What Really Happened in India [Pushkar Camel Fair]

Pushkar Camel Fair India camel journey

In November last year we journeyed to India with a small but mighty group of fellow adventurous camel loving people.


We had an itinerary planned…. 


We were to buy 6 camels in India, teach our training course (Camel Connection Trust Based Camel Training® ) to our group, hence the camels got trained, then trek these camels from our Indian village where we stayed to the famous Pushkar Camel Fair. We had it all down pat, but, like with all our international journeys, we create A LOT of room for flexibility and we’re sure glad we did!


There’s a bigger purpose to these types of trips…


Before returning home we planned to gift the camels we brought to a village so that they can breed & milk the female camels to help preserve ‘the camel’ in India as numbers are declining.


Sadly, in India camel numbers are dwindling due to modernisation. This is not good news for the camel or their owners and handlers (Raika people) hence their livelihoods. 


The whole purpose of this is to inspire you on what’s possible for you!


We’re ordinary people, just like you. We love adventure, camels and giving back and we know we are not alone (or are we crazy…?!)


So, What Really Happened during our India Camel Journey? Well, there was the crazy entrance into Pushkar Camel Fair with our camels, amongst many things!

Here’s some of last year’s adventurous camel lovers have been saying about the India Camel Journey.



“This was hands-down the most amazing travel experience of my life, where we trained and trekked with undomesticated camels, alongside Raika herdsmen, who welcomed us and treated us like family. I learned so much from Tara and Russell about their Camel Connection training methods, and my relationship with my own camel, once back home (and believe me, I was tempted to stay there forever!) was instantly transformed for the better. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough to any adventurous camel lover, and India and the Raika community will forever hold a special place in my heart 🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳 Enjoy, lucky cameleers. I’ll envy you every step of the way” 🚶🏽‍♀️🐪🐪🐪🐪 (Amy)
