Jeep Safaris Jeep safaris are the perfect way of discovering some of India's less accessible places, for the Jeep is a sturdy and hardy vehicle that can travel with ease on rough,rugged and rocky terrains. Also, due to its varied and unique topography, India offers some unique destinations that are best reached and seen in jeeps only. One could go on a Jeep safari across the Thar Desert in the colourful state of India, Rajasthan , or even on a cross Himalayan jeep safari, which would see you plying the world famous route of Manali in Himachal Pradesh to Leh in the state of Jammu Kashmir.

Travelling everyday for a few hours through beautiful and rugged terrains enjoying the scenery and camping every day at a new place has a charm of its own. Make sure you utilise the services of an experienced organisation and resourceful manpower that has thorough knowledge of the area, for a lifetime of an experience. Also, a good driver is a must and so is a good team taking care of day-to-day arrangements. Some of the areas require inner line permits for foreign tourists, thus advance planning is vital for jeep safari programs.

Important Tips Fundamental facts Bikaner Mandawa camel safaris Rajasthan, India's westernmost state is the very essence of exotic India. You can see Rajasthan on a jeep safari. Or, if you've a penchant for the high life, aboard the "Palace on Wheels", the luxury train. But to really get a hands-on feel of the desert state, nothing comes close to a Camel safari. Climb up on one of these seemingly ungainly and unattractive beasts, hang on tight, and let the good times roll, for the Ship of the Desert walks in a way which would certainly remind any experienced sailor of a rolling, pitching deck in turbulent sea!

When to go - Winters are the best time for a camel safari. Rajasthan's summers are almost unbearably hot and dry, so going on a camel safari during this time is virtually impossible. But, November to March, when days are cool (and nights cold, Rajasthan being a desert state!) is when most camel safaris are organized and enjoyed. What to bring - Woollens are a necessary part of your packing. Desert nights can get very cold, so it's essential to take along warm sweaters and jackets. Although mattresses are usually provided by whoever's organising the camel safari, you'll need to carry your own bedding - a warm sleeping bag is recommended. During the daytime, the sun can be blistering hot, so make sure you get your hat, a pair of sunglasses and lots of sunscreen lotion. Carry a first aid kit along with you, as well as any other essentials you might need - out there in the desert, trying to find a shop can be a big problem. It's a good idea to carry along a few extra blankets to cover the wooden saddle, which you'll probably be sitting on. Blankets are excellent padding, and can protect you from a sore bottom after a hard day's riding. Getting there - Most camel safaris start from Jaisalmer, the western part of Rajasthan and famous for its san dunes, which is connected by air, train and road to the rest of India. Rajasthan's capital, Jaipur, the Pink City, is also a convenient base for exploring the state, whether on camel or otherwise. Jaipur has a well-connected airport, as well as regular train and bus links to a number of cities across India. All camel-safari towns in Rajasthan, such as Bikaner and Mandawa, are well connected by road to Jaipur. Buses run between all the major towns of the state, and private cars or taxis can also be hired to do the trip.

