no guide books, no cacophony-just tranquility, slowness and good companionship,
with kind generous hospitality. don't change it to much…
Having arranged many mobile camel safaris in the usual mainstream
and busy destinations we realized that a more exclusive destination
was missing from this fun experience. A location was sourced and what
better than on the first sand dune of the famous Thar Desert of Rajasthan.
With expansive views of the vast desert on one side and the intricate
temples of Osian on the other, this camp, the first of its kind in
India, offers easy access to the local desert villages. Venturing
out on camel one can meet the proud local tribes, the Bishnois and
Bhils, potters and weavers and shepherds in their natural surroundings,
not to mention the various varieties of desert wildlife such as bluebulls,
gazelles, foxes, peacocks and partridges to name but a few.
The nearby ancient village of Osian is legendary for it's mesmerizing
6th / 8th century temples, sand-dunes and diversity of Rajasthani
culture and tradition and Jodhpur, with its magnificent Meherangarh
Fort, is just 60 kms away.
Being a permanent structure we also have the additional bonus of a
refreshing swimming pool, a feat of architectural engineering in a
sand dune ! and the safari bar, a wonderful place to relax in the
evenings over a drink and cigar to the gentle strains of jazz music.
Once at the camp -nestled in the dunes your host Reggie Singh, grandson
of Maharaj Ratan Singh of Jodhpur will invite you for an evening of
cocktails, folk entertainment and a semi formal candle lit dinner.
