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. In fact it's like riding a gentle roller coaster once you are atop the camel. And then when you have the time to concentrate on the environs around you besides the rumblings in the abdominal region, then you feel you are the king of the world or the queen as the case may be. 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 fire and dance to the folk music. Morni.. baaga..maan..hmmmm...

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 of yore when time drifted at a leisurely pace. The rolling landscape of the sand and shrub covered area is breathtakingly beautiful and the range of flora and fauna surprisingly large for desert area.

The camel breeders of Raika are the best guides. They know every pasture, waterhole and village of the region. It's amazing when one thinks of the miles of desert and all looking the same. One can ride or walk along leisurely with the safari and the enjoy the desertscape. 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. Check with the various RTDC offices dotting Rajasthan. But don't forget once you get to Rajasthan do come back for more. There is the famous Pushkar Mela, the Gangaur festival, the Dilwara temples of Mt.Abu, the lake palace of Udaipur, the Bharatpur sanctuary and much much more.
