Been on a couple of different camel safaris from Jaisalmer and Trotters was definitely the best- guides were really informative and friendly, camels very accommodating, great food for dinner and breakfast, cold beers if you want them, and a room at a hotel the next day to shower before travelling on. Highly recommend Trotters!

My daughter and I did an overnight camel safari with Trotters. We just loved it. What an amazing experience. The guides were fantastic and gave us great insight into the personalities of the desert dwellers. Chaggran and Punja were in charge. We ate delicious food and even had a personalised desert song performed for us. We still talk and laugh... More

All in all a great experience. When inquiring for the tour, the Trotters team replied fast and even offered to pick us up from the train station to drop us at our hotel. The sunset tour itself contained a visit to a countryside town, an oasis in the desert and the khaba fort followed by a 1.5 hours camel ride... More

After looking around the many camel safari options in Jaisalmer, I decided to go with Trotters because they had good reviews and were very nice when I went into their office. They were straight forward about the costs of everything, which was refreshing. Although their safaris are a little bit more expensive, I think it is well worth the extra... More

Spent from 6:30am until 11:00am the following day on a desert tour with Trotters. Excellent attentive service, you can see they are trying very hard to be a cut above the rest. When we got off our 5am train, they gave us a shower and bed to rest in, this was outstanding and very welcomed. Our camel guide was very... More
