  • Safari yurt camp is located 60 km from Nurata, the nearest town, at the border of sandy Kyzyl Kum Desert and Lake Aydarkul. The camp has 20 traditional nomad yurts. The place is very remote, in the middle of nowhere, and some tourists belive that the location leaves much to be desired. There’s not much to see out here except nondescript desert and a reservoir. In the immediate vicinity of the yurtcamp is nothing else to see, small bushes on all sides. But the place is good for camel rides. Safari camp is located pretty far from Aydarkul lake, so to get there one would need a car or a camel. 

    Tents are equipped with good mattresses and clean sheets with blankets. Some tents accommodate 2 people, some can accommodate more guests. Toilets, sinks and showers are in a separate building and are very modest. The dinner and breakfast is served in a separate nicely decorated brick building. Meals are quite good considering the location and facilities. 

    During your stay in Safari yurt camp you can enjoy camel riding, three meals a day, lunch-picnic on the Aydarkul lakeside and an evening before a campfire with folklore performances under the endless starry sky. You can also take a walk to a nearest village and get acquainted with the peculiarities of everyday life and culture of the locals. 

    If there are groups staying in the camp you could experience a noisy nights as people often organise discos that run well into the middle of the night. 

    Although there is not much to do in the vicinity, enjoying the sunset and a campfire with some local music should be quite enjoyable.

    We had fun with the camels and the campfire at night. The yurt was decent for the price, but the shower and bath areas desperately need maintenance. The food was edible but not big portions. The...

    I give the yurt camp a 2 to 3 starrating because it was disappointing to realise that only tourists ever sleep in yurts. I saw no sign of a nomadic life anywhere during my travels - of course I...

    We enjoyed a night (and evening) at the safari yurt camp. The place is clean, including toilets and the yurts more comfortable then expected with even a plug for charging your phone (no wifi though...

    The yurts are beautifully decorated and very comfortable, although the camp as a whole looks somewhat bleak - but then it is in the desert!

    Aidar yurt camp
    trip advisor rating
    Aidar yurt camp is another must for those travelling to Uzbekistan. A small camp of 10 yurts set 15-20 min ride from Aydarkul lake. Good location, decent facilities, tasty food, camel rides, national music performance, desert views, night sky and much more. Truly unforgettable experience
