Enjoyed being there. Spent a good amount of time walking. The place doesn't expands over a large area. You would see many different breeds of camels. You may also find peacocks there. The camel products are also available, if you want to take one as a souvenir.
The environment is very good here, this is a very good place for camel lovers, the shops here, have nice products made from camel leather, bones, hair and camel milk. If you want to grab some then try to visit early, or they will be sold out, they sells only 6 pieces of soaps, chocolates everyday and other things like biscuits and milk are also very limited in stock. Ticket price is just ₹50 for indians, while it's higher for international tourists. If you have took a camel ride before then according to me it's not worth ₹100. But if camel ride is new experience for you then you must go for it. You may be able to see some parrots, national bird of India (Peacocks) and peahen along with camels. Don't forget to visit the camel museum, there you can see some reserved objects made from camel bones, blankets and sweaters made of camel hair. There's also a skeleton of an aborted camel baby in the museum. Facilities for chilled and purified drinking water and toilet are available in the farm near the main entrance. Overall it is a very beautiful place to visit. You can spend between 1 to 3 hours here. You can click photos, but not in the shops.
The center has been identified as one of the important tourist place of Bikaner and is included in the tourist book. The tourist visiting the canter can see the camel of different breeds and their behaviour. A camel museum is available to apprise them of the developmental and research aspects of the camel in the desert ecosystem. Facilities of camel riding, safari and video/photography are available for the visitors. Camel milk parlour is a special attraction because it vendors unique value added camel milk products like ice-cream, hot and cold beverages. Nice place, quite empty. One gets to see the camels. One can take a camel ride too. Shoes are available too, that sells camel leather and camel bone items. Plus there is a camel dairy shop that sells camel's milk, kulfi, ice-cream, coffee etc.
It is a very useful , educationally fulfilling and one of its kind place in India and most probably in the world . The informative museum and guiding is very useful. The camels and their calves are a constant point of unmixed interest . The environment is also very nice. It houses some handicrafts shops . The foods are very enjoyable. The ice-cream , kulfi , coffee, lassi and tea from the camel's milk are very tasty.
It's a very amazing park and research center for camels. I have never seen such different breeds of camel. Totally a very great experience.
