Meet the camels who specialise in escorted outback travel


Far North Flinders Ranges of South Australia


The rugged, weathered peaks and river red gum lined rocky creek beds of the Flinders Ranges in outback South Australia form some of the most dramatic and beautiful landscapes in the country. Soak up the true beauty of the sun setting against the Flinders Ranges and over the magnificent Lake Torrens,the second largest salt lake in the southern hemisphere. Fall in love with the red, orange coloured sand dunes that stretch as far as the eye can see in this semi-arid bush wilderness.


It's a place rich in Aboriginal history and home to a vast array of wildlife. The Aboriginal people of the Northern Flinders Ranges at the time of European settlement were the Wailpi, Guyani, Jadliaura and Pilatapa. These four language groups are now collectively referred to as the Adnyamathanha. Camel Treks Australia acknowledge the Adnyamathanha Aboriginal people as the First Peoples and Nation of the lands and waters we live and work upon and we pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge and respect the deep spiritual connection and the relationship that Aboriginal have with this land.

Return transfers are available from Adelaide airport, Adelaide CBD accommodation, or meet the bus at 6.45am at the Adelaide Central Bus Station. Travel in comfort with Genesis Tour and Charter. They’ll deliver you to our location and pick you up at the completion of the trek. Book your ticket direct with Alan and his team.

Currently our below listed 2022 camel treks are closed to booking whilst we allocate booked guests from 2020 and 2021 who were unable to trek due to lock downs and border closures.


  • We expect to open bookings early January 2022


  • We are proudly Australia's only camel riding trekking operation.


  • Due to COVID-19 and associated variants we have sustained a massive increase in insurance and operating costs, necessitating adjustments to our booking procedures and cancellation policy.


  • Bookings for 2022 can be processed ON-LINE with a 20% deposit.


  • Bookings for 2022 are processed with a 20% non-refundable, yet fully transferable trek deposit in 2022. Whilst we hope all trekkers are able to make their chosen trek dates in 2022 we will switch trek dates for any guest unable to attend their trek due to COVID-19 and variants. This allows the camels to continue to thrive and our continued operations.


  • Final trekking payments are due no earlier than 5 - 10 days prior to the chosen trek departure date.


  • Should a trek date be cancelled due to a COVID-19 or associated variant causing you illness, closing state borders or causing lock downs your deposit amount will be switched to an alternative trekking date.

Thank you for visiting us on-line, when out in our real world trekking with camels, you'll meet some true characters. In Australia camels are classified as feral animals, they are frequently targeted and killed in major culling programs. It's important for us to share that we are leading the global tourism industry in responsible animal tourism, providing a home for camels that would have otherwise been shot, or destroyed for meat consumption. We strive to make a positive difference to each individual camels life, and provide them with a safe desert refuge. Our vision is for a world where tourism is kind to animals and allows people to enjoy interacting in a positive natural environment.
