Camel riding | Mongolia Travel Guide

The Bactrian camel is endemic of the steppes of Central Asia. It has two humps full of fat, unlike its cousin the dromedary that lives in North Africa and in Middle East. The Bactrian camel is much rarer than the dromedary, we count between 1,5 and 2 millions, almost exclusively domesticated. About 950 Bactrian camels still live in the wild, essentially in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia and in North China.

Physical description

The Bactrian camel is the biggest camel. It’s between 1,80 and 2,30 metres (5,91 — 7,55 feet) at the withers and its head can culminate at 3,50 metres (11,48 feet) from the ground. The smallest females weigh 300 kilograms (661,39 pounds), whereas the dominant males can reach one ton.

In winter, it’s covered with a long woolly coat that makes it majestic, but if you see it during summer, it will have lost its hair.

Camel riding

Going in the Gobi Desert on camelback is the major experience of any trip in this remote area of our planet. From atop of your mount, you will see the desert as the camels’ breeders of Gobi see it, and will discover the hidden places of this hostile region. But be careful, even if the pace is rather slow, a camel trek can turn to be very tiring. Our advices :

  • Make sure of wearing long trousers, socks and closed shoes. You can also put your trousers inside your socks. Don’t forget your hat, scarf, sunglasses and solar cream !
  • Sitting on a camel (and dismounting) is probably the most impressive moment. You sit between the two humps while the camel is crouching (this is not a big deal). Then the camel gets back on its feet extending first its back legs (which will make you overbalance forward), then its front legs (and you’ll overbalance backwards). So you must be careful and hold your belongings (your camera notably).
  • The saddle is composed of a carpet and stirrups. You sit between the camel’s humps. The camel is wide, and it’s not unusual to have aches inside the thighs during the hike or at the end of it. A cream or a painkiller can be useful.
  • The pace of the hike is quite slow. A local guide may hold your camel with a lunge. Even if the camel is a quiet animal and if it’s difficult to make it trot along, it might be carried away. So you must stay attentive during the whole hike and not have a risky behaviour that could frighten the animals.
  • If you don’t feel comfortable, your camel could feel it and it could make it nervous. So firmly hold the reins and show the animal that you’re self-confident ; this will calm it. Properly sit, you will also avoid to fall.

Right ! Now you’re ready to fully enjoy your camel trek and to admire Gobi’s landscapes !

CAMEL RIDE in GRAN CANARIA — Maspalomas Dunes

Home » Sports and adventures » Camel ride » Camel Safari in the Dunes of Maspalomas

Only a few miles away from civilization, in the natural reserve of Maspalomas Dunes, a pack of 65 Dromedaries (camels) awaits you for a nice and quiet ride in a camel safari through part of the famous sand-dunes.

The Camel guides from Sahara receive you and choose your camel for a great fun ride in the dunes.


Don´t miss out!

Be a Tuareg in the Sahara for a moment, take a ride on the back of your dromedary (camel) and get the desert-feel!

Admire the diversity of the surroundings, the exceptional contrast in this part of Gran Canaria between the sand dunes with the blue Atlantic Ocean in the background and, on the other side in the distance, the mountains in the centre of the island.

Feel the peace of this place; listening to the pace of your dromedary on sandy paths.


Your guide on this camel safari is native from Sahara and expert in the breeding and training of camels.

Perhaps you are lucky and will have the opportunity to admire a new born camel baby on its shaky legs or, as a curiosity, a white dromedary with blue eyes.

You chose the moment to visit our Camel Safari park with your partner, family or friends. Manolo, Pepe, Ali Baba, Canuto, Macho and Daniel are some of the dromedaries, which leave every 15 minutes for a 30 minute excursion into the sand- dunes.

The proximity of the site and the short ride, give you the opportunity to spend the rest of the day with other activities. Why not go shopping or have lunch in one of the restaurants around Meloneras or the Faro Shopping Center (lighthouse)? Or, even better, how about a refreshing swim at Maspalomas beach after the camel ride?

