The highlight was the camel ride to watch the glorious sunset in the Thar desert (Khuri). The mama's desert camp provided good entertainment and food in the night however if you reach the place in the afternoon you won't find any food and have to survive on chips and cookies. We reached there at 2:30 PM with kids after 4 hrs of drive through the desert and was surprised to hear that the cook will come only at 6 PM to cook.
We went for camel ride in our own vehical at 4:30 PM for the Camel ride. The camel ride was good and sunset was breath taking. We got back at 6:30 PM to evening snack of Fried peanuts and bhajiyas/pakoras ( was mediocore) and Tea( good). At 8:30 PM they started the evening program of local dancers and singers. The bonfire was good however was too far from the seating. The program was quite entertaining and singers amazing followed by a buffet dinner of Rajasthani food. The checkout was 10AM the following morning however he gave us an hour more as he forgot to inform us. As we drove past many desert camp, we decided to stop by at the NEW desert camp called the "Marwar Desert camp". The tents at this camp was well equiped and the place had more amenities like sitting area and gazebos. I would like to stay at the Marwar camp next time.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Mama's Resort and Camp is an exclusive camp experince at the golden sanddunes of Khuri.Every time you step onto the endless expanse of sun-kissed, gilded sands of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, your sense are ensconced in the calming tranquility and stillness of the place. The camp promises a truly unparalleled experience of the desert in itselement. It is a toast to the erstwhile Maharajas and you are treated to one with a panache that leves you overwhelmed. Just as the royalty camped it Tents(khemas) away from the palaces, the resort spins a similar ambience with its modern Swiss cottage tents right in the midst of the desert. Just as the royalty traversed stretches of desert on camels, the evenings see you astride colorfully caparisoned camels led by ethnically dressed butlers as you begin your sojourn of miles of shimmering sand dunes ito the sunset. Lounging on the dunes, one can only gaze in breathless wonderment as the sun begins to go down and casts an ember halo over the desert horizon. ... more less
