"I love the desert and its incomparable sense of space."
-Robyn Davidson, author of "Tracks"
Extended treks allow time for a new rhythm to develop, one that allows for relaxation from life's stresses and a deeper connection with outdoor living. We welcome guests to become 'hands-on' with the camels and involved with the cameleers in grooming, saddling, leading, hobbling, and shepherding. The Flinders Range's valleys and granite peaks provide excellent opportunities for photography and studying the geology of the area, flora, and fauna.
You'll develop a relationship with the camels, camp under thousands of stars and dine on meals prepared over the camp fire flames. These trips allow for a new rhythm to develop, one that will connect you to yourself and nature.
"A once-in-a-lifetime experience to have a soak in the desert in the company of camels with a cheerful, helpful and very careful team to facilitate it. An amazing amount of work was done to transport and feed our small group. I was so glad it was not shorter than the 9 days!" - Barbara, 2017
"The 9 day trek with camels off the Birdsville Track on Clayton Station was truly memorable. In every respect the organisation was exemplary; food provided was plentiful, remarkably fresh and tasty; the crew were without exception cheerful, friendly and so accommodating; the landscape utterly captivating and surprisingly varied and almost lush (given the desert location); and the stars of the show, our 8 camels, totally endearing."
