Camel Safari in Thar Desert

Camel Safari in Thar Desert, RajasthanThe Thar desert is a land of vast stretches of golden sands that have remained unchanged since centuries. The best way to experience the magnificence of the desert is to become a part of its very landscape, a priveledge you can enjoy on a Camel Safari. In the medieval ages Camel caravans traversed these routes as they were a part of the spice trail that brought exotic goods from the markets of Arabia, Africa, the Middle East to India. You can undertake the same journey that these merchants of times past undertook and experience the feeling of having visited another era. Travel to the interiors of the desert and discover charming little villages and the hospitality of the people in this inhospitable terrain. See ruins of forts and palaces and unearth the legends that surround them. Ride up into the dunes to watch the sun set over the desert, listening to the soothing music of 'langoza'- a flute with one mouthpiece and two shafts. Camp under the star lit night sky. Take a journey into this land of mystical mirages and be enrichened by an experience like none other.

Tailormade Your Tour

Safaries - Custom Made
The safaries come in many shapes, sizes and budgets. You can hop on to a Camel for an hour around sunset and then get back to your comfortable hotel bed. Or else find a fancy tent to stay in for the night. At the other end of the scale, you can ride for days with only a Camel driver for company and the most bacis provisions. Reasonably hardy travellers usually choose a 2-day safari with one night spent under the immense canopy of the desert sky. The more adventurous traveler can go for a longer safari, one that would take you all around the Thar. Most desert safaris are centred around the princley kingdoms of Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Bikaner, some of the most historic and culturally rich cities of the province. A typical safari will take you to the architectural ruins of Lodurva that are close to Jaisalmer, the oasis at Anasagar, the sand dunes of the Samm and the water source of Moolsagar.

The Bikaner-Jaisalmer safari is about 11 days long, covering 25 to 30-kms a day, along a route known to none but the camel riders. An option to traverse the desert heartland would be to travel to the Shekhawati region, taking in such towns as Ramgarh, Nawalgarh, Dundlod, Mandawa and Churu. On the shorter, one or two-day camel safari trips, the journey could incorporate interesting variations, such as riding from Jaisalmer in Rajasthan to the Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. Special camel safaris are also organised round Pushkar and Nagaur in the winter season of October to March, when these two cities have their popular cattle fairs.
The Bikaner - Jaisalmer Camel Safari
The days are for navigating through the desert and taking in its incredible landscape, an interesting lesson in geography. Explore the vast, unending glittering sand dunes, try and spot a Chinkara Antelope, and perhaps even the Great Indian Bustard, native to this region. Disembark and explore the forts, palaces, mansions and citadels that dot this landscape. After all that riding the nights are for unwinding, you could choose a package that allows you buffet meals and cultural shows. The shows include enchanting presentations of folk dance and music. The Manganiyar musicians play melodious tunes and the dancers twirl in rythmic unison.

Adventure Sport
If you are a rough and ready adventurer , looking to push your limits and challenge your strength then look no further. The Camel safari comes in many packages, choose one that allows you to experience the rigours of the desert, ride for days together, discover charming oasis' and weather desert storms, sleep under the night sky, cook your food on a bonfire and enjoy this thrilling real life camping experience. The authentic Camel safari is gaining an incredible fan following, tourists from around the world, usually in groups undertake this journey and have the time of their lives.

Weather Watch
Summers in the desert are too harsh so the ideal time to go for a Desert Safari during the winter months (October and March), in winter the weather is comfortably warm and the breeze pleasantly perfect for such a journey.

Tailormade Your Tour

Some Essentials
Carry a large rimmed sun hat, cotton caps, umbrellas, scarves and balaclava, mineral water, torch sunscreen creams, moisturizers and lip salve and knife when going on a long trip. Wear loose and light cotton clothing and hardy shoes to protect your feet. Drink plenty of water to avoid the risk of dehydration.
