Rajasthan invites you to feel the adventure of a Camel Safari, which takes
you through the golden sands of the vast. Thar desert. Like horse safaris,
camel safaris are also popular in Rajasthan. The camel, popularly known
as the ship of the desert, is not only common in the Thar desert, but also
the only means of transportation in remote areas.
Ride through sandy tracks, passing through remote villages. Pitch your tent at a new place each night. Spend the evenings next to the camp tire and dance to the folk music.
The safari is organised to take one through the golden sands of the vast Thar desert and untamed countryside, enabling one to experience the days gone by when time drifted at a leisurely pace. The rolling landscape of the sand & shrub covered area is breathtakingly beautiful and the range of flora and fauna surprisingly large for a desert area.
The camel breeders or Raika are the best guides. They know every pasture, waterhole and village of the region. One can ride or walk along leisurely with the safari and enjoy the deserts-cape. The camel-carts are fully equipped and tourists need not bother about comfort in the desert.
Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation arranges the camel safari on request from Delhi and Jaipur during Nagaur Fair and desert festival.
