They have totally 14 tents which are large in size. The tents have proper washroom with seprate bathing area and aircon facilities. Lot of focus on minor things in the tents. The people there are sweet, efficient and humble. When you visit they welcome you with drums and a welcome drink which is heartening. Food is fresh and cuisine totally local and delicious. They make anything as per request. The jeep ride offered by them to see the sunset in the dunes was lovely. The whole place is beautifully lit up at nights with a 2 hour cultural show ( dance, music and quiz). Service is unbelievably efficient and prompt. Hospitality great with a modern/ rustic feel. They even gave us a parting gift. Worth visiting.

We stayed at the Kafila Desert Camp for a night. The stay was amazing.. the tents were spacious and clean. The Food was just fabulous. Great service too. The owner Mr. Jaswant Singh Rathore was very warm and friendly and attended to our every need. We got unlimited tea/ coffee and water at the camp..very rare to find in any 5 star too....They had arranged a camel safari to a private dune with tea and biscuits overlooking the sunset..and a cultural show with unlimited starters and a buffet dinner. It was just fantastic. 5 stars to this place.

We visited kafila after Diwali in 2019. The weather was so good. One look at the tents from inside made us very happy about the choice we had made. The bed was comfortable. The toiletries were of good quality. And the food was sumptuous. Jaswant ji is an amazing host. He would not let any of our requests down. There are many tents out there. But I think Kafila offers the best of Thar.

The tents are very comfortable and spacious. Rest anything you need is taken care of very well esp. by the owner of the tent JASWANT SINGH. I made a request for iron and he got it arranged from somewhere immediately. Cultural programme was fun and entertaining. Overall it was a fun evening with delicious food and snacks served. Highly recommended esp if you travelling with kids.
