    Description

    Hello, I am Jalam!

    I was born in the Thar Desert. The traditional desert life is my background. I grew up in a farm between camels helping my family with the traditional desert tasks: growing up vegetables and feeding our lovely animals.

    I always was fascinated with the Safari live, being able to meet visitors and to show them our culture, our traditions, our wild life, our beautiful views, our Thar Desert. The Thar desert is also known as the Great Indian desert. It is located in the Indian subcontinent. It is a dry arid region located to the northwest of Aravali hills. It covers the western Rajasthan and is the natural boundary between India and Pakistan.

    Since I was a child I have been busy in the Safari activities as a jeep driver, as a guide, in the marketing tasks, ... Now I am running my own company. We offer Camel Safari, Hotel and Restaurant services in Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer is a town located in Thar Desert. The golden city is characterized by its yellowish brown stone buildings. The work on the walls of the historical monuments represents the powerful ancient times. The forts and palaces, ornamented with artistic works, reflect the Indian architectural style.

    Our company offers desert camel rides tent desert camp; we are known for excellent services and warm hospitality. The people here believe that every traveler who joins them should get the best of their service and hospitality. They believe in turning travellers to lifelong friends and wish that their experience at Jaisalmer should be conserved in their heart as an alluring memory for a lifetime.

We need people to help us with this task and managing the social networks- it's essential for our business to function.
