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.

Located 15 minutes from Alice Springs CBD or Simpson's Gap in a picturesque valley alongside the ancient West MacDonnell Ranges, Pyndan Camel Tracks has been awarded Nature Tourism Certification through Eco Tourism Australia.

Take a one-hour ride on the gentle camels to see unique Australian animals like 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. Owner and cameleer Marcus Williams has been working with camels since 1982 and his camels are well trained.

Spend some time at the 'Camel Lounge' to learn about camels and browse the camel-themed souvenirs. Inquires are welcome for tailor made tours for groups. Rides are available 7 days a week with free transfers from accommodation or self drive.

Join Pyndan Camel Tracks for an unforgettable experience in Alice Springs that will be the highlight of your trip.
