For 6 Euros this is the most fun you can have. Managed to get my husband to do this too and we never stopped laughing from start to finish. The camels are so gentle. It really is a must do.

Camel ride is a must . Some people feel it’s exploitation but the camels appeared to be well looked after and it’s been there way of living for many years

As part of a tour we took the camel ride. The camels had twin seats which were much easier than the traditional seat on a camel and the ride took us up into the volcanic park with some good scenery well worth a try The...More

Twos up on a camel, your ride lasts around 20 mins and that’s enough. It’s funny, not too smelly and it doesn’t look too bad for the camels.

Good price for the ride, 12 euros per camel, if there is just one person they use sand bags to make up the weight the other side. Our kids 13 and 14 had a ride on the camels in December, they loved it, lots of...More
