Camel Safari in Rajasthan

Camel Safari is one of the unique way to explore small villages in Rajasthan. Camel Safaris at the top of this ship of the desert is most exciting and soft adventure. Riding a camel is not easy as people consider. It is neither a great test for endurance. It is a great experience to explore The Thar - a vibrantly, living, desert, very colourful and hospitable.

Itineraries of 2 to 7 days can be arranged traversing approx. 40-50 kms a day on camel. These itineraries are planned in the region of Bikaner, Khimsar, Osian and Jaisalmer. Nights halts are usually given near the village to provide opportunities to mingle with the local village folks and to provide insight to the traditional way of their life and culture. Besides one camel per pax on the safari, a camel cart accompanies on the tour to handle baggage and allow riders to take rest as and when required.

Camel Safari Tips

Beside riding the camel there are certain other facts too that you should keep in mind while travelling the desert regions of the Thar. Have you booked a camel safari trip in the Thar with prior reservations, better check them before leaving for your desert safari trip. The weather in desert is extreme so do carry a good backup of plenty of portable water to avoid dehydration, sun screen, goggles, and a first aid kit. The clothes that you are going to wear should also provide your skin breathing space, because of the hot climate you are tend to sweat. Its better to wear cotton clothes and loose fitted ones and wear shoes, avoid exposing your skin as much as possible or you'll get a sun burn. Visitors are requested to dress modestly since the safari passes in close proximity of villages. A Sola-Topee, the local Rajasthani turban or some kind of head protection is essential too.


Major Regions Of Camel Safaris In India


Camel Safari In Thar Desert:

Camel safaris are organised with skill and imagination in the vast Thar Desert of Rajasthan. The duration of safari can be from 4 to 15 days, though the minimum time duration doesn't exceed the week limit. The Thar is a world of its own, an unending ocean of sand, dotted with dunes and patchly covered with xerophylic shrubs, with its own distinctive wildlife. While taking up a camel caravan you'll encounter the warmth of hospitable villagers and ruins of historic forts and palaces of Rajasthan. The best camel safaris can be done around Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Bikaner, in the very heart of the Thar. 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 the desert heartland would be the Shekhawati region, taking in such towns as Ramgarh, Nawalgarh, Dundlod, Mandawa and Churu. Short, one or two-day camel safari trips can also be organised and the safari routes can incorporate interesting variations as Jaisalmer 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.


Chambal Safari:

Chambal safaris are another attraction that are coming up in the safari circuit and is a fine instance of Eco-friendly tourism in rural India. It provides the chance to witness the rich heritage and wildlife legacy set against arid backdrop. The Chambal Safari is a must for visitors to Agra and revolves around two key activities, a river cruise conducted by the Pathanias, which takes you along the Chambal river for 30-kms and provides close encounters with Ghariyals and Crocodiles; and the camel safari, which takes you to the picturesque Atar Fort.
