Having returned back home, my wife and I must congratulate Nature Safaris for the smoothness of our entire trip. And even if there was a minor inconvenience - which is quite normal to occur in such a complicated, month-long tour - every effort was made to solve this immediately.
Perhaps the only thing to complain about was the quality of the birding guide in Desert National Park. The man hardly spoke a word of English and knew only the more striking birds like Egyptian vulture, green bee-eater and black drongo. But when it came to smaller, dull birds like lark species, he could just say: many, meaning there were too many to know them all. So, that was not much of a help. Moreover, as the camel cart also followed a track that could easily be driven by the Innova, we might have seen the birds in a much more comfortable way.
Anyway, all of our three drivers were very helpful, accommodation was excellent - except for Royal Desert Camp in Sam Sand Dunes. Yet, this is my own mistake as I shouldn't have requested for it in the first place.
We wish to thank both of you and please, do thank all drivers and co-operators from our behalf for a wonderful tour. And if we are making plans to visit India again in the future, we will certainly contact you again.
