident in this transition, marking a significant chapter in the vibrant history of Rajasthan’s jungle safaris.
