We chose this safari based on previous tripadvisor opinions and for sure we chose correctly. From the get go David and Sam were prompt and clear with what is on offer and how things will progress.

It was an amazing day. Food and water always provided and the best staff ever. Everything is there to enjoy and have a different experience. Is so real. Nothing is fake and really worth your money. The sky is unbelievable, dont loose the opportunity of enjoying so many stars.

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

Many thanks for your review - we're so happy that you got so much from the camel ride and from your night under the stars. Also great to read that our staff took top care of you and that you were kept well away from the crowds.

We had a great email exchange prior to arriving in Jaisalmer in the rain, so it was somewhat disheartening to have no pick up as agreed at the train station. After this rocky start (we jointly agreed to delay our trip by 24 hours and change it from the 2300 INR safari to the 1800 INR safari), we had a... More
