Rajasthan Desert Safari is one of the most adventurous and enthralling of the Rajasthan Tours. The valiant state of Rajasthan displays enormously splendid hospitality with the rustic modesty of the locals. A ride in the golden shimmering Thar Desert gives you a glimpse of the traditions and lifestyles of the colorful culture of Rajasthan. Pertaining to your comfort and convenience, Desert Safari is divided in two types: Camel Safari, it gives you a chance to travel the kaleidoscopic shimmering landscape on the back of a camel and if you want the journey to be short and light, Jeep Safari is the appropriate option where you can rent a robust gypsy. The best time to travel through the desert is either morning or evening as all through the day the heat is scorching with the sun at its peak.
A Rajasthan desert Safari can be of a day or last till a week depending on your choice.
You can either go for a day long journey to a Rajasthan village or a week long expedition covering extensive distances in the indefatigable Thar. The major historical cities of Rajasthan that lie on the periphery of the Thar are: Bikaner, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Pushkar. These cities are the best amongst the tourist places of Rajasthan as they offer you amazingly serene explorations and an interesting sneak into the folk art and culture of the royal Rajasthan.
The rough dry experience of the Thar in the day and pleasantly cold nights are the irresistible features of the Desert Safari Tour. The transient sand dunes slither with the gushing passionate winds forming new panoramas. Travelling across the desert you will come across a great variety of flora and fauna. Though most part of the land is barren often you find shepherds with their cattle herds feeding them on the intermittent green patches. The solitary sea of the gleaming sand between you and the horizon that seems to be never ending is the pervasive habitat of approximately 25 species of lizards and snakes accompanied by some of the endangered species like the Great Indian Bustard, the Black Buck, the Chikara, Francolin and the Quail that thrive in the thinly populated grasslands. Among the migratory birds that are often seen in the hot desert are the Sand Grouse, Ducks and Geese.
The sight of the calm and composed villages gives you a lifetime experience with mud huts, straw roof houses, wheel fodder choppers, ingenuous farm houses, cattle herds, distinctive wildlife, fire stunts in the bustling bazaars, rural women clad in multicolored mirror work blouses and long skirts, their sleek bodies decked with ethnic silver jewellery carrying water pitchers on their heads. Rajasthan camel Safari Tour offers all the facilities that would accomplish your trip to be an extraordinary holiday. An English speaking guide is appointed for every group who would completely quench your inquisitive thirst of the historical monuments, palaces, gardens, temples, heritage sites and lakes which all have a heroic tale in association with the mighty battles fought on the royal Rajasthan. Rajasthan folk performers and camp fire can be arranged on demand for halts at night in the cool nights under the silver starlit sky. All through your journey you cannot resist the locals inviting you to savor the Rajasthani delicacies made with rare spices. The scent of mud that seldom smells of rain and the burning cow dung leaves indelible imprints on your mind.
