Great value at only 6 Euro per person. If you’ve never been on a camel before then this is a real ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ experience. Just remember to hang on tight when the camel gets up or down!!

Was amazing. Done as part of Short South Tour. Scary when camels didnt want to do what handlers wanted but would definitely recommend. Lots of camels. Wouldnt recommend if you are overweight as it is cruel to the camels to carry that amount of weight.

I have no words, it’s the worst experience I have ever been through. The camels seem like they are suffering and after I saw the conditions I refused to get on and left. I don’t understand how people can see their faces and still get...More
