Alice Springs Camel Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Join our one-hour camel tour during your stay in Alice Springs. Camel rides in Alice Springs are a great family-friendly activity. This gentle camel 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 flat clay track along an avenue of Iron Bark and Mulga trees before climbing a slight incline for sweeping views across the MacDonell Ranges– a great place for a photo on your camel. Along the way, spot kangaroos, wallabies, birds and other wildlife. This is a great experience for ages. Free transfers from outside your hotel's reception departs 30 minutes prior to tour.
  • 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.

This experience is hands down the best I have had so far in Alice Springs. Aneleise and Ben were lovely and the camels were well behaved too. The ride into the sunset, drinks after and door to door service is something I would recommend to anyone. Ask for Sahled Mohamed if

It was definitely a new experience to ride a camel through the bush!!! It was a good leisurely walk and we saw some kangaroos!! Was supposed to see the sunset but for some reason they had so go out an hour before it set?!

We arrived with a bus load of teenagers and had a fantastic time there. Marcus and his crew were extremely professional and welcoming to our group. Highly recommend it for something different.

This was a nice experience if you've never been on a camel before. It was a pleasant trip; merely something to do to pass the time. The guides were relatively quiet, with very little commentary. Group pictures were taken as a courtesy, but in terms of customer service

A fabulous afternoon stroll through the desert country of Alice Springs onboard a camel. I didn't expect it to be so relaxing. I would have loved more information about the camels and their early history. The weather was perfect, the colours were amazing and the camels were
