A ship, except that this time the ship is an animal, Camel popularly known
as the ship of the desert. Camel Safari's are such animal rides that need
both skill and imagination to explore the mirages of desert.
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".
The 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 Facts
Beside riding the camel there are certain other facts too that you should keep in mind while travelling the desert regions of the Thar. Have you booked a camel safari trip in the Thar with prior reservations, better check them before leaving for your desert safari trip. The weather in desert is extreme so do carry a good backup of plenty of portable water to avoid dehydration, sun screen, goggles, and a first aid kit.

Its better to wear cotton clothes and loose fitted ones and wear shoes, avoid exposing your skin as much as possible or you'll 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 too.
