Rajasthan Camel Safari
Camel Safari as a mode of adventure is very popular in Rajasthan. The deserts of Rajasthan are vibrant and its people warm and friendly. The safaris usually pass through quaint little desert villages and hamlets and embarking on a safari provides one with a lifetime's opportunity to explore the hidden charms of some of India's most remote villages. You will not find these villages in any tourist brochures, but they are worth every penny you spend.
Camel Safaris are not meant for the faint hearted though. You need to be physically fit and capable of absorbing the scorching sun and the soaring daytime temperatures, which hovers around the 40 to 45 degree Celsius. And during the night the temperature again plummets to near zero degrees.
Camel Safaris in Rajasthan transports you away from the humdrum of city life to a whole new world of desolate landscape with not a soul to be seen. A typical Camel Safari in Rajasthan has specialist navigators who have years of experience under their belt and are very knowledgeable too. They not only guide you throughout your desert safari but also provide you with fascinating insight into the desert ecology, the culture and colorful lifestyle of the nomadic desert tribal dwellers.
You travel in daytime, covering 40-45 kms every day and camp in the villages and small desert hamlets during the night. The camps have tented accommodation which are spacious. The food is hygienic which is prepared by an expert chef. Bonfires are lit up after dusk and enchanting folk musicians perform mesmerizing folk music and dance portraying the legends and myths of the deserts of Rajasthan.
