I did the sunset camel tour on Sunday 1st Feb and have to say I was pretty nervous. I arrived early and was entertained by the young apprentice MALCOLM who was so passionate and knowledgeable about the camels and was very clear he loves them - which was great!! The camels were very friendly, well trained and Pixie was the... More

This really was fun riding a camel. The camels were well trained. They knelt down, I hopped on, they limbered up and first we walked, then we jogged a bit. Ouch! Bouncing up and down. Lots of fun, and not expensive.

This was a lovely relaxing adventure. My guide James was very friendly and knowledgable with lots of laughs along the way. The views on the sunset tour were amazing. Don't forget to take your phone or a camera for pics along the way. I drove myself out to Pyndan Camel Tracks and it was very easy to find.

I went on a sunset view tour led by Malcolm and it was one of the best tours I've done. Even though the weather wasn't very permitting, and wet (the worst for 30 years), the ride was very pleasant. During the ride there were some areas where the camels weren't able to go, because of the fresh mud, but we... More

Thanks for reviewing our tour as one of the best in Alice Springs. Your kind words mean a lot, especially to our cameleers who are extremely hard working, and have to work outside in all sorts of challenging outback weather. You should see the desert after the rain, so green! More

My partner and I were ecstatic about going for a camel ride and the experience turned out to be much *much* better than we had anticipated! From the incredibly hospitable host and guide (James) to the cheeky camels who escorted us on our hour-long journey through the Outback, this day couldn't have got any better. We were also lucky enough... More
