Cameleer Husbandry and Best Practices
in the Context of Camel Trekking

"We are immensely grateful to our camels for their exceptional care towards people during treks. In return, we ensure that they have the freedom to browse and eat throughout the day. We strongly believe in treating them with kindness and avoid using any harmful control devices, such as nose pegs that can cause discomfort to their sensitive snout tissue or chain halters that can restrict their jaw movement.

However, it's important to note that we are not naive or impractical. A loyal employee values their employer, and we strive to cultivate such a relationship with our camels. The only difficulties we encounter are when we take in camels with past traumas. Resolving their trauma requires time, dedication, and patience."

Karen Jane Ellis,  Owner & Co-Director - Camel Treks Australia Pty Ltd - Camel Carer since 1996

Learn with Camel Treks Australia

Camel Treks Australia's team is currently developing an online video learning series tailored for camel owners and enthusiasts. These lessons will emphasise the intelligence of camels and the significant impact our presence can have on their lives, particularly in handling and training.

Please be aware that Camel Treks Australia no longer accepts volunteer learners. However, we warmly welcome veterinary students seeking educational opportunities, as well as outdoor education students seeking practical experience as part of their coursework. Approval for attendance requires both a police check and a working with children check.

Individuals interested in employment must possess experience working with large animals and/or hold qualifications in outdoor education. Additionally, applicants should be capable of obtaining both a working with children check and a police check.
