Camel Safari at Sam sand dune is one of the oldest outdoor activity. Here you hire a camel for a one to two-hour safari tour at the desert dunes of Sam. The mid point of this tour is the Sun set point at Sam, which is a perfect spot to grab pictures of all the dunes and an incredible sun set or sun rise.

2. Jeep Safari

In a jeep safari tour at Sam sand dune, you hire a whole jeep or book a seat in a shared vehicle which will take you 3-4 dunes which are 30 to 60 meter tall. As private cars are not allowed to drive on the sand dunes of Sam, a ride on a Jeep is the only option and it’s quite entertaining.

3. Night Safari (in Jeep)

As both camel safari and jeep safari finish around sunset, the desert dunes of Sam still offers some fantastic view after 7:00 PM. That is a ride on the sand dunes and the only visibility is the headlight of the Jeep. Night safari in Sam is a new introduction and is preferred by travelers who are seeking more adventurous tour at Sam, Jaisalmer..

4. Free walk at Sam sand dune

And finally, you can plan a walk at the 3-5 km sand dune area of Sam, and there is no entry fee. A good time to enjoy a free walk at sand dunes is from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM or early morning from 4:00 AM to 6:00 AM, as the weather is calmer.
