About Camel Safari
Camel SafariYou would have enjoyed numerous safaris but camel safari is different from rest of others. Riding the 'Ship of the Desert' in golden sands of desert is an experience worth cherishing. When you plan a camel safari, you just have to get used to one thing - the balancing act and movement of the animal. Camels may look aloof, but they are the lifeline of deserts. Major mode of transportation in deserts depends up on camels only. If you leave for the adventure trip inside Thar desert, it's the one experience you won't be able to forget ever. The reason is obvious that beside extreme, savage and blurry of this desert lies the adventure of exploring sandy landscape and passage through remote villages. You also can relish camping on small pond sites, jive on the tunes of the musicians or experience spending the night under the stars. Camel Safari has been an age-old phenomenon even before when no other modern means of transport were developed. You can still enjoy the same desert experience in the Sam Sand Dunes in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. Special cultural performances are also organized by Rajasthan tourism department to entertain the tourists in the evening. Camps are specially set for the travelers, where traditional Rajasthani meals are served with warm hearted Rajasthani hospitality.
Major Regions of Camel Safaris in India
Camel Safari in Thar Desert
Vast stretches of Thar Desert are the best destination in India for camel safari. The duration of safari can vary from 4 to 15 days. Minimum time duration of the trip doesn't exceed the week limit. An endless ocean of sand - The Thar - is a world of its own. Dotted with dunes and patchily covered with xerophylic shrubs, Thar Desert has its own distinctive wildlife. You also may fall in love with the warmth of hospitable locals and exquisite monuments of Rajasthan while on tour.

Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Bikaner, in the very heart of the Thar, are the best locations for camel safaris. Around 11 days long Bikaner-Jaisalmer safari covers 25 to 30 km a day. The tour follows a route which is known to only camel riders. Shekhawati region in Rajasthan is another option for camel safari. The towns covered in this tour include Dundlod, Mandawa, Ramgarh, Nawalgarh and Churu. One or two-day camel safari trips can also be organized in short. These safari routes can incorporate interesting variations as Jaisalmer to the Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. Special trips of camel safari are also organized around Pushkar and Nagaur during winters (October to March). These two cities are also popular for organizing cattle fairs.

Camel Safari in Chambal
Camel SafariChambal has emerged as a favourite destination for camel safari in recent years. It is also recognized as a fine instance of eco-friendly tourism in rural India. Providing the chance to witness the rich heritage and wildlife legacy, Chambal is set against arid backdrop. Chambal Safari is often recommended as a worthy excursion to all the tourists visiting Agra. You can choose any one of the two key activities, a river cruise conducted by the Pathanias, taking you along Chambal River for 30 km and providing close encounters with Ghariyals and Crocodiles; and camel safari, taking you to picturesque Atar Fort.

Best Time for Camel Safari
As the deserts experience scorching heat during summers, you should plan the camel safari in winter, that is between October to March.
Tips for Camel Safari
You should keep certain things in your mind while traveling in the Thar desert. If you booked a camel safari trip in Thar desert in advance, better you check them even before leaving for the trip. The deserts are famous for extreme weather, so you should carry a sufficient backup of potable water, sun screen, goggles and a first aid kit.
Your clothes should provide breathing space to your skin, as you have to be in hot climate sweating all during the trip. 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. You should avoid wearing skimpy clothes to avoid the unwanted attention of villagers. Some kind of head protection, Sola-Topee (local Rajasthani turban) for example, is also advised.
