We stayed at Prince Desert Camp at Sam Dunes. The entire arrangement, pick up from the station and drop back to Jaisalmer was perfect. The camp is secluded and away from the noisier part of Sam. The arrangements and the entertainment were very good.

Jeep safari in the desert is a must. It was amazing. Camel safari and camel cart safari was also good but Jeep safari was best
