Our Camel safaris are adventures and unique because we travel from remote areas filled with joy and free from tourist distractions with a maximum no. of persons per safari. The main objective is to spread knowledge of the natural and cultural resources of Northern India and distribute the benefits of tourism throughout the region, especially to the rural communities. A longer safari also offers you an opportunity to experience the more remote areas and therefore the relaxation the desert has to offer and it means more fun on the camel and more nights with the shooting stars rather than more sightseeing. Our staff team would take immense pleasure in showing you our special part of India in an environmentally friendly way

First they took us to see the villages of Kuldhara and Khaba. We saw the Khaba fort. It is a fountain of knowledge on local geological changes. Spent an hour reading the plaques and still needed a couple of hours to read all of them completely. We also saw the oasis which is manmade. Then in the evening they took... More

Pappu the owner and his remarkable staff run this camp and its Swiss tents, and their efforts make it all worth while. The evening performance was by local singers and dancers, which means that visitors are contributing locally, rather than to the coffers of an absentee-owner. The food is well-cooked and plentiful, and the stars really shine in the night... More

Went there for some thrill and adventure for one night stay. The driver Mr. Meer Khan picked us from our hotel and took us to Kuldhara, the empty village. An exciting experience to see the unity in old times which is lacking in today's world. Then he t1ook us to the sand dunes. Had a camel ride there. It is... More

safari with amazing people, everyone's very warm, awesome rajasthani food. probably the best sky view. Very quite, good performances. overall a great experience. The owner is a local who earlier worked as a camel guide, he knows the desert well and has chosen a good peaceful location for the camp.

This was without a doubt one of the highlights of our 2 month trip in India. Papu the owner arranged our pick from the station and drove us approx 40 minutes into the desert where we met his team. We rode camels deep into the magical desert and spotted amazing wildlife along the way. We watched the sunset on the... More

I've seen brilliant displays of stars before - from high in the Colorado Rockies, on desolate beaches in Costa Rica and in the mountains of Massachusetts - but nothing like the display we witnessed while staying at Damodra Desert Safaris. You can read my blog about it at http://www.themeanderthals.com/the-gifts-of-the-desert/, but suffice to say that Papu and his staff have found... More

I was so happy that we decided to go on the Damodra Desert Safari while visiting India. The camel ride was an amazing experience. The guides made us feel very comfortable as they led us through the desert. We ended the safari on the sand dunes, where we watched the sunset, which was truly a magical experience. Next, we drove...

This place is just amazing! The staff is super happy and friendly. The sights are amazing, and the dinner at night with the bonfire and live music makes sure the magical atmosphere stays even after you get off the camel.

The camels were great, the guides even better, and the sunset at the dunes magnificent! We almost stayed overnight with the guides at the dunes but sadly we had to leave early the next day :) The guides constantly worked hard to ensure our comfort and wellness which really made the trip for us. Definitely would recommend this safari!
