A relaxing one-hour camel tour led by experienced cameleers lead you on your camel ride. Due to their gentle nature camels tend not to frighten the wildlife, thereby giving you a chance to get up close to wallabies, kangaroos, lizards and native birds. Travel through Iron Bark and Mulga trees, across a clay pan flat, before reaching the sweeping vistas of Temple Bar Gap. Here, you’ll get the opportunity to stretch your legs and hear stories from experienced cameleers.
After finishing your camel ride, you will conclude with your trip and drop you back at your hotel.
