Camel Safari in India
About the only thing you will have to get used to, when you plan a
camel safari, is the the balancing act and getting use to the
movement of the camel. The camels may look aloof, but they are known
as the lifeline for the desert people, whose major mode of
transportation depends on camels only, also known as the "Ship
of the desert".
adventure trip inside the Thar desert is the one that you won't be
able to forget your whole life. Reason being that beside the blurry,
savage and extreme image of this desert lies the adventure of
exploring the sandy landscape and passage through remote villages.
How about camping on small pond sites, experience spending the night
under the stars and jive on the tunes of the musicians.
Camel Safari has been a experience that is happening since the
ancient times, when no other modern means of communications were
developed by man and animals were the sole transport used for

get a sun burn. Visitors are requested to dress modestly since the
safari passes in close proximity of villages. A Sola-Topee, the
local Rajasthani turban or some kind of head protection is essential
