Camel Safari Tour Rajasthan
Jaisalmer invites you to feel the adventure of a Camel Safari
Tour, which takes you through the golden sands of the vast Thar
desert. 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 campfire 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 Drovers know every
pasture, waterhole and village of the region. One can ride or
walk along leisurely with the safari and enjoy the desertscape.
The camel-carts are fully equipped and tourists need not bother
about comfort in the desert.
The most interesting means of exploring the desert around
Jaisalmer is on a camel safari. October to February is the best
time for a safari. The realistic minimum price for a basic safari
is Rs. 150 to Rs. 200 per person per day. For this you can expect
a breakfast of porridge, tea and toast, and lunch and dinner of
rice, dhal and chapaties –pretty unexciting stuff.
Usual circuit takes in such places as Amar Sagar, Lodruva, Mool
Sagar, Bada Bagh and Sam, as well as various abandoned villages
along the way. The reins are fastened to the camel’s nose
peg, so the animals are easily steered. At resting points, the
camels are completely unsaddled and hobbled.
It’s great way to see the desert, which is surprisingly
well populated and sprinkled with ruins. You constantly come
across tiny fields of millet, girls picking berries or boys
herding flocks of sheep or goats. The latter are always fitted
with tinkling neck bells and, in the desert silence, it’s
music to the ears. Camping out at night in the Sam sand dunes,
huddling around a tiny fire beneath the stars and listening to
the camel drivers yarns can be quite romantic.
