Community impact of the camel safari industry in Jaisalmar, Rajasthan
Abstract The isolated desert city of Jaisalmar (Rajasthan, north-west India) now receives over 200 000 visitors per year, mainly as the result of the promotion of camel safaris to the Thar desert. Jaisalmar has a camel surplus because of mechanized farming, with animals redeployed into the safari business. Considerable profits are generated for camel owners and safari operators but these are directly returned to the local community either to finance a larger family or to buy more camels. This industry now controls the Jaisalmar economy but poor regulation threatens its sustainability with worrying implications for employment and environmental management.
