It is a great deal. Beautiful place to stay. Owner Mr. Mahaveer is very humble and helpful person. Food was tasty & ample. The provided unlimited mineral water for us as and when required. Camel safari was also good & enjoyable. We enjoyed true Rajasthani folk cultural program at night. It was diwali on that particular day. They had arranged some in-house fireworks. Dark starlit sky, campfire, fireworks, folk music & wines - the whole ambiance was ecstatic. Overall a very good & comfortable stay. Only thing I would like to remind you that the region where the camp is located is named Osiyan. Here, you won't find complete desert like Jaisalmer. It is more like a terrain covered with thorny bush. Sand dunes are limited though the camel will take you to a nearby one. But, it's not a fault of owner. You will get compensated with their warm & humble hospitality.

Rajasthan > Jodhpur > Osian Desert > Safari Camp > Camel Safari When I heard of Camel Safari Activity in Thrillophilia first thought which came into my mind was of Sand Dunes & Sunset. Thrillophilia arranged the activity to such an extent that it was like dream became reality. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset upon reaching the summit of our 30 minutes hip-hop Camel Ride. An experienced guide accompanied us explaining the flora and fauna of the desert along the ride and he took few pictures also to memorize this event. Everything was perfect from the evening sun to the delicious meal that one can enjoy afterwards at the camp (at extra cost).

My mom and I really enjoyed this camel ride. The guide, Dhanna was fantastic and took us back to his place for a home cooked meal made by his wife. It was so peaceful riding the camels in the Thar desert to disappear from the hustle and bustle of the India cities. We couldn't have loved the tour any more. Absolutely fantastic!

A really great time! We very much enjoyed the cultural experience in the local village. We also took a jeep safari which showed the local wildlife; our guide Minaj was sweet, friendly and took extra time to be sure we really enjoyed it. Can't wait to come again! The Bishnoi people were inviting and helpful, and the sweet and quiet time in desert was a great reprieve from the cities. We wish them well and to see again.
