We went on a full two days trip. This meant that on the second day's afternoon we were lucky to have a guide for ourselves because other tourists had left. Still we had enjoyed their company while they were there. Altogether we loved the nature. The dune is only for the evening, be aware! The rest of the landscape though... More

Many thanks for your review, and we're so glad that you had a great time with us. We can definitely recommend the multi-day trips for those who have the time to spare - you start to learn a little more about life in the Thar, get to experience increasing isolation, spend more time with your guide, learn to help out...

Many thanks for your review! We're glad that you enjoyed your day out in the desert with us. Sorry about the rain! We can never tell during monsoon season, but the weather is pretty nice at the moment, so maybe you should visit again! Best wishes, and thank you for choosing Trotters. More

We took a safari with Trooters and spent the night sleeping in the desert. We had a secluded spot with no other tourists in sight. It was a great experience and the whole trip was very well organised, including pick up direct from our hotel. Our guide, Malu was excellent and happy to go at whatever pace we wanted. He... More

Trotters made organising and booking very straightforward which wasn't always my experience of travelling around this amazing country. The jeep, food, camels and guides all felt very authentic and the prices are VERY reasonable. The guides were kind and attentive as three of our small group suffered from heat exhaustion. Even the drivers collecting guests each evening really cared about... More

We really enjoyed our camel safari! The staff/leaders were really helpful and friendly! They always made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed! We did the overnight trek which meant we slept under the stars in an area of the dunes where there were no other people/groups. Great group size (there were only 6 of us) - really... More

Hi guys - many thanks for your review, and we're glad to hear that you had a great experience and were well looked-after by our staff. The reason you returned to town at 9.30am rather than at approximately 11am (the advertised time) is simply that the guides were super quick in getting the camels ready that morning, so that you...

Did the overnight trip and had an excellent time. There was always more than enough food, water and friendly staff around to make the trip comfortable. Being able to use the guesthouse in the morning after the safari was an excellent added touch that means you can check out of your hotel for a night to do the trip.

Initially I wasn't so keen on the camel safari idea, but the Trotters Safari has become one of the highlights of my trip so far. We did the overnight safari, leaving at 2.30pm and returning at 11am, which was just enough time to enjoy yourself without getting over the camel riding. The staff were all exceptionally helpful, including helping me... More

I originally booked a 1,5 day trip (changing it to a 1 day trip) with a complimentary pick up at the train station. Arriving rather late (after a train delay), the guys from Trotters were already there and dropped me off at my accommodation. The day after, the trip started. It was a small group of people, that immediately mixed... More

Complimentary pick up on arrival in a jeep, which took us to the Trotters Head Office for a brief introduction to the safari we were expecting the following day. We received a discount at their Hotel for one night. The safari started early in the morning and even though it was fun, we would recommend starting in the afternoon to... More

We went for the afternoon safari, which consisted of a Jeep trip out to the desert, stopping at an oasis and an abandoned village, followed by a 2 hour camel ride across the desert to an area of sand dunes. There we were provided with snacks and beer (a reasonably priced extra!) before watching the sunset over the dunes. This... More
