When you are coming to India, then don't forget to experience the Camel Safari, as this experience will leave some unforgettable moments in your life. Thar - the Great India Desert, sprawls across the western extreme part of the state of Rajasthan in India, offering some very daunting sand zones of the world. Camel - ponderous, surly, smelly and generally unattractive are the main source of this safari on this sand zone.
Most camel safaris start from Jaisalmer, which is well connected by air, train and road to the rest of India. Rajasthan's capital, Jaipur, is also a convenient starting point for exploring the state, whether on camel or otherwise. Jaipur is a well-connected by air, as well as regular train and bus links to a number of cities through out India. All camel-safari towns in Rajasthan, such as Bikaner and Mandawa, are connected by road to Jaipur. Buses run between all the major towns of the state, and private cars or taxis can be hired to do the trip.
One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as Adventure
As the Camel Safaris are generally arranged in the winters, you will require woolens. You will also need to carry beds, sleeping bags, blankets. During the daytime, you may require sun hat, a pair of sun glasses, and suntan lotion as the sun is blistering at this part of the day. Carry a first aid kit along with you, as well as any other essentials you might need every day.
The price of camel safaris varies according to the standard of food and comfort provided. Rates start from around 850 rupees per person, per day, including meals. However, this can increase up to around 2,000 rupees for top of the range camping facilities and jeep transport for part of the journey to go further afield.
