It is a very good place to stay which is full of activities. If you are expecting sand dunes in Bikaner, then u will be disappointed. Otherwise, camel safari, Rajasthani folk music and dance, food and ambiance of the Umaid Safaris & Desert Lodge will not disappoint you. A place, far from city's hustle and bustle and must visit.

Stayed there for a day in November 2016. The experience was amazing. The food there is very tasty. The people are very cordial and helpful. Took a tent and the experience was new for a city dweller like me. The bonfire, the local folk songs, talking to the singers and knowing more about Bikaner and Rajasthan - everything was amazing....

I took this camel tour as part of a tour package bought in Delhi, so had no idea about logistics. This was a wonderful experience, though I would say the lodge and dinner were the highlights moreso than the camel ride, though that was fun as well.

Very bad choice for stay. Location is quite hard to find out. The alpine tents they provide are really small. They call you and give you a heads up regarding the alpine tents but there will be a basic expectation when you spend 1000 rs for a stay which is not met. For an upgrade you have to pay 1000...
