In the middle of nowhere but worth the trek. We went for the 1 hour camel ride. Because of a mistake I made, we arrived too early for the 1 hour ride. Normally, in the summer (this was May) it is too hot to go before 4 pm and it was around 1 pm. We couldn’t wait around until 4 but the sky was overcast and it wasn’t hot. We asked if we could possible ride anyway and thankfully they agreed. So my husband and I each had our own camel. Our guide was terrific and I wish I could remember her name but she was young, in her twenties I’d say and you could tell she really loved and cared for and about the camels. This was important to me as many times animals used as tourist rides are not well cared for.
She told us many interesting facts and stories about the camels as we rode and answered our questions. Camels are very smart animals and these were one hump camels. I asked if they had two hump camels and she said that two hump camels are for cold climates. The ride was very comfortable, more comfortable to me than riding a horse. Our guide said she thought it was like riding a couch. She also told us some history about the area and about the Nabateans.
They recommend you wear closed-toe shoes. I would also bring a hat and water as you are not a camel.
The camels were friendly and funny and we had a very enjoyable ride.
