Safari prices vary dramatically depending on the itinerary and the level of tourist crush. You can book an excursion yourself, or have your hotel do it—but make sure you check exactly what you're going to get for the price asked. Camel safaris are slow; if you're pressed for time, try combining them with jeep travel. One option is to contact the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation's Tourist Reception Center (2992/252–406) for reservations.
