Where are we going today?
You've probably seen camels on television, or perhaps you have seen the in the zoo? With those funny looking humps and very long tongues!
How about RIDING one! Pyndan Camel Tracks is the ONLY tour operator in Alice Springs! (Did you even know camels existed in Australia? True fact - they do!)
Depending on the number of people that are on the tour, you can have a camel to yourself, or you might have to share. Of course, you get to choose who you share with though! The very experienced cameleers will have to choose who sits from or back though.
It really is for any age though! Even kids under 3 can ride, but they have to ride on the parents lap. Parents, don't worry - it's very safe for kids!
Each camel have their own names, and own personality, so you can be matched to a camel that is perfect for you.
With Pyndan Camel Tracks, you can choose from the one hour tours, which will take you at Pyndan Camel Tracks years and heads out to give you incredible views of the MacDonnell Ranges, through Temple Bar Gap. Kangaroos, wallabies, budgies, lizards and even birds of prey might even join you on your journey!
If there are more than 8 of you, you can organise a half day your where you get to really understand the camels in more details, including a shady dry riverbed break.
Both tours with Pyndan Camel Tracks offer free transfers from your accommodation if you need!
