Enjoy a camel ride or treat yourself with ice cream made of camel milk. The National Research Centre on Camel breeds the best camels in Bikaner and conducts research related to the ship of the desert. This is a one of its kind institute in India. The farm is a complex of camel stables and enclosures and buildings.
The Camel Safaris stretch from anywhere between two to seven days, with the longer ones going up to a month. Shorter, daylong camel safaris, which give a glimpse of the desert, are also organised. In most cases, one camel is provided per person, and a camel cart accompanies the entourage, laden with food, utensils and other supplies. Tents, food, mineral water, mattresses and an escort are invariably provided, and most operators will also make sure you get a full dose of local entertainment in the evenings. For longer camel safaris, which cover a few days, camps are usually set up at night in the vicinity of the villages.
Experience living in the wild at Gajner Palace and Wildlife sanctuary. The lush foliage of the woods is home to the Nilgai, Chinkara, Black Buck, Wild Boar and Imperial Sand Grouse. Within the sanctuary is located the Gajner Palace, a summer resort of the kings, which has now been converted into a hotel.
One can shop for Mojaris (Bikaneri style footwear), Kundan work, wooden antiques, Rasgullas, bhujia, lacquer bangles and carpets in Bikaner. Bikaner is also famous for the exquisite works of art made out of camel hide.
