Rajasthan Desert Safari Tour
In the far west of Rajasthan lies the Thar desert. Set amidst endless rocks and sand is the golden city of Jaisalmer, once a stopover for the caravanserais, which travelled from China to the Middle East along the Silk Route. This golden citadel with it's many turrets is where your desert safari begins.
To experience the unique atmosphere, beauty and total silence of the desert, we offer you an unforgettable experience. There are possibilities galore; In a village just 45 minutes drive from Jaisalmer, we have our own desert camp, complete with everything you need for a truly unique experience.
Travel for an hour, an afternoon, a day, three days or more, with jeep and/or camel. We have our own camels and english speaking guides. A jeep is always at hand for those who wish to continue their safari on four wheels instead of four legs! Visit the Rajput villages far out in the desert.
Meet with their inhabitants who have never left the desert, many not ever having visited Jaisalmer itself. Their children will welcome you in their unique way with true desert hospitality, hoping you might have some sweets in your pocket! Picknick wherever you like, cook your dinner out in the wilds.Ask For Quote
Camel-Safari in Desert
Ride up into the dunes and make yourself comfortable in the sand to watch the sun set over the desert, drinking tea and listening to the unique sounds of the "langoza", a flute with one mouthpiece and two shafts.
An unforgettable evening awaits you when you return to our camp on camel, your route lit by starlight. Relax on comfortable Indian style beds named "charpais", maybe with a chilled glass of beer.
The camp is lit with oil lamps and in the winter months a bonfire will add to the atmosphere. While relaxing, dinner will be served, accompanied by music from the Manganiyar musicians.
Dancers will give a performance like you have never seen before. With the ever increasing rhythm of the drums, they pirouette faster and faster around the bonfire, finishing in a climax which has to be seen to be believed. These dancers are famous all over the region and are often requested to dance at Royal Weddings.
Stay in the camp, out in a tent or sleep in the dunes under the stars. Enjoy the romance and the mystery of such a night. Skies unlike any in the west, their brightness only accentuated by the total darkness of your surroundings.
If you are looking for more comfort, return to Jaisalmer for your overnight stay. We have accommodation to suit all tastes and all budgets - from a clean simple guesthouse to five star luxury.
We also offer unique programmes in and around Jaisalmer for sightseeing by camel, jeep or car, always with the services of our local staff to take the best possible care of you.
