Setzen Sich sich auf ein „Wüstenschiff“ und erleben Sie Uluru, Alice Springs, das Ilpara Valley und die MacDonnell Ranges so wie die ersten Pioniere.

Afghan cameleers came to Australia in 1860 with a shipment of 24 dromedaries for the Burke and Wills expedition. Today, these gentle creatures can be found all over the Territory, taking visitors on 5-minute ‘experiences’ to full-day safaris. Expert cameleers offer tours around Uluru, Alice Springs, through the Ilparpa Valley, the MacDonnell Ranges and Kings Canyon (Watarrka).


Spend some quality time getting to know your camel as the sun sets on Uluru and Kata Tjuta (or rises, if you prefer the cool morning air to the much hotter afternoons). Knowledgeable guides are by your side to fill you in on the ecology and history of the area – as well as give you tips on how to ride a camel.

Alice Springs and the Ilparpa Valley

Often referred to as the ‘Capital of the Outback’, Alice’s climate and landscape provides the perfect environment for cameleering. Riders traverse magnificent mountain scenery while being introduced to the unique culture of the land’s indigenous people.

Journeys through the Ilparpa Valley get you up close to the MacDonnell Ranges, and the passive nature of camel travel allows for the perfect opportunity to see the wide variety of local wildlife and experience the peace and tranquility of desert travel.
