Camel Safaris at the top of 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. Itineraries of 2 to 7 days can be arranged traversing approx. 40-50 kms a day on camel.

Besides one camel per pax on the safari, a camel cart accompanies on the tour to handle baggage and allow riders to take rest as and when required. Our tours include three meals a day, tea/coffee, two mineral water bottles per day, an escort and tents on sharing basis, kitchen tent, toilet tents with pit system, foam mattresses and entertainment by local artisans.
