This was the best attraction we visited in the Northern Territory. The sunset was spectacular and Malcolm the guide informative - great value for money. Our camel (dromedary ?) was called 'Doc', was well behaved and added to the enjoyable ride for two novices. We were invited to taste the dates grown on a local farm - all part of... More

I decided the day before to take an one hour ride on a dromedary (dromedary not camels). The owners were very friendly and helpful. They picked me up at Alice and after the tour I was brought back to the resort (without additional costs). I thought i could ride by myself but the dromedaries were tied in a row with... More

Don't leave Alice Springs without doing the sunset camel ride. If you don't have much time to spare, this activity is ideal - it combines a pick-up and drop off from your hotel, a camel ride, the chance to experience the beautiful MacDonnell national park, with all the sights and sounds of the bush. There is also an interesting museum... More

I went on a sunset camel ride with Pyndan Camels last month but I can´t say much about it. I enjoyed the whole experience, because I love animals, but it wasn't what I had expected. We were picked up in Alice Springs by someone who worked at Pyndal (a young blonde man who wore sunglasses and didn´t seem very friendly,... More

Tourism can be challenging sometimes especially if someone in the team is having a bad day, but we must treat everyone with respect and care, and... More

One of the best activities on our holiday, so much fun! Our kids loved it and even though they only infants they were able to come along on our laps and were free. Very beautiful trek in nice tranquil surroundings at sunset. It was relaxing and the camels of course were just graceful.

I couldn't think of a nicer finish to our stay In Alice springs. We went on the sunset camel ride. The fee included hotel collection\ and drop off. The camels are lovely and the ride was just perfect. The staff were great very entertaining so many stories to share. Thank you for such a happy ending to our stay.

We had a great time on the ride..definitely an experience to remember. James was more than willing to answer any questions I asked, and I asked a lot. It was relaxing, informative and fun. Would recommend it to anyone that would like to do something different.

From being picked up at our accomodation by James and the return a bit saddle sore, it was an excellent excursion. The extra personal touches added to the purpose of a trip, getting up on the camel and had our face cheeks sore from the smiles and laughter too! The ride itself was spectacular as the sun set and we... More

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.
