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.

Nice Ride is not extensive doesn’t need to be a group But need 2 person to be able to Ride a camel. Advise to have water with you is a 40 min Ride in a very HOT weather.
