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, 6 days a week. A one-hour 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.
