Well, the National Research Centre for Camel at village Jorbeer is one of the destinations one should not miss when travelling to Bikaner. Infact, visit the Karni Mata Temple in Deshnoke and proceed to this place. The visiting hours are in the late afternoon so plan accordingly
This place houses a museum on camels, camels of different breeds — both adult and calves, camel ride, camel milk products and leather/hair products besides the research centre. More of an educational destination with some fun thrown in for those who take interest in animals.
I have had an unpleasant experience with camel milk in one of my trips to Salasar, so refrain from any indulgence in its milk & its products. But this in no way should deter you from trying it out ….. in fact most people seem to relish them, especially the kulfi.
It was fun watching the huge number of camels in a place. Pretty quiet and peaceful lot. There was a separate enclosure for the males, females and calves while the aggressive and sick have special enclosures. There are guides to show you around though I think they need to share and show more for what they charge.
The centre maintains 300+ genetically improved elite camels comprising of Bikaneri, Jaisalmeri, Mewari, Kachchhi and some cross breeds. Besides the research work on camel improvement they also have the facility of animal husbandry, popularizing of camel milk and its products etc
