If you are a nature lover and are on a tour to the western part of India, Jaisalmer, then do not be disappointed that you will miss out on nature. Although deserts mean tough or less life, it is not nil. Our field guide Radheshyam Bishnoi will try his best to satisfy your birding interest. He is a self-taught naturalist and conservationist with vast experience spotting wildlife in desert areas. He knows other places besides Desert National Park with good potential. So far, the below birds, mammals and reptiles have been recorded by local naturalists in past seasons.
This is a combination of critically endangered species like The Great Indian Bustard, common birds and the rarest desert fox sightings!
To enjoy the birding and wildlife, one needs two nights extra. During this time, we will organize safaris in Desert National Park and other important areas to cover the maximum. The best time is from October to February.
