Camel Safari is one of the unique ways to explore small villages in Jaisalmer. Camel Safaris atop 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 colorful and hospitable.

The THAR is a world of its own, an unrelieved ocean of sand, dotted with dunes and seraphic shrubs, with its own distinctive wildlife. Here among the sun and the sand you will meet some of the most colorful and courageous people on earth. They respond to the rigors of the life in the desert with the exuberance of music and songs; their vibrant attire, the upward twist of mustache almost seem to defy the elements

There is considerable scope for adventure in the magical sands of Rajasthan .The arid land offers ample opportunities for desert safaris, whether but the fast, dust-raising jeep and horse or slowly, on the swaying back of a camel.

The people of the desert have been using the camel from centuries; sometimes it is their only means of transport and no man can think of surviving in the Thar Desert without the hardy camel. A camel safari amidst the golden sand dunes of Jaisalmer gives you a real feel of golden landscape .Denizens of the desert, like the desert fox, chinkara (deer), blackbuck and the great Indian bustard can also be sighted. It will take you to those remote areas where there ample opportunity to gain the first hand experience of the rustic environ.
