Best Desert Safari Tours in Jodhpur

Located in the Thar Desert, Jodhpur is a jumble of different shades of blue cubes and is truly a sight to behold. The contrasting colours amidst the Thar desert look uniquely striking. With the muscular Mehrangarh fort which towers over the city, is a striking spectacle to gawk at. Below it are the streets filled with bazaars and shops selling anything and everything. Jodhpur has a lot of little surprises for you to explore. Along with exploring this city, there is an experience which cannot be missed- the Jodhpur desert safari. 

Going into the desert and experiencing the vastness of the Thar desert is something you will cherish for your lifetime. Enter the Thar with style by sitting on the “Ship of the Desert” or if you are not in the mood for some more luxury, you can go on a desert jeep as well. Each of these two means will give you an entirely different experience of the desert. 

In this desert safari in Jodhpur, walk through the dunes and enjoy the stunning sunset. Along with the golden views and the shifting sand dunes, you will be able to indulge in various activities as well. Spot some desert wildlife like the Chinkaras, foxes, Indian Gazelles, and many more. For an adventurous twist in this calm safari, ride a quad bike or go for dune bashing through the glistening desert. Experience a stay in the lavish tents, just like the maharajas of the bygone era.

Relish the authentic Rajasthani dishes served within the camp area and enjoy the local artists’ folk song and dance performances in their vibrant and colourful attires. You can even sit around the bonfire in the middle of the desert, chit-chat with your folks and enjoy the view of the sky filled with twinkling stars. The next day, you can even witness the first rays of the sun making the sand look like a layer of gold, early in the morning. Not to worry, as you need not stay for the whole night in the desert if you don’t want to or have time constraints. 

There are various kinds of desert safari in Jodhpur that are curated for your convenience. Some of them last for half a day till sunset, some of them last for a whole night or two and a few of them even last for a week or so for a full-fledged experience of the Thar desert. You can opt for any of these enchanting safaris according to your convenience, budget, as well as timing. 

The safari is usually carried out in the middle of nowhere, far away from the urban noise, in the captivating quietude of the Thar Desert. There are permanent campsites built here that offer impeccable Rajasthani hospitality with a luxurious touch. You can even roam around these campsites and witness as well as interact with the communities living in the neighbouring areas of the desert. Such experiences make the desert safari in Jodhpur a unique holiday for every traveller.