Our clients’ latest comments

Abigail A.December 2018

Fun experience. We had a great experience with the camel ride on the dunes of Maspalomas

Chloe P.December 2018

I went with my husband and my children and we loved everything. I think that 30 minutes is more than sufficient and any more would seem to be too much. I don’t know what it’s like to ride a camel through the Sahara desert but this must’ve been close.

Holly M.December 2018

The walk was quite short but we took some beautiful pictures. I went with my partner and when we finished, we took the opportunity to stay and enjoy the beach for the rest of the day.

Paige G.December 2018

It’s an essential visit if you pass through the island’s dunes. The guides are from the Sahara and it feels like you are in a movie in the desert. Truly recommended.

DannyDecember 2018

Great fun! Worth every penny. Arrive early as looks to get busy.

Kate P.December 2018

That was a great ride! Our camel, Bara was really nice and peaceful. The dunes amazing. I really enjoyed!!! ???? Thank You

 

 

Amy T.November 2018

Camel ride on the dunes!! Fantastic tour in Maspalomas

Thomas L.H.November 2018

The whole family loved the walk, especially the children. The environment is ideal for crossing the dunes of Maspalomas. It feels like you’re in the open desert. Highly recommended.

Alexander G.November 2018

The camel ride was wonderful. The worst was arriving at the camel site.

lily K.O.November 2018

High quality and a great vale. For 13 euros you can go for a ride, enjoy the environment and the surrounding palm trees and more. We went as a group of 8 people and although we had to wait some time, the weather was very cool on the path.

Chelsea R.November 2018

Highly recommended. My girlfriend and I decided to try it because some friends suggested it to us a few months back, and it was fantastic. When we arrived there was no one else there and we didn’t have to wait.

Reece P.November 2018

Something different and a stone’s throw from the area of Meloneras where we were. The only downside was that it was not easy to find the place, but the camel ride was great and we felt like we were in the desert.

Alexandra S.O.November 2018

We went as a group of 12 to ride the camels and we all felt like we were in the desert, with the dunes of Maspalomas and the Sahrawi guides and camels. Highly recommended and very affordable.

Jake V.October 2018

Beatiful experience. Camel ride on the dunes of Maspalomas was just great.

Liam P.October 2018

Wonderful. Camel rides on the dunes are one of the activities you cannot miss in Gran Canaria.

Jack H.October 2018

A must if you go to Gran Canaria. It’s a unique place to do this kind of camel ride through this beautiful oasis.

Louis A.E.October 2018

Pleasant walk and very helpful Saharan guides. We had a hard time finding the place but we got there after asking for directions. However, there was no rush because the camels leave every 15 minutes, which is perfect.

Abbie O.October 2018

Very good price and a fantastic experience. We loved riding the camels through the dunes of Maspalomas.

Elizabeth L.M.October 2018

Although the guides were from the Sahara, they spoke very good English, and the camels were very nice and friendly, and in the end there was nothing of the odour that they warned us about before going. A delightful, authentic ride.

LailaOctober 2018

Great experience! Camels are well taking care of and you see a lot of beautiful nature. The information says it is wheelchair friendly which is not the case and not recommended if you ask me. Yes they help you to get in the seat but from the parking place you have to get on a not paved path to the camel ride with a lot of dirt, big stones and sand. Also the location of the camel ride is sand 🙁 

Benjamin N.September 2018

We had a lot of fun riding the camels and we barely expected to even be able to ride! We felt like we were in the desert when we rode the albino camel, hahaha.

Courtney H.L.September 2018

A great thing to do with friends. It lasted 30 minutes but that was plenty to feel like I was riding a camel in the Sahara desert rather than in Gran Canaria.

Nicole A.September 2018

My husband, my daughter and I took a ride on the backs of these animals! Mine was nothing short of Ali Baba, hahaha.

Charles P.A.September 2018

For 13 euros per person and 8 euros per child, it is worth a try. It’s not every day that my family and I enjoy a day in an authentic landscape of dunes and oases. I recommend sun protection for the children, with 30 minutes of sun exposure to protect them from.

Christopher T.September 2018

The camels were very calm, well-trained and under control by the guides, who, as we talked to them, said they were all Sahrawi. The downside was that when we parked the car, we had to do many laps of the area to find the exit point of the tour. The best and most direct way is to just ask for Maspalomas Pond, and it is right there.

