“OASIS OSIYAN”… is the base camp at Osian (62 KM from Jodhpur). Osian is situated at the beginning of the Great Thar Desert. Camel Safaris into the desert are conducted from here. Osian is enroute if you are driving from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer / Bikaner / Khimsar / Nagaur or vice versa. Osian (Osiyan) is famous for its Hindu and Jain temples dating back from the 8th to the 11th centuries. Osiyan was once a thriving business centre being a stop over on the silk route between Delhi and the Middle East.
After having spent over two decades working for various organizations, specializing in the business of showing the great Indian state of Rajasthan to the visiting tourists, Raj Bakshi’s love for camping and adventure made him venture out on his own and… Safari Camp Osiyan was created.
Out on a Safari and living under canvas. The passion for camping and adventure resulted in the formation of a mobile camping outfit. We specialize in Deluxe Camel Safaris, catering to groups as well as to the needs of the individual traveler. An effort has been made to take the tourist “OFF THE BEATEN TRACK”… Itineraries have been meticulously designed to give a blend of the countryside and the cities with its Forts and Palaces. The option of venturing into the country and the interiors gives the tourist a chance of interacting and mingling directly with different tribes. These are the hard and rugged people of Rajasthan braving the odds of the harsh desert with a smile… always happy to welcome guests to their homes.
