We originally booked a tour which would have brought us to a camp with actual tents and would have had a lot more people but when we arrived in Jaisalmer we were told by locals to try Sahara Desert camp if we wanted to experience something a little different. And boy was it different! We did the half day 4WD tour with the 3 of us plus another 2 people. But the fun started when we got on our camels and started our trek out in the Thar Desert. It didn’t take long to feel like we were the only people around, riding through the sand dunes until we got to a spot literally in the middle of nowhere. Our camel handler was absolutely amazing, not only with navigating the camels through the dunes but he then set about cooking us and amazing meal, better than some of the restaurants we visited. And he also made us some chai which was the best we tasted. After dinner the others in the group headed back with a 4WD while we explored around and took amazing sunset photos and night time photos (photographers dream, so many stars!). Then sleeping under the stars was a real treat, not tent, no power, no lights. It was absolutely magical. We were woken to the smell of more chai and an amazing sunrise. We had breakfast out in the dessert and then got on our camels to head back to civilisation. I could have easily stayed another day... the experience was amazing and I would highly recommend this trip if you want a little bit off the beaten track and less touristy.

Both the agency owner and the Camel guides were very friendly people. We went to an amazing spot. I recommend not to go for the tent option but for the stretcher in the open air. Good is great, but most importabtly, these people want you to have a good time, and run an honest business. Great people. This is for those who d like an as close as authentic experience as possible. If you want to sleep in 5 star hotels, it might not be for you.

We booked the tour with Sahara Travels in their office. The brothers who run the company are very friendly and helpful. The tour itself was good, but not amazing. You get what you've paid for. Manu brought us in a jeep to the desert from where we started the camel ride. We got one camel each and they keep groups small, we were 4 in total. After an hour we reached the desert camp where Manu made us tea and a snack. It would have been nice if they offered to take pictures, shared stories about the desert, sing a song or play a game. We missed something like this a bit. The dinner however didn't disappoint! Cooked fresh on a camp fire the Dahl and chapatis tasted amazing. They made a spicy dish as well for who isn't afraid of some chillies. We slept in the sand dunes and they provided plenty of blankets. We were happy we brought our own sleeping bags as well, since the blankets provided seemed not very clean. The sky was covered in diamonds and the rest of the evening we spend stargazing. In the morning we asked when to go for sunrise and they told us the wrong time, so when we reached the top of the hill the sun was already out. The view was not so great with wind turbines and a fence. The breakfast was nice, contains a cereal pudding, toast with very sweet jam, fruits, biscuits and tea. They provide a bottle water each but you can ask for more. The camels get to walk 'free' at night with their front legs tied. They seem to look well looked after.

What an experience. Slept right under the stars and made diner in the sand of the dune. The camel right was pleasant. They let you ride the camel yourself and even let the camels run for a bit. The camels seemed to be looked after well, even though they did have a nose ring to which the rope was attached. We asked for an explanation and they replied that it is the only way to tame a camel. The environment was clean, did not see plastic or dirt. We also saw no road or any signs of other people during the camel ride. We did see some wind turbines. Manu was a really nice guide who made a lot of jokes. The camel guide Fota was very caring and could make the craziest sounds with his mouth to guide the camels! The food was really good, freshly cooked on a campfire. We even made our own chapati! We slept in sand dunes, we saw some other people in the dunes but they were far away, and we didn’t hear them or see them from our sleeping spot. Just one warning: there are some dogs at night at the camp, one really scared me as it was right next to me when I opened my eyes. But they are shy and will run away immediately if you make a sound. All in all an experience we’ll never forget!!!

Tour was amazing and well organised. Naru pick us up at our hostel and drove us to the meeting point where we onboarded on our 3 camels: pineapple, King Kong and Al Pacino. After 1,5 hours of camel riding, we arrived at our final destination, where Sambu cooked us an amazing dinner. Not only it was delicious, but it allai rapide my became a traditional Indian cooking class. Sunset was amazing and as Sambu likes to say it, it’s a not a Michelin star restaurant, it is a multi star michelin restaurant. We were serrounded by the Milky Way and it was simply amazing to share this moment with Sarah Travels. Highly recommend!
