Pyndan Camel Tracks offer the only camel rides in Alice Springs! Join us for an unforgettable experience that will be the highlight of your trip.
Our camels are gentle and well trained and our cameleers are very experienced. Our one hour camel rides depart 3 times a day, 7 days a week.
A camel ride against the backdrop of the beautiful West MacDonnell Ranges is a signature Red Centre experience, not to be missed. See unique Australian animals in the wild such as kangaroos, birds and other native wildlife as you experience the true beauty of the Red Centre. Feel the magic and serenity as you settle into a peaceful ride aboard our 'ships of the desert', the same mode of transport used by our outback pioneers.
Pyndan Camel Tracks has been operating since 2000 in Alice Springs. Owner and cameleer, Marcus Williams, has been working with camels since 1982. His camels are well trained and cared for.
Pyndan Camel Tracks has been awarded 'Nature Tourism Certification' through Eco Tourism Australia.
Come and visit our 'Camel Lounge' to learn all about camels and browse the range of camel-themed souvenirs.
Free transfers can be arranged from your Alice Springs accommodation or you can self drive. Please choose an option when making your booking.
Not recommended for persons with recent or planned hip replacements. Clients must be able to squat a little bit in order to mount the camel.
