Our camel ride in Alice Springs is a great experience for all ages and a fun family-friendly activity. We are the only camel ride on offer in Alice Springs. This gentle ride starts from the camel farm at Pyndan Camel Tracks located 20-minutes by road from Alice Springs. Once on the back of your camel, your experienced guide will lead you into White Gums Station following a track along an avenue of Iron Bark and Mulga trees before climbing a slight incline for sweeping views across the MacDonnell Ranges– a great place for a photo on your camel. Along the way, spot wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies and birds. Free transfers from outside your hotel's reception departs 30 minutes prior to tour.

A camel ride against the backdrop of the stunning West MacDonnell Ranges is highlight of your Red Centre experience. Join our gentle camels and your knowledgable guide for our one-hour camel ride choosing from departure in the afternoon or sunset. Travel to a scenic lookout with sweeping vistas across the desert landscape. What better vantage point than from the top of a camel. See kangaroos, birds and other wildlife as you experience the true beauty of the outback. Relax and feel the peace in a sublime landscape. We provide a free transfer service from your accommodation or you can self drive to us. After the sunset ride we gather at our camel lounge for light refreshments.

The sunset tour into Central Australia was great if you have not expeienced a camel ride before. We did see a beautiful sunset through the clouds and a full moon rising which was great. We felt that although the camels were well behaved and the tour was well organised, the guides could have given a bit more info in regards to our surroundings as well as the camels themselves (training, feeding, where they were sourced from etc). It was good to speak to Marcus at the end of the tour while we enjoyed a glass of bubbles. We did this tour on the night we arrived in Alice and loved it - then did another sunset camel tour when at Uluru, which emphasised that it could have been better if the tour guide interacted more with us. You defintiley had the more comfortable saddles through! :)

Fantastic experience and would highly recommend it. The tour guides were friendly and so were the camels. Well organised. Loved the snacks and drinks after. Worth the money

Michael_G October 2021

Great ride. The camels were very good and well looked after Sarah and Kit were great hosts. Fully recommend the experience

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.

Beautiful sunset tour with the family. Friendly camels and lovely guides. View over the desert at sunset was wonderful

V6749GCrebeccaj October 2021

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.

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.

lanahj September 2021

Went on the sunset tour and we were lucky enough to have the tour to ourselves (VIP). The staff were great and very knowledgeable. They provided lovely snacks and drinks after and were s super friendly. I have told my friends it is a must-do if you are in Alice Springs!

Caleb A September 2021

Was a great experience! Did the 12pm trip and had fun, the only issue was that the Central Australian heat really got to me. Besides that, I recommend anyone travelling to Alice Springs to take a trek with these guys

Shoggy_girl August 2021

We were fortunate enough to have 2 Camel Experiences in August, one with friends, then another with 9 family members- both were relaxing and delightful. I recommend for families and couples .. if you are single , just snuggle a camel !

MARK_P July 2021

Great scenery, camels clean and well cared for, relaxing and enjoyable with a chat and refreshment afterwords. Better than expected.

Rochelle_K July 2021

Friendly staff, camels and relaxing ride with beautiful views! Would've liked a little more of a talk from the guide about what we were seeing, flora fauna land marks etc. Would go again.

Rebecca S June 2021

It was fun to ride a camel but a little bit of a plod along. We were a bit disappointed by surroundings as long walk up a dusty road to what was basically a flat open area not up close to range as advertised and saw only a couple of birds on way. But well run operation with interesting camel history in shed.

Adoe4 June 2021

This was a nice tour. Free pick up from accommodation and a generous 70 odd minute sunset ride. Camels are clearly well cared for and the ride was uneventful. The scenery at dusk was lovely. Chatting afterwards with the owner/operators was interesting too. Reconnended

Kathy F June 2021

We were due to do a sunset but the clouds had other ideas.. still had the best time. Sarah was a good guide and Shadow a good camel. The clouds provided great photos. Lots of fun to be had and enjoyed our champagne at the end...

V7286VHnathang May 2021

Great experience to take a camel ride and witness the sunset just out of Alice Springs. Great to see how the ranges around the farm change colour.

JeanJeanes May 2021

Amazing! The camels were in excellent condition and obviously well cared for. We did the sunset ride, which was sensational. An unexpected bonus was beer, champagne and nibbles to finish the day. Highly recommend.

shevers2018 May 2021

Camel ride very relaxing and the camels very gentle. Jazzy our guide was very knowledgable about the camels and answered any questions we had. the scenery was magnificent and a great way to see to landscape. Was picked and returned to our accommodation. Would recommend

gregoI5535RL May 2021

Sunset camel ride. Relaxing pleasant trip. Camels gentle, guide was great, pickup and drop off from your town accommodation if needed and a refreshing ale and snack at the end. Not a desert trek, but given location and convenience, all you could ask for.

lauracW801NY April 2021

A beautiful relaxing camel ride at sunset, we fed the camels afterwards and had snacks and a beer to follow. Would recommend to watch the sunset set over the ranges and experience the outback.

E7528JQrobertw April 2021

We were a group of 6 and did the sunset tour which was fabulous. The views at sunset were spectacular. The camels were beautiful, very gentle and each with its own personality. The staff looked after us very well and drinks and nibblies after the ride were a nice touch. Overall a great experience and a must do when visiting Alice.

PaulaR1729 April 2021

Had great service being picked from our hotel which I recommend given one family was late after getting lost. Very relaxing time, took lots of photos and became attached to our camels!

Brian_Y April 2021

The camel ride was a very memorable experience. The camels were calm and sedate. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall it was a wonderful experience and a great way to see the countryside near Alice Springs.

tnolan88 April 2021

Such a beautiful, relaxing way to see the sunset across the ranges! The camels were gorgeous gentle creatures, our camel Good Boy was rightfully named and gave us a cruisey ride atop his back. The guides were lovely and personable and rounded off the whole trip with a beer and chat at the end which was just perfect. Thanks so much for the experience, I will be telling all my mates to add this to their list when they visit the red centre. :)
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
