This is a great spot to come to for a few days. Large, beautiful clean rooms, great food, helpful staff and they were just finishing up the new pool when I was there that looked really inviting. The owner will arrange camel safari in the desert for you. A great experience you should not miss.

I saw no signs of animal cruelty where we were taken and all the camels were sat down resting with their individual owners. I understand many of the families here have their own camel which becomes their only source of income. The government initiatives should focus on educating the local people on how to keep their camels strong and healthy whilst still being able ...
... us close to the Pakistan border, which added an element of intrigue. It was great fun not only to ride the beasts, but also to frolic in the sand! Trying to capture it on camera, while bouncing on a camel, is a challenge...
