Pyndan Camel Tracks
Welcome to Pyndan Camel Tracks, the only camel tour operator in Alice Springs.
A camel ride against the backdrop of the beautiful West MacDonnell Ranges is a signature Red Centre experience. Owner Marcus Williams has worked with camels since 1982 and his camels are well trained.
Located 15 minutes from Alice Springs or Simpsons Gap in a picturesque valley alongside West MacDonnell Ranges, Pyndan Camel Tracks has Nature Tourism Certification through Eco Tourism Australia.

During the one-hour ride with the gentle camels you’ll see unique Australian animals like kangaroos as you experience the true beauty of the Red Centre. Rides are available 7 days a week with free transfers from accommodation or self drive. Spend time at the ‘Camel Lounge’ to learn about camels and browse the camel-themed souvenirs.
