Very friendly, great service, great entertainment, great experience.
Dec 2019
I stayed at the Wanderlust Guest House in Jaisalmer, which I would also recommend, where I was originally just planning on looking around the city for a couple of days and not heading into the desert. However, the desert safari seemed like such good value that it seemed silly not to do it, and I am very glad I did.

Unlike a lot of the pictures of such experiences that you see, there was no other tourists about on our route. The whole experience was both very friendly and very professional. All food, drink and bedding was provided. Plenty of food too; snacks, fruit, main evening meal, a big breakfast following day.

We stopped at a few sites en route, such as an oasis and a ruined fort, which was cool, and broke up the journey. The camel riders were very friendly, cooked us good food, and told us stories, sang some traditional songs for us and even danced with us around the campfire.

Sleeping under the stars was a great experience, every time you wake up in the night, being greeted with an amazing star-studded sky. I was concerned that I might be too cold at night, having not come prepared, but I was offered plenty of bedding to keep me warm.

All in all, I would highly recommend, and I really can't think of anything negative to say about it.

Incredible guides and service
Mar 2020 • Friends
Four friends and I did a camel safari with the most amazing guides Sambhu and Nabu for my birthday. Booking the excursion was extremely seamless, and after calling the number listed on the website, Padam coordinated the rest of the details via text, including pickup and drop off at the airport. Prior to excursion, it was nice to wait at the Wanderlust Hotel, and have a nice meal, showers, WiFi and plugs to charge devices. The actual excursion was incredible. Sambhu and Nabu are incredible guides and cooks. They did everything they could to fulfill our needs and wants while remaining professional yet personable. Sleeping under the stars was surprisingly comfortable, and it was nice to wake up to Masala tea. I’d highly recommend this company and experience.

An amazing experience!
A special day and night that is highly recommended! Sambhu is a very friendly host who really knows everything to make your night a magical experience. He is always laughing and having a good time. He brought us to a secluded area of the desert off the beaten track. We did not see any one else. We had a delicious homemade dinner of Indian food cooked by him over a bonfire and served chai with breakfast in bed during the sunrise. My friends and I had so much fun exploring the dunes in the morning. I liked that the camels are very healthy and well cared for and are even let loose to roam free during the night. Thank you Sambhu and Wanderlust Camel Safari!! 😁

Magical night!
Nov 2019
What a wonderful night we spent!
We decided last minute to go on that trip with our guest house (Wanderlust Guest House) and we had a magical moment. We went from the guest house to a hunted village and to a tiny village in the desert by Jeep, where we met Sambhu and the camels. He gave us a ride to the campsite during sunset. The ride was the most relaxing. When we arrived in the camp we saw our beds directly in the sand ready for us to sleep on them. The camp was small and cozy. We spent the evening with Sambhu and the Jeep conductor, who both were really friendly! Sambhu taught us how to prepare roti without a kitchen, in the middle of nowhere without putting sand on them. We cooked them, had a nice dinner and spent the evening talking around the campfire. The sky was clear and that made the moment even more perfect. That night was for my friend and I the most memorable one we had of our trip, and created memories that never will be forgotten. We came back to town the next morning, a bit sad to say goodbye to the ones we met and to that place where we felt our absolute best.
I would absolutely recommend this safari, this will create wonderful memories.

Wonderful night in the desert
We absolutely adored our experience in the desert with our guide Sambhu, he was very dedicated. We were only two with one guide and we really appreciated being separated from the beginning from another group of 8 people. We did a whole day camel ride, followed by a night in the desert under the stars. Everything was wonderful. The meals were cooked in front of us, on a fire, the water was supplied by Sambhu, and overnight we were very comfortable on beds with massive blankets to keep us warm overnight. We didn’t see any tourist whatsoever, it was very silent and the views were spectacular. We had long and deep discussions about the culture and social aspects of life in the desert with our guide, which really helped us understand the people from Rajasthan. Furthermore, Sambhu was taking excellent care of his camels, you could see the attachment between them. Overall, we strongly recommend this company to everyone wishing to have a unforgettable experience in the desert!

Beautiful night, just unsure about camel riding ethics...
We were really excited to go on the overnight desert Safari. The organisation of the night was well run and we really enjoyed ourselves. The guides were really friendly.

The only part of the trip we are unsure about is the camel riding and how ethical it is. We can't help but feel sad for the camels when they're pulled by rope from their noses and then are let free to roam overnight but with a tie around their legs... However we are glad to hear that the selling of camels elsewhere has recently stopped, which is a step in the right direction I suppose.

Arriving at the campsite was amazing and we had a lovely dinner and breakfast cooked by the friendly Gudu. We watched the sunset which was stunning and we slept under the stars in our own little area which made us feel like the only people in the desert.

If we were to do this again, we definitely would skip the camel riding, and would prefer to go directly to the camp in a 4x4 jeep instead.

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you so much for your time and Reviews. Our camel is well taken care of, in the night we leave them free to roam and eat and relax, why we tie legs, as you seen they can walk fast, in 12 hrs they can go 40/50 KM, We need back so we go in the morning and find foot steps and take back to home. Highly appreciated your words and time. Best Regards Team wanderlust

Esperienza indimenticabile
Great experience, the most magical moment of our holiday in India!!!
Everything was perfect. The camel safari, the dinner, the night upon the stars, the music played by our guides, Nabo and Sambu, who were so great, kind, they have made our tour unforgettable.
A special thanks to Padam, the manager of the agency, always reliable and reactive, he helped us in the organization.
Don’t hesitate if you want to live an authentic experience far from the touristic places.

Magnificent!
Jan 2020 • Friends
Our camel safari with Sambhu was likely our most enjoyable and memorable experience in India! The scenery was spectacular and Sambhu ensured we safely enjoyed the camel ride to camp. Sambhu prepared fresh chai (from scratch!) for us on arrival and we watched as he cooked us a delicious home cooked meal on a fire using locally grown vegetables. He even made us chapati from scratch and explained Indian cooking. We are looking forward to using his tips and techniques for cooking at home! We were tucked into our beds with lots of warm blankets and gazed at the incredible stars above. I even saw a few shooting stars! We have never seen so many stars shining so bright! We were woken to a cup of fresh hot chai and a beautiful breakfast ready for us. Sambhu was the brightest star of all the stars in the desert. He was very friendly, accommodating and did a wonderful job at making us feel safe and at ease in the middle of the desert. We would recommend this experience to anyone traveling India. Make sure to ask for Sambhu as your guide. We hope to return in the future! 10/10!!!

Wonderful, must-do experience when in Jaisalmer
Amazing experience, all around - from the pick up to the drop off the morning after. We arrived in the desert area after 1h ride from Jaisalmer and there we started our tour with the camels which took around 2h. Once arrived at the base camp, a couple of guys were there already welcoming us (group of 5ppl), preparing tea and setting up the beds. Even if the weather was not great (cloudy and very windy), the whole team did everything to make our stay enjoyable. We sat around the fire while the guys were prepping dinner and we had a great time with amazing Sambu and the guys, showing us recipes and taking pictures with us. Would recommend the guys to anyone, super nice and friendly. Loved it - well done guys!
