I spent one afternoon and one morning doing camel safari: food was great and location, in the dunes and under the stars, was totally excellent! Good food and, obviously, chai :)

I actually went in Sept 2013 and promised to leave a review and never did - but better late than never, as this is still the number one moment of our two week trip through Rajasthan.

We did a three day two night trek with trotters. We paid 2300Rs a day so 6900Rs . This included everything from turning up at 6.15am at their office to being back 3 days later. ,( although a little chap turned up at the dunes to sell cold beer 150 Rs a bottle), so a good price. This was an... More

I booked the overnight tour with trotters and I do not have any regret at all. They came to pick us up directly at train station and let us use a room in their own guesthouse to freshen up after our overnight train journey. And this was free of charge, as we were going to travel with them. Definitely a... More

Great experience. One of the highlights of our time in India. Highlights were: - Camel trek to and from sand dunes - Beers whilst watching the sunset - Campfire songs - laying down in bed watching the stars in the sky. I saw about 3 shooting stars - we were lucky to be in a nice group of other backpackers.... More

The whole experience of the jeep, the camel, sleeping under the stars, etc was amazing. I just wish someone had explained how it was going to be before leaving Jaisalmer. On the camel it was very hot and it was more than necessary wearing long sleeves, whilst at night it was very cold so it was worth taking thermal clothes!... More