DanielSeptember 2018

Good fun and amazing views of the mountains.

 

 

Morris KSeptember 2018

It has been an amazing experience for me and the family. I will recommend this ride if you want to enjoy something different in the desert. The price was affordable. 

Charles T.O.August 2018

Wonderful, I went with my wife and children. Even the smallest of my children, who is 17 months old, rode with us. It felt like we were riding a camel in the desert instead of in Gran Canaria.

David H.D.August 2018

The guides were very well organized. It wasn’t complicated and customers were arriving as others were leaving. A lovely walk.

Rhys D.August 2018

Good activity for less sunny days. My son and I were in the front of the line and it was the best for the extra room and views we had. I advise trying to get the first camel leading the caravan.

Soraia F.August 2018

Absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The guides were very professional, enthusiastic and customer service was perfect. The camels were also friendly, we got so many amazing pictures with them 😀 would highly recommend this experience and would most certainly experience it again myself.

Location

Camel Safari Duna Oasis is located at the Avenida Oceania, near the Charca de Maspalomas (pond), in walking distance of the light house (Faro de Maspalomas).

You can also reach us easily by bicycle, car , taxi or public bus-transport.

Travelling by car, come to the Cristobal Colón roundabout (on the road from Maspalomas to Maspalomas Lighthouse). Once there, turn left and go down a small hill until you see another roundabout. Take the first exit to the right (the sign says Parking de Maspalomas) and drive along this road (Touroperador Tui Avenue) for about 2 km until you reach the Parking de Maspalomas. Here you will be able to park in the street or within the car park. On the left-hand side, about 100 metres away, you will see a street that is closed to traffic, through which you should walk about 150 metres towards the canal and the bridge. On the right-hand side, about 100 metres away, you will see the camels.

Public buses to the Faro (lighthouse) of Maspalomas (GLOBAL Buslines)

Maspalomas Lighthouse Bus Station. From there, you have to go towards the Hotel Palm Beach down the Street until you reach the canal, and from there go along the canal for about 300 metres until you almost reach the first bridge.

What kind of health care do the camels receive?
All of our animals are healthy and strong. We do not have sick animals working. Their health can be easily checked. Camels are ruminants and are ruminating for around 17 hours each day. A camel that does not ruminate like this is indisposed or sick.

Our camels also have their own veterinarian. All are registered with the Canary Islands government in the Department of Animal Health, where the status of the camels can be checked.

All of our animals have a microchip (which is not required) and are checked every year.

Each year run blood tests and a tuberculosis test are run by the Canary Islands’ official veterinarians, and they are also dewormed every two months.

How long do the camels work?
The camels are ready to work between 9:15 and 15:45. We have 35 working animals and the work is divided among them all. While some go for a ride, the others rest until their turn. In

The Best Places to Go Camel Riding

Credit: Alexandra Bellink, flickr.com/photos/zbellink/

There are a number of ways to take in the desert landscapes of the world. However, walking is exhausting and riding through the endless sands in a vehicle leaves something to be desired. This leaves only one option — camel riding. A leisurely trek swaying back and forth on the back of the camel is easily the best way to experience any desert. Camel riding tours are popular in Africa and the Middle East, but camel tours are also pretty well known in some places in the world that visitors might not expect.

Morocco

Credit: Cait, flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

With a history of nomadic Berbers that lived and died on camelback, Morocco is still the number one place to go for camel riding tours. Not only will visitors find them in plenty, but a trek through Saharan dunes that rise as high as 50 metres off the ground is a thrilling experience. Camel treks in Morocco can last anywhere from two days to two weeks traversing the desert. Visitors can take in a stunning sunrise on top of a sand dune or sit down for an evening meal in one of the few nomadic Berber camps left today. Most who visit Morocco like to live like a sheik, but going for a camel ride through the landscape provides a look at the country’s best preserved natural landscape and can gives visitors a chance to experience the enduring culture of the desert dwellers.

