'Rajsthan Desert Safari' package has been optimised leaving behind the
'package approach'. It's an experience rather that a package. Camels, the
sturdy guys of the desert, have been a part and parcel of people's life here
for ages. A camel safari makes you recollect the era when the traders from
far off countries set foot here and passed through the Thar Desert. The
desert could, in an instant, conjure up vivid images as colourful as the
cities and people of Rajasthan. It's a land where the sand dunes change
their address every now and then but the desert itself does not. The
package, that suits first timers the best, brings with a variety of
experiences that you would love to remember. Also included in the package
are sightseeing trips of the cities of Delhi and Agra where the splendour of
the Mughal kings can still be felt in the gallant forts and dream-like
monuments that stand tall and elegant.
