Soak in the aura of the vast Thar desert with the scathing golden sand dunes in our camel safari in Jodhpur. This is an activity that you should definitely try for an ultimate Rajasthani experience. Most of the camel safaris begin from Jodhpur, a colourful town amidst the desert. It is truly a mesmerising sea of blue. It has several palaces, forts, and Havelis that ooze out that traditional Rajputana appeal. Although Jodhpur has a lot in store for every type of traveller, the camel safari has a different charm to it that should not be missed. Tourists usually book the safari for the evening to witness the beautiful sunset.
Hop onto a camel and enjoy the drifting sand dunes shining, from a little high up. You will be taken around to get a feel of the glory of the Thar desert. It does not just end at the short camel ride. There are several other activities included as well in the Jodhpur Camel Safari. You even have the option to go deep into the Rajasthani hinterland and get an insight into the lifestyles of the villagers and communities here. Samsara and Osian villages are the two most popular locations for such interactions. There is also the desert fauna like Black Bucks, Blue Bulls and foxes that you can spot during the safari. A visit to Sachiya Mata temple is also included in the camel safari in Jodhpur where the guide will tell you about the history of the temple.
There are various kinds of camel safaris available for every budget as well as the time limit. Be it a half-day safari in the evening, a full day safari, or an overnight safari under the starry skies- you can choose and book from any of these, according to your convenience and time constraints. Enjoy the mesmerizing sunset while roaming around in the barren wilderness while sitting on the “Ship of the Desert”.
There are also permanent campsites located in the Osian village that is located approx. a 2-hour drive away from Jodhpur. Osian village is a pretty ancient village located in the Thar desert and it has its own unique charm altogether. Tagged as the “Khajuraho of Rajasthan”, it is famous for its temples which were built in the 8th to 11th century. Here you can experience a royal camping experience amidst the golden sands, away from all the disturbances.
As you witness the setting sun and the darkening sky, you can feel the temperature dropping and the cool breeze blowing on your face. At night, the safari usually provides with traditional Rajasthani dinner. You can sit in the camp area and enjoy it along with folk dance and music performances by the local artists. Spend the lovely night sitting alongside the campfire and under the twinkling night sky with your loved ones. Such a camel safari surely will be a memorable experience for you.
