Ratnawali camps are open for all-Adults as well as children. However, the management does not allow infants and children below the age of 5 years at their premises. Teenagers and young children can have a great time at the desert and village safaris.
Ratnawali camp is a desert camp, which is located near the Sam sand dunes of Jaisalmer. Close to the Kanoi region in the middle of the Thar, the desert camp has to be travelled from the city of Jaisalmer. In order to reach Jaisalmer, one can take the following ways:
In order to cover the distance to Jaisalmer in a short span of time, one can board a flight to the city. However, flights to the Jaisalmer airport are limited and connects only from Delhi and Jaipur. Therefore, one can make use of the Jodhpur domestic airport, which connects the city from other parts of India like Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Udaipur and Kolkata.
Unlike the airway, Jaisalmer’s rail connection very well links the city to the rest of India. Situated in the heart of Jaisalmer city, the railway station operates regular trains from Delhi and Mumbai. Parts of Rajasthan like Jaipur and Jodhpur are also connected to Jaisalmer. Highly luxurious, ‘Palace on Wheels’ also runs through the city.
Being well centered in the state of Rajasthan, Jaisalmer roads give a good access to the various parts of Rajasthan. This includes prominent cities like Jaipur, Jodhpur and Bikaner. Both Jodhpur and Bikaner are close to 4 hrs away, whereas Jaipur is little far. Besides, buses of Rajasthan roadways and private travel agencies are excellent means to travel within the state.
