The Safari Company called "Camel Man" was started by Vijay Singh Rathore in the year 1983.

It is commonly believed that the river Saraswati is buried under the Thar Desert. Water is found very deep here. Wells are to be dug deep. Same is the case with the inhabitants of Bikaner. Their hearts are as deep as deep wells with water. Sands may be dry particles but not the hearts of the people. Sand dunes are beautiful to look at. They continue to be formed, shifts from one place to another and even destroyed. New dunes are formed everyday. A new dune is formed in the Thar city of Bikaner and that is Vijay Singh Rathore, fondly called Camel Man by his customers and friends.

For all these years, Thar has seen many dunes taking shapes, many of them never to be formed again. Camel Man Safari has earned a world wide reputation today. It is recommended by almost all the well known tourist guides. Camel Man is giving its services since 1983. The tourist group is led by Vijay Singh Rathore himself.
