One of the major attractions of Jaisalmer for backpackers is to go on a camel safari to the Thar desert. As in any other tourist place, there are many agencies offering similar services. It lays on the hands of the backpackers to choose one of them. As before, we recommend to shop around and get informed properly before to decide which safari suits you better.
We took the offer of an agency with good reviews and were very little satisfied in the end, although the experience of riding a camel through the desert and sleeping under the stars is completely recommendable. It was good fun and we met nice people on the safari, which made it even better. It turn out that Julia is a natural born camel rider and even made her camel to run!!!
