“Such a wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful tour. From the moment we were picked up by Daryl from our hotel it was a blast from start to finish. The camels are very well cared for and very friendly. The saddles are very comfortable and Daryl kept us all amused and amazed with his stories of life on the camel farm and beyond. Daryl took photos for us all with our cameras and he did a really good job. It was beautiful to see the sunset and it was all over so fast. Back at the farm we had wonderful freshly baked damper to eat with dukah and a choice of beer, wine, fizzy and soft drinks. A wonderful experience.

“Nice ride into the sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We joined the 'Camel to Sunset' tour. It was our first tour since touching on Ayers Rock, and it was a good introduction to the place. It provided us with the opportunity to watch the rock basked in sunshine, and then change colours and the sun set. On the ~45 minute journey, the cameleers gave a very good account of the surrounding flora and fauna, as well as the all intricacies about camel. After the tour, we went back and enjoyed great snacks of freshly baked beer damper, all washed down with a range of alcholic drinks.

“No stinky camel, REAL guides, spectacular sights!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I was nicely surprised that the camel was not stinky and really well natured. The tour itsf was so enjoyable and the colours of Uluru at sunrise were amazing. What was so great were the 2 Cameleers we had who were from the Red Centre and were a wealth if knowledge and friendly to boot. Highly recommend
