Located 6 kms from the resort in the midst of the wilderness surrounded by the sand dunes is the isolated splendor of the Manvar Tented Desert Camp. The beauty is breathtaking and the feeling of viewing a sunset in the midst of the sand dunes is hard to describe. The Manvar Desert Camp consists of 30 colourfully decorated, safari-style tents arranged in a semi-circle around a central ‘Durbar Hall’ (Courtiers' Hall). For those who seek a tad more privacy and the luxury of absolute solitude, there are 10 Luxury Tents situated about 400 meters away from the main camp.
Each of these tents is carefully placed for commanding views over the desert wilderness. They are very luxurious - more like mini-marquees with smart polished traditional camping-style teak furniture, rich jute rugs and lovely custom designed block-printed tent linings. Beds are large, can be arranged as single, double or twins, and have electric lamps on side tables that illuminate the tents effectively at night. Large windows have pull up flaps to allow light and fresh desert air through and permanent insect netting to keep out any unwelcome visitors. The attached tiled bathrooms have running hot and cold water, flush toilets and proper wash basins. Providing warmth on cold desert nights is an electric blower in each tent.
For those who seek a tad more privacy and the luxury of solitude, Manvar Camp offers 10 Luxury Tents situated about 200 metres from the main camp. Secluded from the rest of the guest groups, this exclusive clutch of tents allows you to experience the magic of the Thar desert in a special way. Not only do the Luxury Tents have larger air-conditioned tent bedrooms, they also have larger toilets. Each tent has two sit-outs and this Luxury tent group also has it's own dining tent.
The Manvar Private or Mobile Camp has its roots in the hunting trips of old when the erstwhile Thakurs and their kinsmen often went into the wild to hunt game. Sometimes, these hunting trips stretched for many days on end and so, the party always went well-equipped with tents, retainers, provisions et al. Today, while the hunting has ceased, the good old luxury caravan lives on, providing an unsurpassed experience of the desert. The Manvar Private Safari is the ideal way to travel for people who enjoy close proximity to the bush and wilderness and want to experience the desert of Rajasthan first hand while enjoying the creature comforts of a large, comfortable camp set up exclusively for them. Although this is a real bush safari we don’t skip on the amenities. The camps are designed for comfort featuring airy tents for two persons with proper cots and bedding, hot water and a ‘bathroom tent’ to boot. Gourmet meals are served around a cozy campfire against the backdrop of the sounds of the desert while the guest takes in the beautiful star studded night sky.
