Another beautiful night's sleep at Victoria Hotel – this place has just been fantastic and worth every penny over our normal budget – in fact if we could have this hotel transported all over India for us we would be VERY happy!

Next morning at 6 am our camel safari started, first towards the desert by jeep where ...
