Desert Safari

This was our first desert safari and our first camel ride and while we are at it let's state the conclusion first "It was a lot of fun, but it hurts one's a*s a lot".

Our desert safari was organized by Vino desert safari and our travel partners were a very lively couple Robert and Nekane from Spain. We started with four camels, three for riding and one for pulling the cart that was loaded with supplies for two days. We were really impressed by the punctuality and the completeness of their services. Our guide was Mr. Harphul Singh and others like Mr. Sampat (the sensible), Mr. Annaram (the joker) and Mr. Rameshwar (the serious one).

Mr. Harphul and Anna ram ji had some sense of humor (good or bad is debatable) that kept us laughing. They made good food (but very spicy) and chai for us right in the middle of the desert.

It was a chance for us to see the desert up close, scanty vegetation, antelopes, vultures, sand dunes and desert life. Once in a while our camel seemed to be interested in getting a back scratch so we had to protect ourselves from the thorny trees that they would brush against. But, desert does not have only thorns to offer, one can enjoy tangy desert apples, small berries, that can be found pretty much everywhere.
