Day 01: ARRIVE DELHI
On arrival at Indira Gandhi International Airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel where you will have time to relax from your flight.

 
Delhi, one-time capital of kingdoms and empires is now a sprawling, fascinating metropolis blending the past and the present into an exotic mix. Delhi is the perfect introduction to the composite culture of an ancient land, a window to the kaleidoscope of life that is India.
Overnight in Delhi.
 
Day 2: DELHI to JAISALMER by TRAIN
After breakfast your time is at leisure to explore the city and perhaps pick up some bargains in the many bazaars. The day is punctuated by lunch in a local Indian restaurant.
 
Late this afternoon you’ll transfer to the railway station to connect with your overnight train to
Jaisalmer. Indian rail travel is an experience in itself. The train passes through deprived neighbourhoods, past modern apartment blocks to head out into the arid lands of Rajasthan. Along the route you’ll see the brightly coloured saris and turbans of the local people which provide a stark contrast to the beiges of the desert, truly a photographers dream.
 
Day 03: JAISALMER
As you head west the desert sands are punctuated by timeless villages where locals gather under the shade of market-place trees, their camels crouched seemingly oblivious to the heat of the sun.
 
Around lunchtime your train pulls into Jaisalmer where you will be met and transferred to your accommodation.
 
Jaisalmer has an interesting history with one legend telling of Lord Krishna - the head of the Yadav clan – foretelling Arjuna that a remote descendent of the Yadav clan would build his kingdom atop the local Trikuta Hill. His prophecy was fulfilled in 1156 AD when Rawal Jaisal, a descendent of the Yadavs and a Bhatti Rajput, abandoned his fort at Lodurva and founded a new capital, Jaisalmer, atop the hill.
 
This afternoon you can roam the beautiful medieval fort area and exploring the honey coloured streets and discovering its famous havelis. Overnight will be at the hotel.
 
Day 04: JAISALMER CAMEL SAFARI
After breakfast you set off by 4WD for the famous sand dunes and a visit to a typical Rajasthani tribal village.
 
Here you start your camel safari, riding into the desert passing through small villages and grazing camel herds. As the sun sinks you’ll expeience a fabulous sunset from the dunes, the sky set on fire with colours magnified by the desert dust.
 
On reaching your camp dinner will be served under the stars.Overnight at the camp.
 
Day 5: DESERT CAMEL SAFARI 
Waking in the desert is a wonderful experience as the cool are is warmed by the rising sun. After breakfast you continue your safari through the desert.
 
Passing small villages it seems that our modern lives are impossibly distant. The scene is almost Biblical with local women carry pots atop their heads as they head to the well.Brought back to reality by shouting school children en route to school. Occasionally you pass a village shrine or temple where a lone bell may toll, rung by someone in prayer on their way to the fields, religion playing a vital role in local peoples’ lives.
Overnight at the camp.
 
Day 06: DESERT CAMEL SAFARI
A final full day on the camels with a last night at the camp.
 
Day 07: DESERT CAMEL SAFARI, BIKANER, TRAIN to DELHI
The camel safari ends and we re-join our transport for the journey north to Bikaner, a desert capital that has played an important role in border security between clans and latterly nations for hundreds of years.
 
On arrival at Bikaner you’ll enjoy a hearty lunch at the beautiful palace before having some time to relax or explore. In the late evening you board the sleeper train back to Delhi.
 
Day 08: DELHI – DEPARTURE
