Jessica Clark Photographer Camel Trek

Camel-riding safaris and treks in Australia 

International Journeys in India, Mongolia, Turkey & Morocco.

The camel is one of the world's most important domesticated animals - the dromedary and bactrian camel - has revealed how its genetic diversity has been shaped by ancient trade routes.

 

Camels have moved with people, through trading dating 3000 years, by analysing routes, we see a signature of our historical past.

 

 Camel treks will appeal to the vast majority of tourists who have concerns about animal welfare and other aspects of sustainability. Guests will meet camels who would have otherwise been destined for the abattoir as camels in Australia are classified as feral and are a current culling target.

 

Our camels now enjoy life in the context of tourism. They enjoy meeting people and we enjoy sharing the marvels of these characters with big hearts and healthy humps.
