Train is safer. There´s an overnight train.

Usually at night the roads are full of speeding trucks, I don´t know if this is true about Jaisalmer. The road to Jaisalmer is quite good but still you pass many villages and during the day I saw a lot of goats and donkeys and cows in the middle of it. There´s no visibility at night (lights on the road) and your driver might fall asleep (ours was sleepy in day time).

I didn´t feel too safe when driving it daytime and suddenly there was a cloud of dust caused by 7 military tanks coming our side of the lane with 0 visibility... (They do practices/training there in winter....).

I would try to avoid driving at night.
