OFF THE BEATEN TRACK – SILK ROUTE (CAMEL SAFARI)
Post 8

Lonely roads, scarce life, no vegetation; where are we? Amid deserts where the horizon meets, you and only you remain. A camp in the lap of nature: so barren yet so subtle. You have all the time in the world to spend on yourself. Precious time, which you yearned for…
A proper camel Safari in the Desert can only experience all these. The thought finding oneself between the sea of sand is itself mesmerizing. The hobbies of royalties of Rajasthan have come within the reach of the masses. Jeep safari is also worth taking in Jaisalmer if you are a fun loving and adventurous creature.
In non-touristic safari we are driving you away from Jaisalmer town into the heart of desert where you will see less number of tourists in comparison to touristic safari. It is far away from the busy roads, big villages and the crowd. You are going to see clean and nice big sand dunes. The desert is a harsh place to sustain life and thus most of fauna and flora live on the edge.
All the tours are flexible and can be tailored made according to you.
We also provide special packages offering a combination of staying in the hotel (with food) together with our OFF THE BEATEN TRACK – SILK ROUTE (CAMEL SAFARI) .
