The tour will start from the Trotters Office located at Fort Road, Gopa Chowk, near the Fort Main Gate, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
Dive into the rich tradition and culture of Rajasthan by going out on the Camel Safari with a Cultural Programme. It is a great option for those who want to experience the Rajasthani Folk Dance & music. These tours offer you an opportunity to explore the desert as well as experience the Rajasthani Folk Dance & Music in a camp. You will enjoy an approximately 2 hour drive by jeep to the sunset point. There you will be welcomed by our humble guests and they will take you to the sunset point on a camel. You may enjoy the view of a beautiful sunset in the desert and then you will return to the camp, where you will be served welcome drinks i.e. chai (tea) and snacks. You may then sit and enjoy a live dance & music performance by the local inhabitants of the desert. Later, you will be served a Veg. Buffet at the camp. After having dinner, you will return back to Jaisalmer in the jeep. These tours include visits to a natural oasis, an important water source for local villagers, farmers and animals. Then, you will proceed towards the ruined Khaba Fort, which houses a small museum and is frequently inhabited by peacocks. It also affords excellent views of the deserted village that lies beneath it. You will also have an opportunity to visit an inhabited desert village. You will enjoy this camel safari as you will not only experience the desert life but will also witness a live music & dance performance. You will also get fresh delicious, hygienic and mouth-watering meals; adequate packaged drinking water; and jeep support.
The tour will start at 1:30 PM and would end at around 10:00 PM.
We also offer a great accommodation at affordable prices, right next to the Jaisalmer Fort. The rooftop restaurant at the Desert Cow Guest House offers a great panoramic view of the Jaisalmer Fort.

Know about the inclusions, the add-ons as well as about the things to carry on your safari.
English speaking guides
Full jeep support
Freshly-prepared vegetarian meals, (breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner, depending on your departing/returning time), chai/coffee and plenty of bottled water. A full menu is available at our office, or on request by email. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements.
Secure luggage storage and the use of our guesthouse facilities for showering and resting both before and after your safari.
Free pick-up service from your hotel/transport on the day of your safari: just let us know your hotel name or arrival time and method of transport. We can collect from any hotel outside the fort, and pick-up time is half an hour before the scheduled start of your safari. Otherwise the starting point is the Trotters office (reporting time half an hour before the scheduled start of your safari).
Camel Carts: Our camel carts can seat a maximum of 4 people, and are suggested for those who might not want to ride camels for long periods of time, and for groups with young children.
Sightseeing: Our trips include visits to the Khaba Fort and the Jassu Oasis (or a desert village if requested), though we can also provide additional visits to other historical monuments and other desert village locations. Due to time constraints this is recommended only for travel on our multi-day tours.
Long-sleeved shirt and long trousers.
Sunglasses, sunhat, and scarf. (We don’t recommend that you wear contact lenses as the very fine sand can easily get behind them. Please bring your prescription glasses instead.)
During winter, a warm jacket or shawl for the evening and early morning.
A torch (flashlight) – no light source is available at the campsite.
For morning departures / late afternoon returns, something to occupy yourself during the long lunch break (books, cards, music etc).
Camera (be very careful with electronic equipment as the sand can easily enter the mechanism).
Please bring any medication you think you might need.
Children Children aged 4-6 are half-price and must share a camel with a responsible adult guardian. Children aged 7 and over are charged full price and can ride their own camel at their guardian’s discretion. There is no charge for children under the age of 4. We do not recommend overnight safaris for very young children, but are happy to recommend our half day tour. For safety reasons, children under the age of 4 will not be permitted to ride camels, even when accompanied by an adult, as both parties need to be capable of holding on to the saddle horn/ropes for the duration of the ride. They must remain in the jeep and be accompanied by an adult guardian at all times.
Campfire Campfires are lit during the winter months (approximately November – February, dependent on the weather). We do not light a campfire during the summer months as the light can draw insects to the campsite. Please note that, for the same reason, no fixed light source is available at the campsite: we recommend that you bring your own torch (flashlight), but to limit its use.
Jeep-only option While the desert landscape is best experienced from the back of a camel, the jeep is available for anyone who cannot or does not wish to ride. If you would like to try a shorter ride at the dunes, just to get a taste of camel riding, this can be arranged. Please note that the jeep route is mostly on roads and farm tracks – it does not follow the camel route and is not a dedicated ‘jeep safari’ as such: just an alternative means of reaching the campsite.
Please help us to keep the desert tidy by returning all your litter to camp.
