The tour will start either from the Trotters Office located at Fort Road, Gopa Chowk, near the Fort Main Gate, Jaisalmer or we will pick you up from your Hotel.
The Half-Day Sunrise Camel Safari is a perfect getaway for those who wish to experience the desert life in a short span of time. These tours will offer you the freedom to enjoy the beautiful sunrise in the desert along with having a delicious breakfast with your family and friends. This tour is especially for those who want to explore the desert and also want to save their time and visit the beautiful city of Jaisalmer later in the day. You will reach the dunes in a jeep after an approximately one-hour drive from Jaisalmer. Once you reach there, you will be welcomed by our friendly guides and healthy camels. We follow a policy of one person per camel and the best part about this camel safari is that you will be enjoy a beautiful sunrise in the desert. You may click beautiful pictures of the sunrise while our guides cook delicious breakfast for you. After your breakfast, you’ll mount on a camel and ride for approximately 90 minutes to the jeep point. From there, you will enjoy your ride to Jaisalmer, visiting the oasis as well as the Khaba Fort on the way back. You will enjoy this camel safari as you will not only experience a beautiful sunrise in the desert, but will also get fresh delicious, hygienic and mouth-watering breakfast; adequate packaged drinking water; and jeep support.
The tour will start at 5:00am and end at 11:00am.
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.

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).
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.
Facilities PLEASE NOTE: there are no washing/bathroom facilities available after leaving Jaisalmer. Please try to minimize the use of toilet paper: it spoils the dunes and is difficult and unpleasant for our staff to clean up. We recommend that you adopt the local method of washing with water. If you do use toilet paper, please do not bury it or leave it in the open: either bag-and-bin or burn it (we can provide matches). Wet wipes must be bagged and returned to town for disposal.
Please help us to keep the desert tidy by returning all your litter to camp.
