We stayed here during our India road trip [2012-13]. [TripAdvisor is not allowing to select Nov 2012 and hence selecting 2013.] We liked the rustic rural hut type rooms. Cost was 2,700Rs for two and it included all food, LRK safari etc. Do get up early and go for the safari as watching those Khurs (wild a*s) roaming and running... More

We stayed in Desert Coursers for 2 nights in December. Since I am a birder i found this place from that point to be reasonably good as there was lot of bird activity inside the resort it self. Rooms are not very good specially the bathrooms, as if the floor has not been cleaned for years and there was water... More

This place gives a different experience to those who love to do something adventurous although not on a very large scale. There is a beautiful cluster of huts and all of them look like mud huts with thatched roof which gives a very rustic feel to it. They all have beautiful carvings inscribed on their walls. There was a hawker... More

There were four of us traveling in India in January. We stayed at "Desert Coursers" camp for two nights and one full day. The hospitality of Dhunraj was what really made it special and the lovely guests (all of Indian origin) who were staying there. The mud huts, although attractive on the outside, left a lot to be desired on... More

This place includes everything! We had many delicious meals, everything was thought about. The huts were lovely. We went on two completely different safaris seeing many birds, the wild donkeys and the salt flats. The guide was lovely. The owner of the hotel was very accommodating and so enthusiastic with many great stories to tell. I would go again

This camp was a great experience. Mud huts well provisioned with mozzie nets, air conditioning, fans, shower and toilet - and a wonderful outdoor swing - were better than I expected. The outdoor dining room, lounge was decorated with colourful materials and the huts with inset mirrors and leaves. The food was suitable for local and western tastes. Our desert... More

I recently happened to stay here due to lack of accommodation at nearby places and what do I say I'm disappointed and very angry. I checked the rooms and this property some years ago on my one day drive from Dhordo to Ahmedabad and believe me this place has not changed a single bit as it remains in the dark... More

having been to 96 countries around the world, i can say with conviction that this was perhaps not the best possible experience. i agree with some of the reviewers about the openly racist attitude of the owner who is nothing more than a comical maverick whose greatest asset is in shamelessly licking the feet of the 'firangis' vis-a-vis the lesser...
