Sam Sand Dunes is a must visit place in Jaisalmer. It is famous for a camel Safari. The scene at the time of sunrise and sunset is very beautiful in Sam. Camel safari in desert is also thrilling experience.

I did an evening camel ride at Rojani Resort at Sam Sand Dunes and really enjoyed it. Price is negotiable on arrival. Not sure you'll see much at night.
