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.
Highlights
  • Experience Australia as the original settlers did: on the back of a camel
  • Get closer to wildlife than if on a traditional Alice Springs vehicle tour
  • Learn the history of camels in Australia from your guide
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off makes for a seamless experience
What to Expect
Ready yourself for pickup from your Alice Springs hotel at the time indicated upon booking, depending on which tour option you selected (morning, afternoon, or sunset). Or, self-drive to Pyndan Camel Tracks if you prefer. There's no better vantage point to see the local wildlife without disturbing them than on the back of a camel. Keep your camera ready for up-close views of wildlife such as wallabies, kangaroos, and native birds on your gentle ride to the scenic Temple Bar Gap. Your guide helps you spot wildlife and teaches you about the history of camel use in Australia. When the tour ends, you are returned to your Alice Springs hotel.

My family (2 adults and 1 child) received a gift certificate for this Camel ride and at first I wasn't sure what to expect. After a slight upgrade charge to do the sunset tour, we chose our date which was confirmed with a text. However, upon arrival, the guides were not

On The Ghan from Adelaide and chose to ride camels. Great way to get off the train and do something different. Camels were great and easy going. Staff were nice and friendly. Definitely a must if you are looking for something else to do.....

The sunset tour was great. Our guide, Ben, was funny and a font of knowledge. Pyndan Camel Tour's property made for a lovely tour, and the camels were very well behaved. We were lucky enough to catch a couple glimpses of the local kangaroos, and agreed that this was a great

Heartening to hear that your tour was great from the guide Ben, to the information you received, and the camels themselves of course, who are so charismatic. Hope to see you next time. Cheers Marcus
