Post lunch commence your camel safari.From Jaisalmer, a camel safari of a few hours takes you to Badabagh, where the tombs of the Bhatti Rajput kings (erstwhile rulers of Jaisalmer) are worth visiting. Close to Badabagh is the village of Baisakhai, with an interesting old Hindu temple.

Day 03 : Camel Safari:Post breakfast carry on to the village of Roopsi, with its wattle-and-daub houses, straight out of antiquity. Further on from Roopsi, the camel safari winds its way to the village of Ludharva, which is dominated by a Jain temple. Chatrayil, a typical Muslim village, complete with a mosque, is the next halt, and is a nice place to spend the night.Dinner & overnight at Chatrayil.
Day 04 : Camel Safari: Post breakfast we proceed to the Rajput village of Salkha, which is in close proximity to the sand dunes of Beri of Kanoi. When you get to this point, make sure you've got your camera handy. Beri of Kanoi has lots of traditional Rajasthani wells, and you'll invariably find village women, in colourful lehengas, fetching water. Kanoi itself is a village of carpenters, and produces excellent handcarved wooden items- perfect for that `souvenir from Rajasthan' for folks back home.
From Kanoi, the camel safari proceeds to Masooradi village, and then on to the oasis of Jeseiri. After a wash-and-change at Jeseiri (that's what oases are for!), the camels move on to the Rajput village of Dedha and then to Deegasar, a lakeside hamlet which is picture-perfect.
After Deegasar, the next halt is the village of Kuldhara, where excavations have revealed ancient settlements dating back many centuries. From Kuldhara, the safari heads back to Jaisalmer, passing through the hamlets of Moolsagar and Amarsagar on the way. Amarsagar is home to a finely carved Jain temple, and is worth a halt.Overnight Jaisalmer.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
