Very enjoyable overnight trek off the beaten track. Really well organised and run, all the staff ensured we were safe and comfortable. Sleeping under stars in the dunes was an amazing experience and I would thoroughly recommend an overnight trek.

After arriving to the train station my friend and I were picked up by one of trotter's friendly drivers. We weren't due to go on the safari till 2pm but they a gave us a much needed room to shower and relax while we waited. The safari was incredible and what it says on the box; we visited the oasis...

Look no further in selecting your camel safari tour company. The experience was simply amazing. Typically I don't write Travel Advisor reviews, but this company is just too good. Few highlights: 1) Trotter's has access to its own private dune - a huge advantage and key differentiator in the experience. The dune is breathtakingly beautiful at sunset and sunrise. The... More

I really enjoyed my safari with Trotters. I was so excited to be close to the camels. The desert was beautiful and it felt all the more special since we didn’t encounter any other people throughout the trip. The Trotters crew are completely competent and caring and made sure we were comfortable the whole time. And they are amazing cooks!... More

We went for a overnight camel safari with Trotters in Sep 2014. The whole arrangement of the safari was excellent. Trotters had taken care of the requirement of the customer. All the staff of Trotters are very professional and always ready to help. They provided unlimited water, food in the desert. What ever they promised, they fulfilled that. The service... More

I paid around 1600 for a two day / one night safari, and it was worth it. They brought us to a place where no other tourists were, just our group. The dunes place was not that big, but beautiful. A minus you get for the camel ride. I wished I could ride the camel by ny own, a little... More

Many thanks for your review. Regarding riding alone, if you'd asked your guide you would've been allowed to do this at least for a short while - we have to be careful because if people aren't experienced riders it's safer for the camels to be roped or led but if anyone wants to try riding alone (especially if you have...

Had a great time on safari with Trotters.

This agency is very popular, nevertheless it gives good service, especially the guides. They understand the importance of good reviews on social media, so they will give the "western" standard service. They have fixed prices for safari, that means no need to negotiate, straight forward: Sam Dune/Khuri = 1400 (for 2 days 1 night) and their "original" route is about... More
