Rumi's Guest House and Rumi's Desert Camp

Allow me to introduce myself. I am a desert boy, a simple person who hails from a small village nestled in the heart of the majestic Great Thar Desert. Growing up, I embraced the humble life of a camel driver, having my very own loyal companion in the form of a camel. In this arid land, water is scarce, but the people are incredibly warm-hearted and hospitable.

Life in my village was devoid of modern amenities such as education and electricity. It was a secluded existence, blissfully unaware of the happenings in the outside world. However, I found solace in this simplicity and developed an intimate understanding of the Great Thar Desert, honing my knowledge through years of firsthand experience. Even as a child, I worked with tourists, accompanying them on camel safaris and immersing myself in their culture. It was amidst the vastness of the desert that I grew, learning from and alongside these curious visitors.

Now, as I reflect on my journey, I yearn to expand my horizons further. I deeply desire to learn English, as it would open up a multitude of opportunities for me. To achieve this goal, I seek the guidance of a kind-hearted volunteer who can share their knowledge and teach me this invaluable language.

While my roots lie in the desert, I have splendid property situated in a renowned area of the city. This location offers convenient access to various amenities, making it an ideal choice for both corporate and leisure travelers seeking to explore the city's vibrant offerings. With its proximity to popular tourist destinations, this property ensures that guests can easily immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of the city's culture and attractions.

My stay was great, Ali is a very flexible and calm person, the activities were very easy and I had enough free time to visit or rest in the day, they provided me with 3 meals everyday, we went to visit the desert camp, Ali dropped me off to the train station at the end of my stay and he was also willing to pick me up when I arrive but I arrive unannounced haha (my mistake).
The place has really good location, you can go walking to the most of the tourist places, they gave me a private room, socomfy.
Happy for the decision to do my first volunteering here, thanks a lot and hope to see u again

It was an awesome experience to the Rumi’s Guest house! The owner Ali is very kind and helpful. He picked me up at the train station and helped me to feel like at home for all the time I’ve been there. The hostel room was perfect and foods were very nice everytime. I enjoyed the painting and decorating the guest house, especially the two rooftops with the view on the city. Doing this project helped me to know more about Jaisalmer and the rajasthani culture. The location of the guest house is close to the center and the fort (10 min by walk)! Best wishes for the future Ali, thank you very much

I had a great time in Jaisalmer with Ali. His hotel was super comfy, I had a big nice room to myself.
Ali picked me up at the train station and I basically enjoyed Jaisalmer and the desert tour.
As it's out of season, there was no work, so I was free to go around all or just relax.
Thanks Ali, for giving me the opportunity of getting to know Jaisalmer and Rajasthan food.
