Dear Guest, We are really happy to see your wonderful review.. Kindly note that we have arranged a private program for you, so that you will be safe as you know that now you need to carry Covid negative certificate on your departure. This is the reason we have suggested for an exclusive basis. The other family who joined were also booker on exclusive basis on other Jeep and even the table arrangements were done on lieu with Covid measures. In regards to camek riding there were 2 camels and one was exclusively for you and you could have done as much time you needed. We are really sorry if you couldn't do little more. If you would have asked the Camel man would have taken you for more rounds. Once again thank you so much for all your appreciation. We wish you good luck.