Egypt

Right alongside Morocco, Egypt is one of the most well known destinations for camel trekking in the world. Visitors can enjoy camel treks as they weave between the Great Pyramids, trace along the Nile River or travel deeper into Egypt than most people ever see. One of the biggest highlights of a camel trek through Egypt’s Sinai desert is visiting one of the few oasis areas. The green grass and blue water sit in stark contrast to the red, orange and yellow of the surrounding desert. Like in Morocco, those who venture into Egypt’s desert on multi-day camel treks are treated to the culture and customs of the Bedouin people who are frequent hosts to tours passing through their paths.

 

Australia

As one of the most surprising places to find camels, Australia actually has quite a herd at their disposal. Camels where brought to the island nation during early colonization due to their advantage over horses in dry climates. Today, the tradition of camel riding through the outback remains a strong one. While Broome in Western Australia is the most popular place for camel rides, a trip to the Northern Territory is a must. Treks through the Northern Territory are literally off the beaten path, as there really is no path to follow. Camel treks provide the opportunity to reach some of the most remote regions of the outback for bushwalks or just to take in the sights. Some treks will even extend as far as the Queensland border, taking animals and people through rivers, lake systems and sprawling desert plains.

 

China

Credit: Morten Knutsen, flickr.com/photos/slengfjes

Although many popular camel treks take place just to the north in the Gobi desert, the lush country of China outside of the desert also holds a fascinating camel trek of its very own. Visitors to China can trace the country’s Silk Road on camel back the same way many ancient merchants did. While taking in the rare sights of China, the camel treks down the Silk Road make stops at the ancient town of Dunhuang, the ruins of Tumenguan and concludes in the southern town of Hechang, just outside of the metropolis of Chengdu. While many think of China of having more of a history with horses rather than the camel, this beast of burden actually played a massive role in the development of transport throughout China’s long and epic history. It was the camel that helped connect China to Europe and riding a camel down the legendary Silk Road is to literally take a step back in time to experience history.

 

Kenya

Nick Holland, flickr.com/photos/nic1/4069108771/

Kenya is world famous for its amazing array of wildlife. It offers an absolutely stunning array of safari experiences that allow visitors to spot elephants, lions, zebra and much more. However, one of Kenya’s best kept secrets is its incredible opportunity for camel safari. Touring the area around Ngorongoro Crater, the five day camel safari is the perfect experience for those that crave real adventure. Visitors can choose to walk beside their camel mounts or ride them the entire way as they spot Kenya’s native wildlife at a safe distance for both man and camel. Unlike other camel tours, visitors will be treated to the constant sounds of African wildlife as they ride and make camp for the night. It is an experience that they will find on no other camel trek throughout the world.

Camel Riding in Marrakech | Glee Of Life

Day 2 in Marrakech, we ventured out for a little adventure exploring the desert and Palm Grove of Marrakech from a camel’s back.

We arranged a trek with Dunes and Desert Exploration who picked us up from our Riad at agreed time and drove us to the Palm Grove 30 minutes away from the Medina.

And these beautiful creatures were patiently waiting for our arrival.

It was an overall two hour ride through the Palm Grove and
surrounding Moroccan countryside.




It was the hottest day during our 4 day stay of 35 degrees and I didn’t think I would manage the heat but it was actually fine — I covered myself in SPF50, put on cheich (protective turban veil) and ensured I had my little lifesaver on hand — Aveda botanical face mist to keep me cool and hydrated.

You wouldn’t expect riding a camel would be that hard but let me tell you, my legs and backside were hurting for two days. When we stopped for a break of delicious mint tea and crepes with honey, we were quite honestly relieved.


The camels were very friendly. I made friends with one and kept stroking her nose and when I stopped, she kept nudging me to carry on. Very demanding.

Some were more fashionable than others.

This one month old baby Maya was so adorable and looking for her mommy to be fed at any given opportunity.

The guides were friendly and very funny, we kept singing along and made jokes. They were willing to take pictures with our cameras and also took professional
photos that we could purchase. One of the leaders kept encouraging the camels to trot — what fun! 




Unforgettable experience and highly recommended excursion to anyone up for a fun cultural experience. Check out their website here, they’ll find everything from mountain/quad bikes, trekking to balloon rides!
