Peaceful stay in koobas (huts).

Posted 4 Nov, 2016

We had a pleasant and comfortable stay. The owner of the resort Mr. Dhanraj is very cheerful and helpful. He personally takes care of everybody staying in his resort. The resort gives a nice experience of staying in desert. Food and ambience of the resort is perfect. The safaris arranged by them were good and we could see lot of wild asses and variety of birds. In the evening safari we saw the sunset. We also saw salt making in the Rann. I would recommend this resort to anybody going to little rann of Kutch. It is a value for money resort.

Overall, had a wonderful experience

Posted 26 Jul, 2015

You'll admiration breadth you are if you ability the apple of Zainabad. You go down a lane and acquisition yourself in a amazing altar of reconditioned and hospitality. You break in a acceptable hut with a acceptable simple Bath and a beat bench outside. Perhaps the aghast reviewers accepted something like a artificial resort or hotel. But you're in a affected on the bend of the Rann: a affected with all the actual best that money cannot buy The adaptation is simple but so candied you can't advise smiling: a alluringly busy hut with a simple activity Bath and shower, with copse aerial to accumulate you cool There's an accessible sitting and dining breadth area the aliment is served and eaten - actual acceptable veggie, ambrosial or balmy to taste. It's as well breadth we've met some of the a lot of absorbing humans from all walks of life And again there are the safaris. The affected has absolutely astonishingly accomplished driver/guides who yield you out to see the wildlife on the branch and on the salt-flats. Even for us ignoramuses, it was a absolutely cliffhanging experience, absolutely altered and so abundant richer than a appointment to the Great Rann and the White Rann But anybody who has anytime backward there will acquaint you that the affection and body of the abode is the owner, Dhanraj Malik. You will never accept a added knowledgeable. Careful host. His ancestors has been in Zainabad for centuries and are admired and admired throughout the region. We watched him getting so accessible with people's biking arrangements, allowance them get to bus stations, allowance with cars, and so anxious of their alone needs. The aggregation of humans who plan for him are agitating as well Stay there and you feel you've abutting a rather absolute club, a club breadth you ability acquisition a apple acclaimed and actual attenuate owl has taken to sleeping alfresco your hut Good to know:. It's account blockage at atomic two nights, and apparently three to fit in the two altered safaris Bring something balmy to abrasion in the evening, at atomic until mid February Dhanraj Malik can align ancillary trips to the Sun Temple at Modhera, the adjacent stepwell, and of beforehand to Bhuj To get there:. The affected is 100 km east of Ahmedabad. Two and a bisected hours by car, or buzz Dhanraj Malik and he will admonish on busses and align to accept you met Or yield a alternation to Viramgam (overnight alternation from Mumbai, or 6 hour day train. Again, alarm in beforehand and they'll appear and aggregate you.

Nice for One time

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

Stayed at Desert Coursers for 2 nights. Since I am a birder I found this place from that point to be reasonably good as there was lot of bird activity inside the resort it self. Rooms are not very good specially the bathrooms, as if the floor has not been cleaned for years and there was water leaking from the taps. Food is okay but served cold most of the times with almost same menu every time. Good thing was the owner accompanied us to the first safari himself and for the next day early morning safari they took us on time to the lake where we could see all the water birds Flamingoes, Pelicans etc. Overall a nice experience.

Desert Coursers is basically a birding destination. People go there for birding. Dhanraj Malik of the Desert Coursers provide the best safaris, best drivers and the best guides. The guides are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. They are willing to go the extra mile. Overall, superb

Good food

Posted 5 Jan, 2012

As I put my comments on Facebook, that morning, its not very often that you get the luxury of "...waking up to the symphony of cock a doodle do, morning prayers from distant mosque, donkey brays and a cacophony of massive variety of birds and chirping squirrels." We reached this place in the forenoon, and before day end, the thought crossed my mind that we have got more than our money's worth already. This is the place to be if you are a serious wildlife enthusiast. But be careful, and Mrs. Malik, the owner's wife will justly warn you too, of cacophonous tourists sharing the jeep to safari - they could and would scare asses away !!
