What is a Camel safari?
A typical camel safari in Jaisalmer includes a transfer from Jaisalmer to a Camel point in the Thar desert. You then take a camel ride, typically for one to two hours and then you get to watch the beautiful sunset on the dunes. You’ll be heading for dinner at a camp or out in the desert, watch a dance show and sleep out in the desert on a cot watching the stars or camping in a tent. Although it is called ‘camping’, it is more like a luxury camping or glamping!. Our desert camp in Jaisalmer has all the amenities required to give you the best luxury camping experience.
Select the right season
It is very important to pick the right season to go on a camel safari in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. A camel safari in Jaisalmer sounds like fun and games until it’s April and your skin starts melting due to it being 40 degrees in the shade. Temperatures can go up to 52 degrees in Rajasthan during the summer, and so definitely do not want to pick the wrong season!
June to early September is monsoon season, and although Rajasthan doesn’t encounter constant floods of rain, you would not want to be caught in it when it falls.
The best time to visit the Thar desert in Rajasthan and take on a Camel safari in Jaisalmer would be anywhere from September to march, as this is India’s winter season. These months have pleasant temperatures and dreamy sunsets, which produce a sky full of colour!
Rajasthani food at a desert camp in Jaisalmer
Rajasthan is an arid desert state with a diverse range of wildlife and plants. Rajasthani cuisine is infused with the state’s history of royalty and warfare. Throughout history, the people of this region have created delectable feasts out of whatever was available to them. They favoured meals that could be stored for several days without needing to be heated. The scarcity of water and fresh vegetables had an impact on the food as a whole. Milk products (particularly ghee), lentils, gram flour, beans, barley, millet, corn, and meat are all staples in Rajasthani cuisine. Using milk, buttermilk, curd, and other dairy products to save water has become popular, and it is now favoured for its creamy, rich flavour and texture. Mutton, chicken and boar meat are among the meats prepared. The spices used in Rajasthani cuisine are the most essential aspect that distinguishes it.
A large Rajput thali is a terrific opportunity to sample Rajasthan’s cuisine all at once. A very tantalizing experience for your taste buds, as well as a stomach full of unique regional cuisine. The thali, which means “plate,” is an Indian style of serving numerous meals and flavours at once for a distinct and satisfying taste of a particular region’s cuisine. On one plate, you may find Dal Baati Churma, Sattu, various breads such as Phulkas, Bajra rotis, Pooris, Kachauris, parathas, Khoba roti, Missi roti, Pyaaz Kachori, Gatte ki sabzi, several types of dals, Panchmel ki sabzi/dal, and more.
Carry your supplies
The Thar desert is scorching hot during the daytime and very cold during the night. So make sure that you bring the right gear to protect yourself from the harsh conditions of the desert. Carry your suncream for the sun beating down on you, water to make sure you are hydrated, and warm clothes for the nights spent out in the desert. Also, don’t forget to take your camera to record all the great memory.
