Overview
Book ahead to experience the outback as the original Australian explorers did on this camel tour of Alice Springs. As you listen to your guide's commentary while on the back of a camel, it’s easy to imagine what it was like for settlers hundreds of years ago to travel across the Australian Red Centre. Stop for photos against the backdrop of the MacDonnell Ranges and spot wallabies and kangaroos.

Great experience, the camels were sweet and the guides treated us very well. Would do it again. The ride is very comfortable and easy. Tour was outside, no masks necessary.

We did the sunset tour and the camels and setting were wonderful. We were disappointed in the host experience however. The young staff need some training on engaging with the guests. When we arrived we were asked our booking name and told to wash our hands and sign forms then we just stood around waiting until told to line up to where we would hop on the camels. There was no welcome or group briefing and once on our camels we just started walking off. The two staff did not introduce themselves so I don’t know their names. We got no overview of the camel farm or outline of what our tour would entail. Along the way we had no knowledge passed on of any interesting landmarks or commentary at all, except when we stopped for some quick cursory photos.

Cheers for sharing the you enjoyed our camels and the setting. And most importantly, thanks for your feedback about the host experience. It's so important for us to hear as the owners as we can't be on every tour, every time. Our interps training for our guides is so much greater than what you experienced. We have shared your review with the camel tour guides and it gave us the opportunity to reiterate their hosting role. Thanks again.

Riding a camel with my family at Sunset! An amazing experience for the whole family! Thanks Sarah and the gang and of course the amazing Camels for the tour. My eight yr old was especially excited about having her own camel. We also got to see some kangaroos in the wild on our hr tour.

Thanks for sharing your kids and family enjoyment at meeting our camels and Sara our wonderful cameleer. The kangaroos seem chilled at sharing their MacDonnell Ranges valley with our camel train.

Lovely people, lovely camels. The camels seem to be very well looked after. I only wish it ran slightly later so we could actually see the sunset (it was setting as we were getting driven home). I also wish we had a little more time with our camel- only had time for one quick photo when we got off at the end before they were put back in their pens. I also wish the tour was a little more informative, especially about the camels ie - where these ones came from etc. we kind of just arrived and then got put on the camel and went. I did find the trail itself though quite nice and very peaceful (except for one of the kids who wouldn’t shut up). The camels were all very lovely and well behaved. Great way to end the day.

So glad you enjoyed the peace out on tour. That's the special gift that we share with our visitors rather than announcing facts while you are riding with your camel, experiencing the sound of its feet and its breath, in and out, under you. Thanks for all your tips that we'll discuss during our next staff meeting.
