Coming into Alice Springs in the afternoon, we booked a sunset ride at the last minute. On a weekday, there was only three of us - perfectly quiet to enjoy the sunset over the West MacDonnell Range.
I was fearing that my backside would get a pounding from the camel ride. Strangely enough, it was a gentle and comfortable bobbing ride around the track.
You get to know the camels and their funny characters, the one that's a bit stubborn, the one that pines after their mates if they don't get a walk, the one that likes a cheeky munch on the local vegetation next to the path.
Remember to take a shower after the ride, unless you like to impress others with the new fragrance Eau de Camel.
