Experience the magic and beauty of the dunes of India's Great Thar Desert at Manvar Desert Camp, located directly between the cities of Jodhpur and Jaisalmer. Authentic tented suites, colorful cultural excursions and unforgettable afternoons of desert exploration await visitors. The tented camp experience harkens back to the days of colonial India, when western eyes first set sight on these unknown lands. Now the camps take adventurers off the beaten path and into remote places where nature still reigns supreme, and only a lucky few have the privilege to immerse themselves in its wonders.
