About
My name is Raj, and I was born and raised with camels in the Indian Thar desert, where I still live today. I recently started my own business because I want to share this unique piece of nature with visitors. “Raj is the perfect camel guide: he has life long experience in the desert, is professional and has a friendly attitude. Me and my family discovered the beauty of the deep Thar desert. We became friends with Raj and his lovely camels. They will be in our memory forever." (Olivier Coops)

Raj’s camel safari was one of the best experience we had! We stayed overnight in the safari and therefore enjoyed a beautiful sunset and sunrise, great company and delicious food after a Jeep ride and a camel ride. Raj and his team were really friendly, ambitious and warm-hearted. We definitely recommend this safari with him!

We had a phenomal time on the camel safari with Raj and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone. Just do it.

Raj graciously picked us up from our hotel, with all of our luggage, and we made our way to the desert, first stopping at the abandoned village where he explained its history. From there we went to a desert oasis, a watering hole for camels and other wildlife, that was very charming. He waited patiently as our kids explored the area, before we ventured further into the desert for our camel safari.

During our safari, which they catered to our energy level, Raj was busy cooking a delicious feast in the desert which we ate in a tent they had set up to ensure we had some respite from the desert heat. When we were done, Raj dropped us straight to the airport so we could catch our outbound flight.

Overall, we had an amazing time.

This trip was amazing, we decided not to do the camel so he drove us in the jeep. Where we were was pure desert. We got to climb sand dunes and watch the sunset. They supplied an ice box with beer and wine and there were plenty of comfortable beds we could sit on. Later they made a massive meal of indian snacks, onion pakoras and a curry. We gor to help make the bread which was cool. My only problem was they gave us so much starters the curry was difficult to eat. But also it was extremely spicy but also the tastiest curry I had in my 3 months in india. Everything was prepared from scratch in front of us. We did an evening but we plan to go back and do an over night. The camal man entertained us with songs while he played a large water bottle as a drum. Very nice people and one of our favourite experiences in the 3 months. Thank you camal man

We booked a 3D/2N non-touristic camel safari in the desert. Raj and Ram (our camel guide in the desert) were very friendly, humble and professional guides. The tour met our expectations by providing an authentic experience in the desert with amazing freshly prepared food in the desert, sleeping on the dunes under stars, camel riding and visiting Ram‘s village and family. It felt very authentic and we got a glimpse insight into what life in the Thar desert could be like.

I went to Jaisalmer as a solo traveler and I wanted to try a half day tour in the desert as I didn't have much time. I couldn't have made a better choice. We were supposed to do the tour on a Sunday but due to change of plans I asked Raj to do it on Saturday and he was enough flexible to accept it. Raj's tour was exactly what I was asking for. Authentic and personalized far from the loud, crowded and very touristic experiences that are usually offered in the area and that was easy to find. He picked me up on a jeep very near from my hotel and after adding 2 more passengers (a father with his daughter) and his colleagues, we headed to the magical Thar desert. We started the tour by visiting an abandoned village near to Jaisalmer and then made a short stop to a lake and Raj's village which were both near to the first location. The landscapes were simply astonishing. As the time was passing by, the experience was getting even better. We started going deeper into the desert and approx 1 hour before sunset our camel ride was expecting for us. We did a camel ride for about 45 minutes (that time was just perfect as a camels back is not the most comfortable place to sit in, especially when it moves!) and we made a few short stops on the way for some necessary photos. The temperature was very pleasant and the sun in December was not too hot to burn us. We finished the ride at some incredible sand dunes where we stayed for dinner. The dinner was made by Raj and his colleagues (also his 11 year old nephew was there and helped in everything!) and it was absolutely delicious..typical Indian food at a slow fire with traditional recipients. Adding to this, the moonlight which was so bright in the dark desert I couldn't have imagined a better scenery to end this tour. After 8 hours of tour (including the times needed to move from one place to the other) they brought us back to our hotels again on the same jeep. I've seen some amazing landscapes during my entire trip in India but this was likely the best one taking into account the whole experience. I can't be more thankful to Raj for this unforgettable tour. It will be certainly one day to remember for the rest of my life!
