Sum is vast and starkly beautiful....and hugely overcrowded - not so at the Prince Desert Camp though. The owner has ensured that you get the serenity you crave and owns the land for some distance around the camp.
We came to get away from everything and have a simple night in the desert. I cannot commend the staff at the Prince Desert Camp enough for making our dream come true. The work they put in to catering to our needs and their kindness and attention to detail was remarkable.
We arrived in the late afternoon, enjoying the use of one of the spacious, elegant tents. The interior was sumptuous, warm colours and plenty of space, including a well equipped bathroom. We were not to stay in this tent though...
First a walk in the dunes, I spent some time watching a beetle make slow progress across the sand as the sun made it's fiery path beyond the horizon. A fire was lit in a large pit down in the camp, and we made ourselves comfortable in chairs, drinks were brought and a delicious variety of food was offered, more than I could have possibly eaten. The dancing and singing began, for a while we lost ourselves in the dance of the flames that mirrored the undulating movements of the dancer, the sounds of traditional Rajasthan filling the night air.
Later, when the fire died down, we followed one of the staff up into the dunes, overlooking the camp. This was our particular request, to sleep in the dunes, away from all for the night. A fire was ready, the small tent very comfortable and exactly what we wanted and the bed deep and warm. We ended our day by the fire, alone and not a soul to be heard or seen. It was an unforgettable night.
