Due to time constraints I only did a 1 night safari into the desert, only 60 miles from Pakinstan border in the Thari Desert. Great experience but not a fan of riding camels, very painful. Great bunch on safari with 2 From Australia (Tazmania), 1 girl from Netherlands, 1 girl from China, 1 guy from Belgium, another from Spain and me. Quite the conversations while sitting around the camp fire.
Went to Jaisalmer specifically for the camel safari but the fort was amazing. Jaisalmer is a "living fort" as people live and have shops within its walls. Stayed at guesthouse Surja which had an amazing view of the man made lake and sunrise. Jaisalmer was definitely my favorite place in India on this trip.
