Lanzarote is approximately 78 miles from Africa covering 845 square miles. The island has a kind of moon-like look due to the extensive lava fields - beautiful and desolate. On Lanzarote I had my first camel ride. It was great!!

Camels are tied together with a chain and they just have few centimeters between them...they are treated as if they were "slaves". It is incredible that such terrible businesses are still allowed in 2018. Please avoide to incentivate animals cruelty

Camels can carry a lot of weight, around 350-400lbs and more. My son is a big lad and he went on no problem. Any weight descepancy is evened out by the handler with sandbags. Hope this helps.
