what a great attraction, my husband and I did the 9am ride after being picked from our accommodation in Alice Springs which was great as we had no transport and this made the difference between us being able to go or not. The camels were really well behaved and the guide was fantastic with his knowledge as we wandered along... More

The young man leading the camels was Malcolm, charming young man, his respect for the camels was lovely, his... More

This family run business knows their camels. We took our group there for a thirty minute ride and everyone loved it! They even take the time to use your own camera to take a photo while you are out in the bush. What a great Outback adventure!

Well worth doing if you are in Alice. We did the 1 hour ride and they were really helpful and picked us up from the motel. The camels are really well trained and the guide gave lots of information about them. Really enjoyed it.

Despite it being the most expensive activity we had to fork out for when in Alice Springs (I'm a uni student , so 60 dollars seems like a lot) it was definitely worth it . I did the sunset tour on a camel named Saleh, who was literally the most gorgeous camel I've ever seen. Brilliant for photos and looking... More

My first camel ride and I loved it. James picked us up at our hotel (there was six of us). This is a family run business. Seeing the sun set on the back of a camel was awesome. On the way back to our hotel, James took a detour. He brought us to these wallabies on the property of another... More

Thanks Ruby our princess for taking us through such beautiful landscapes to watch the sun set in the MacDonald ranges. You even got a few nibbles along the way which tested our balance!
