About
Our safari is of one day. We pick you up and take you to the our fixed adventure place, dunes owned by us at a distance of about 25 kms from Bikaner, on camels and camel carts. The ships of desert, Camels, are marvelous creatures who will transport our baggage, and enable us to discover some of the beautiful and relatively unexplored regions of Rajasthan (India). There are no hard and fast rules regarding your safari as each expedition is unique in itself. En route you and your friends or family are the only ones for miles around the starting and finishing point. We have fixed departure times at 8 AM and fixed end time at 7:30 PM.

I attended the Bikaner Camel Festival and was utterly enchanted by the vibrant tapestry of Rajasthani culture it showcased. The mesmerizing camel parades, adorned in colorful attire, were a visual feast. The folk music and dance performances transported me to another era, and the aroma of traditional Rajasthani cuisine lingered in the air. The festival's energy was infectious, and locals warmly welcomed visitors. This year the festival is scheduled for 13th and 14th January 2024. Bikaner Camel Festival is a must-attend for anyone seeking an authentic glimpse into the rich cultural heritage of Rajasthan.

Bikaner Camel Safari Day Tours is ride of lifetime. The camels are well trained and you would never feel at risk while travelling. It is funny and bumpy ride available only in Rajasthan in entire India. Do take care in case you are travelling in month on May - June as heat can be unbearable. Overall a great fun ride. looking forward to come back soon.

We went for 1 day and 1 night desert safari with them. The camel men are really nice and we were well treated by them as promised. We have seen lot of wild life.The experience of staying on sand dune in a starlit night is really incredible.We felt safe at all times.I highly recommend bikaner Camel Safari tours.

Wonderful ! Amazing ! Superb ! Words are not enough for this experience. I was wondering since long how is my safari going to be and it was perfect. A full day's adventure in dunes was incredible. Lively and untouched scenic beauty. On our way to destination, we encountered many desert animals not to mention, blue cow, deer, vultures and camels. Some clusters of desert houses with thatched mud roofs were splendid. Riding on camels and resting on camel cart was like day dreaming. Good Luck to all of you who wish to participate in this wonderful experience.

10 years after a quite nice first experience @ Vino Guest House / Vino Desert Safari, my wife made a second booking. We were looking forward to our stay and arrived on 12th November at Bikaner Railway Station, where Vino would pick us up. However, upon arrival, nobody was waiting for us. Therefor, we arranged our own transportation. When we saw Vino at the guesthouse he admitted to have forgotten about the pick-up, for which he appologized. We could however participate for the two-day safari the next day.
The safari turned out to be ok; a welcome relieve from the usual Indian hussle & bussle... but:
- For us, it was rather a trip on the countryside than a safari in the desert: we followed nothing but marked paths along fences, we were never far away from houses and regularly bumped upon motorized vehicles, of which some('s stereo) got loud!
- Not only meal stops but also our overnight camping spot was just outside one of the villages we passed, drawing curious locals to come and stare at us. As we hoped that this safari would give us a break of these situations, we got a bit disappointed here.
- Hoping for an overnight stay in complete silence? Think again, as you're still in India! We heared loud "music" playing in the distance until midnight or so, and microphone preachings starting from 4.
- Blankets are provided, but know that they're not particularly clean. A pillow would have been most welcome.
- (Most of) the guides were ok and did their job, without more (don't expect that they will tell you stories or something about the wildlife since their English is none-existing). One of the guides was a twelve-year old kid who had troubles enjoying the silence, enjoyed being "master" over the camels and loved making as much smoke as possible at the overnight camp fire. As the safari itself was already rather expensive, I didn't tip these guides. When I did want to thank them they intentionally ignored my extended hand. Although I tipped one (older) guide (I didn't get his name), who did speak English, was very friendly and had done his very best to satisfy us, I felt disrespected and left Bikaner in a rather sad mood.
- Vino himself was so kind to show us pictures of his son, who's a Bollywood-actor. Also he recorded a song, sung by himself, which he loved to let us hear. On the other hand he didn't show any interest in how we experienced our stay, nor did he make any effort to compensate the forgotten pick-up. In regard of our departure from Bikaner, he gave us directions to get to the railway station but in the end, at 11 pm we had to start walking and try to find a taxi ourselves.
- We didn't experience the atmosphere at the guest house particularly warm and welcoming. Food was ok without more, the rooms were cheap but in bad and (very) dirty condition. We were happy with the possibility of a late check-out though...

One of the most amazing things we did in India. You drive out of Bikaner to a small village and pick up the camels. Then you ride out into the Thar desert for a few hours before stopping for lunch. The guides prepare it for you there in the desert scrub, cooking a whole meal. Then you rest for a while in the shade because it is just too hot to be out in the middle of the day.
In the afternoon you ride for several more hours, pausing for the camels to drink at a small village. Then in the evening you arrive at a camp beneath picturesque sand dunes which the guides pitched already.
They prepare another delicious meal for you while you watch an amazing sunset in the desert. Then you can sit round a desert campfire, with the most amazing view of the night sky. You sleep under the stars which is magnificent and can watch another beautiful sunset in the morning.
Then you have breakfast and take a camel cart back to the village to get the transport back to Bikaner.
The camels are so fun to ride, and the guides are really friendly and often quite young. If the camel is quite mature and steady then you may be allowed to ride on your own. The length of time is really good because it is quite tough riding a camel for a long time in the heat, so many of our group rode in the cart towards the end.
You might see birds and antelope on the way, plus traditional rural life such as fields, cows and herds of goats. The goats are great because they have little jingly bells with a shepherd following them with his donkey, and the donkey always seems really shocked to see other people!
Also it depends what time you visit for whether the desert is barren or green. There was a surprising amount of greenery and scrub when we visited in September, but our guide said that it had appeared almost overnight only a few weeks before and on his last visit it was all bare.
Would definitely recommend this trip. It is genuinely authentic, spending a few days with really friendly local people on the edge of the wilderness, in a beautiful setting with magnificent animals.

I expected that the desert would be pale and barren but in fact its colourful and full of life! The people and wildlife in the desert are breathtaking. Colourful turbans and saris, cottage industries, peacocks, vultures, assortments of eagles and deers... I couldn't believe my eyes!

Surprisingly comfortable. A few hours od riding into the desert to watch the sunset over a few beers and the back to the hotel. Great adventure and is you don't want to ride on a camel yo can ride in a cart pulled by camels.

This shouldnt be missed at any cost if you are not going to Jaisalmer... It is available during Oct to March every year. Camel rides are not comfortable for elderly as it gives a lot of jerks. However, the scenary is just to be seen to believe. The sand dunes are massive and through them are beautiful pathways created by jeep tyres and camel foot. At a far away location you can seen small hamlets. The resorts around offer good food and to cap it all is the signature Rajasthani hospitality, I ama told Jaisalmer deserts are more mystifying. Plan it next time. Go - get it.