Important Tips Drink plenty of water, at least 2 to 4 litres a day, to prevent dehydration and keep yourself well covered, to prevent sunburn. Wear a sunhat and sun glasses and put on the suntan lotion liberally if you don't want your skin to start peeling. Use a good sunscreen with high SPF. Rajasthan, although it's fast getting as commercialized as any other part of India, still is pretty unspoilt place especially as far as the desert is concerned. May we request you to please keep it that way; don't leave a trail of junk behind you or harm the ecology and culture of this beautiful region. Fundamental facts A large number of travel agents and tour operators in Rajasthan organise camel safaris for the tourists. Most of these are in the vicinity of Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Ossian and Khimsar, and stretch from anywhere between 2 to 7 days, with longer ones of up to a month. Shorter and daylong camel safaris, which just about give you a glimpse of the desert, are also organised. The majority of camel safaris start from the desert fort town of Jaisalmer. In most cases, one camel is provided per person, and a camel cart accompanies the entourage, laden with food, utensils and other essenmtial supplies; it's also an option for anyone who gets sick of sitting on a lurching camel. Tents, food, mineral water, mattresses and an escort, are invariably provided, and most operators will also make sure you get a full quota of local entertainment in the evenings. For longer camel safaris, which cover a few days, camps are usually set up at night in the vicinity of villages. Among the more popular circuits for camel safaris are: Jaisalmer Bikaner Mandawa 1.Jaisalmer-Badabagh- Baisakhai- Ramkunda- Roopsi- Ludharva- Chatrayil- Salkha- Beri of Kanoi- MasooradiJeseiri- Dedha- Deegasar- Kuldhara- Moolsagar- Amarsagar- Jaisalmer This route is really one of the longest camel safaris in the state; a number of shorter versions of this camel safari route are available, if you don't have the time or the inclination to go on the whole safari route. 2. Jaisalmer- Moolsagar- Kuldhara- Masooradi- Padiyari- Moondardi- Jaisalmer - this a shorter version of the first camel safari and starts from Jaisalmer, and passes through Moolsagar, Kuldhara and Masooradi, before proceeding to Padiyari and then to the hamlet of Moondardi. From Moondardi, the safari heads back to Jaisalmer. A short trip, but thoroughly enjoyable, especially for someone who doesn't have the time to spare for a longer expedition. 1.Bikaner- Naukh- Kanasar- Baru- Chayan- Sataya- Tadana- Mohangarh- Dungri-Jaisalmer: This route starts at Bikaner, where you can see the magnificent old Junagarh fort and the lovely Lalgarh Palace, before you get on to your camel and set off. The camel safari works its way southwards, passing through the hamlets of Naukh, Kansar, Baru, Chayan, Sataya and Tadana to Mohangarh. Mohangarh, although a small town, is dominated by an imposing sandstone fortress, which deserves a visit. From the town, the trail continues to Dungri and then onto Jaisalmer, where it ends. 2.Bikaner- Charkhada- Teliyan ki Dhani- Kanasar- Baru Bhala- Bungri- Telansar- Chaku- Bharaiya- JamboJaisalmer Another of the Bikaner-Jaisalmer camel safaris, but one that follows a different route. This one starts at Bikaner, and instead of heading directly south to Jaisalmer, makes a detour eastward into the neighbouring district of Jodhpur. Passing through the villages of Charkhada, Teliyan ki Dhani, Kanasar, Baru Bhala, Telansar, Chaku and Bharaiya along the way, the camel safari reaches the hamlet of Jambo, in Jodhpur district. From Jambo, it turns westward and goes to Jaisalmer, where it ends. Mandawa-Dhakas-Khotia-Mandawa: This camel safari is one of the shortest offered and though it's not full of exotica, still it allows you a brief but enlightening glimpse of life in one of India's harshest but loveliest terrains. These are just a few of the more popular routes; other camel safaris are organised throughout Rajasthan. Some, like the ones above, originate in Jaisalmer, Bikaner or Mandawa, while others traverse the area around Jodhpur and Shekhavati, the latter rich with fresco-decorated havelis. Camel safaris like the ones in the vicinity of Jaisalmer and Shekhawati offer plenty of scope for touring medieval forts, visiting ancient temples and photographing some of Rajasthan's most imposing and fascinating monuments. The ones around Bikaner are, on the contrary, more suited for a glimpse of typical village life. You probably won't see too many famous forts or palaces on these circuits, but it's a grand opportunity to get a real taste of rural Rajasthan. All major hotels and travel agents in the areas book Camel Safaris. You can get in touch with your travel agent or

your hotel for an enjoyable and a memorable camel safari trip. Enquire About This Tour >> © Inja Indiatravel - Travel agency India Delhi, Travel agents Noida India, cheap package vacation, Adventure tour travel India, online airline reservation etc.
