What a fabulous stay! If you are after an insight into family life with no frills and are happy with clean rooms, quirky plumbing and good home cooking this is the place for you. We were greeted so warmly by the family who invited us into their home for tea and snacks. After a tiring and stressful journey this was a welcomed surprise.
After hanging out with other travellers in the guesthouse we decided to take one of their camel safaris as Jitsu is a zoologist and offered more than just a camel ride. He took just the two of us out and showed us the nature and wildlife in the area and we really had the feeling we were off the beaten track. What made the trip more special was that Jitsu supports the local villages who provide the camels and the tours, so we know our money was also being reinvested back into a village.
The camel tour guide took care of us from start to finish, two women in the desert with a guide sounds daunting but we felt safe and the element of adventure was magical.
Jitsu, his family and the camel safari team really added to our incredible experience of India. If you do not expect hair dryers, room service etc this place is for you!
