We went to Bikaner at the start of the winter , ideal time to visit the city. Choice of Umaid safari was more of compulsion as very few good hotels were available at that time.

It is a very good place to stay which is full of activities. If you are expecting sand dunes in Bikaner, then u will be disappointed. Otherwise, camel safari, Rajasthani folk music and dance, food and ambiance of the Umaid Safaris & Desert Lodge will not disappoint you. A place, far from city's hustle and bustle and must visit.

Stayed there for a day in November 2016. The experience was amazing. The food there is very tasty. The people are very cordial and helpful. Took a tent and the experience was new for a city dweller like me. The bonfire, the local folk songs, talking to the singers and knowing more about Bikaner and Rajasthan - everything was amazing....

I took this camel tour as part of a tour package bought in Delhi, so had no idea about logistics. This was a wonderful experience, though I would say the lodge and dinner were the highlights moreso than the camel ride, though that was fun as well. Prim (sp?), the host from Nepal, is an absolute star and so lovely...
