We recently visited the Kafila desert camp for a day with family and the stay was an awesome experience here . The staffs were very friendly . They started with a camel Safari with hi tea at the sand dunes while viewing the beautiful sunset and while returning back there were arrangements of the cultural activities of local people meanwhile serving us awesome starters side by side .. The food was very delicious and my kids enjoyed every bit of the place .. While checking out they even gifted a Rajasthani toy which was again a nice gesture .. Awesome start to the New year .Would highly recommend for this experience ..

The property is excellent. We enjoyed staying in the Tent. All the arrangements were awesome. The staff is very well cultured and polite. Got to taste authentic Rajasthani food which was very tasty and hygienic. They managed the Camel ride and cultural event very well. Enjoy staying at Kafila Desert Camp.

The camp was an absolute treat for our quest of desert experience! We felt safe! The hospitality was the most welcoming and truly appreciative! Mool Singh Bhaiya along with Deepika and Angel were very nice and made our day more special by arranging a small celebration with cake, candle, folk dancers and musicians! They all gave us the rich experience! The jeep drive to the sand dunes for the camel ride (Mogat Sahib helped us gracefully to have a pleasant camel ride). The snacks served during cultural event, the traditional Rajasthani dinner and breakfast were delicious and very attractive! The tent stay was luxurious and comfortable! Thanks for the pleasant experience!! The tea served in the sand dunes with musicians there was delightful and memorable too!

am a frequent travelller, and during my journey and stay I get to meet lot of people , know about their culture, food , local treasures and ofcourse the hospitality of the staff In hotels. staying in Kafila Deset camp has been "the best" experience so far. Jaisalmer is all about mehmannawazi and Kafila lives up to it. The ambience of the place was out of the world, the tents were huge with all comfort, the cultural program every evening was great , service was top notch and the food was the best I have eaten so far in any place. The staff goes out of the way to ensure your comfort. Deva , moolsingh, kundan, Ibrahim, Madhav, Chef Rajesh made sure we had the best time. also want to thank Dipika for making out stay very comfortable and above all Paramjeet for taking care of us from the time we walked in to check out. He has definitely raised the bar in the hospitality industry. Thank you Kafila and team for giving me one of the best experiences. I would strongly recommend eveyone to stay in Kafila atleast once in ur life time. This is not to be missed at all and you will thank me .

Owned and operated by locals, this is one of the finest dessert camps I have experience in the Jaisalmer area - good food, the dessert dunes, camel ride and evening folk performances. Great service! They did their best to make you feel at home. One can Experience the hospitality of locals welcoming you to their own home and culture . Thanks to Paramjeet and Madhav-ji for the lovely experience my family had.

Nice experience - the desert, our people, livelihood and lifestyle - humbling. Great experience @ Tanot Mata mandir. Camel ride on Jani with Mooghat & Khairdil in the lead was extraordinary. God bless our country.

A true desert experience, apart from the much loved air-conditioning. Moola and the team are super helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I loved riding on a camel through the desert to enjoy a beautiful sunset and tea in the sand dunes. The food is really good and the cultural entertainment is a really nice touch too.
