Forum > Travel > Jaisalmer Wildlife and tourism are going hand in hand

Posted by Pratap Singh on April 18, 2016

 
Since 2010 the government of Rajasthan has taken some actions to promote eco tourism in many cities which are famous for their wildlife like Ranthambore and now the government have also declared national parks as eco-sensitive zones which means that one can't construct permanent accommodation in jungle area.

This policy isn't just for national parks with green forest but also for the sand dunes of Jaisalmer which after this decision has implemented new ideas to promote tourism with innovative ideas. So in this post I would love to share a view of eco tourism of Jaisalmer which is attracting many to visit the sand dunes of Sam from October to March every year.

1. Desert Camps - More the 100 camps have been set in Sam region and not just Swiss tents, here we have small restaurants offering local food, musical program from local dancers and bonfire events. All those events are mostly seen in Jungle camps and now are available in desert camps too. A wise example is to check this site on Jaisalmer Desert Camps and Jaisalmer Desert Tents at Sam which offer desert camp accommodation, nice dinner and an awesome musical evening at Sam sand dunes.

Suggested site to view more on desert camping in Sam sand dunes, Jaisalmer is Jaisalmer desert tent, Dangri Jaisalmer desert camp and Khiri desert camp.

2. Desert Safari - Well as you have jungle safari in national parks we have desert safari in desert dune areas. One can either enjoy a 30 mins to 2 hour camel safari or an hour ride in Jeep safari. Plus if you are one of those travelers who love to walk then a trekking trip to the sand dunes will be a new experience.

3. Nearby attractions - Well Sam is just 45 kms away from Jaisalmer and I must say that the road conditions here are excellent. So one can either explore many tourist spots of Jaisalmer like Golden fort, Gadisar lake or visit the haunted city of Khuldhara which is in between Sam and Jaisalmer.

4. Best time to visit Sam - From the months of April to September the weather is very hot in Sam as it touches 55 and there are also some sand storms which no travelers wants to experience. So October to March are perfect for a Jaisalmer holiday.

For more information one can contact local desert camps sites as they can offer more details which one needs if they are planning to spend a holiday in Sam & Jaisalmer.
