We booked the place through thrillophilia and the camp location provided by them was not accurate. The camp is big enough, has swimming pool and has cottages and tents. Cottage is really spacious, has a king bed, a sit-out and decent toilet. Camp has arranged for camel safari and jeep safari. I would recommend to opt for camel safari in the evening and jeep safari early morning. Both safari’s were good experience, and it is worthwhile spending some time in the sand dunes. The early morning tea in the desert sand dunes is wonderful. The cultural program in the evening arranged by camp is worth spending time. Breakfast menu needs to revamped with more variety dishes. We also experienced rain and heavy wind during our stay in th enight, which seems to be a rare event in that location. Overall good experience and I would recommend this place for a night stay and desert experience.

This stay was so well planned and well arranged for us by the team. We were a group of 4 friends, and we loved the quality of the tents, and especially loved the camel ride which we got with the help of the manager, Prasanth.

There was a swimming pool right in the middle of a desert. That had to be the best part about this campsite. The rooms were not up to the mark, but not very bad either. One time experience is a must

What an amazing tour really!!! Who would have imagined a swimming pool in midst of a desert. The stay was amazing, from food to cleanliness, as well as the staff. All the rajasthani fold music and dance they perform here made it all so fun.

Sam is a village situated west of the Jaisalmer city at a distance of 45km. The sand dunes located at this village are one of the exquisite tourist locations in the center of Thar Desert. Some of the dunes are as high as 30 to 60 meters and extend over a length of 2 Km.
Desert Safari in Jaisalmer is a pulsating activity of riding a camel for a period of 5 – 6 hours spread over two sessions, generally, one in the early morning followed by an interval/ recess during afternoons and a second trip in the evening. For the first-timers, it may appear bumpy in the beginning but is enjoyable overall.
The tour takes visitors through far-flung areas of the desert, across native settlements, Kuldhara- a deserted village, national park, an oasis, and the alluring sunrise and sunset. Desert Safari on 4X4 open-top Jeep is much more comfortable and swifter than the camel ride.
It is one of the most preferred types of safari. The dunes are usually at their optimum during sunrise (4 am – 6 am) and sunset (4 pm – 7 pm). The glittering golden sands and breathtaking beauty of nature will entice the tourists and provide a perfect backdrop to capture a stunning visual of the escapade.
