Very poor service. We are visited this place in Diwali 2021 and They are claiming everything on their site but while visiting nothing is real. They are not able to provide hot water for bath, not providing proper food. Same menu for all the day. They have excuse for each and every complaint. So do not visit this place in Jaisalmer. In fact suggesting to book good hotel and then visit desert only for Camel ride and camp purpose

Karni desert camp best desert camp. Make sure you visit either early or in late afternoon. The color of the stones really feels like gold when the sun rays falls on it. Hence the name "SONE KA KILLA"/GOLDEN FORT. Keep ample time in hand to visit every corner of the fort. It is the 2nd largest fort in Asia. And one of the very few living forts in the world. 1/4 of the city population lives in the fort. Must take a guide to know the minute details. They charge 100 post covid. No Covid protocol followed!! Don't visit if you are not vaccinated. Rajasthan people are not wearing masks.. But camping was a great experience..

Jaisalmer fort is one of the few forts in the world where there is a mini city within its walls. there are a lot of old havelis and restaurants as well located within the fort. We had hired a guide who explained the history of the place as well as visits to the Jain temples located inside and the different view points. Its best to visit the fort by 8-830 in the morning as its less crowded. nice place to see overall. Campaign was a great experience of our trip it was great to do in thar desert it was completely different from dubai it was great fun . Thanks to karni desert camp for all services..

Only fort in India where people still resides which is itself a royal feeling. The Jaisalmer Fort is huge with marvellous cravings on it, one of my favourite forts so far. To know about the living of the people residing inside of the fort was truly an amazing experience. There are few viewpoints and several Jain temples you can visit, plus there are ample numbers of shops almost to every door from where you can buy souvenirs. The only thing I didn’t like was that after seeing the visitors/tourist the guides jump on you like anything which is quite annoying. Camping was best experience of our trip as we booked karni camp with our family. Best part of karni desert camp was it's closed to desert so we go by walk . It was our best adventure of desert..

Jaisalmer fort is one of the two living forts in the world and the only one in India. A big chunk of the city's population lives in the fort and there are also bed and breakfast options available if you want to stay in the fort. There are also a lot of shops inside. Two wheelers and autos can go inside but cars have to be parked outside. It gets crowded in the afternoon but has a nice ambiance in the evening. The view from roof tops of the fort is quite nice to see the whole golden City . Sam sand dunes was a great experience of my trip we stayed at karni desert camp with jeep safari . Best of my trip ...

Karni desert camp is best desert camp in sam sand dunes. The dramatic and romantic desert fortress of Jaisalmer is an exotic city in Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. "The Golden City" rose to prominence as a result of its position on camel trade routes. It's now most famous for the 12th-century fort and ornate "Havelis," fine merchant-built houses and pavilions in the city’s mediaeval lanes. The surrounding Desert National Park offers opportunities to observe blackbucks, desert foxes and chinkaras amid the rolling dunes, rugged crags and waterholes.best part of camp was its near to dunes so we take walk in morning.
