When I went on the Camel Safari with Trotters I was pretty happy with it, until unfortunately it started raining and was super windy with sandstorm like conditions. We went to the building that they have in the middle of the desert and stayed there for half the day because the conditions were terrible. It was ok for the afternoon,... More

My friend and I chose the early afternoon departure and next morning return camel safari and found it the perfect amount of time! From the first ride it was amazing, we stopped off in two remote villages before getting to the camels. Once we arrived we met others who had been trekking since morning and continued on to the campsite... More

There are loads of safari operators in Jaisalmer. We picked The Trotters Camel Safari team and we couldn't find a fault. We did the 2D1N safari departing early afternoon. The guides were very helpful and attentive. Picked us up from our hotel and drove us back as well. Food was simple, delicious and plentiful. Riding the camels was OK, but... More

Just got back from an overnight camel trek starting at 6.15am and returning at 11am the next day. As promised, you really are out in the desert (mainly scrub not dunes) and don't see any other tourists, though we were lucky enough to see a Desert Fox, Gazelle and a Dung Beetle. It was a really super trip with Punja,... More

The camel safari is outstanding. Imagine how good it is, that the camel riding is not the best part of the tour. The best, the staff (Malu is the number one!) and the night in the sand looking to the sky. If you go to Jaisalmer, MUST DO this, and with Trotters me and my friends had a great ovenight... More
