If you want a tent stay and camel safari, head straight for the camel safari and return next day morning, so that you can use the rest of the day for going around Jaisalmer.

Hi

Arriving by 5pm, you are going to miss sun set.

You can do camel ride but no charm.

In the morning you can do something else evening time only dance and dinner and night at camp.

Suggestion- add one day to your visit if possible

With regards

To be honest we didnt like the tent stay and headed back to the city into a proper hotel specially since we went last week and it was very hot in the tents but october might be a bit better.

Namaste,

Just 01 suggestion - if travelling with your family please choose a deluxe camp or else you would come back disappointed.

Also, camel ride at sunrise is in a way better as it isn't too crowded with tourists at that early hour.

Best Regards / City Linkers
