About Musa Khan

Best Desert National Park Guide in Rajasthan

I strongly believe that support of local people is essential for wildlife conservation, particularly in large multiple-use landscapes. The Critically Endangered Great Indian Bustard, popularly known as Godawan in Rajasthan lives in a large landscape consisting of natural grassland, grazing areas and low-intensity cultivation.
In the last 35 years I have the privilege to visit the Thar desert and Desert National Park many times. I find the people are simple, friendly, and very cooperative.
Musa Khan is a native of Rajasthan, an avid birder and an enthusiastic nature guide. This young man has birded extensively in the Desert National Park for more than four years, and now considered as highly experienced Nature and Wildlife guide of the Park. I was told that recently he worked for six months with BNHS.
Musa is a skilled guide and knows the different habitats of the desert. He ensures that everyone in the group observes the birds without disturbing them. He has the local knowledge of certain species.
His passion for Nature has taken him to the most remote places in the desert, always looking for the opportunity to add a new bird on his desert life list.
He is friendly and courteous all the time, always willing to help around and make you feel welcome. He is an honest man, you can easily leave your belongings with him.
He has also learning the ethics of wildlife watching and does not allow any disturbance to wildlife.
I wish him success and hope that he will widely spread the message of conservation.
