Choose from sunrise, sunset or express camel rides against the backdrop of Ayers rock (Uluru) and Kata tjuta. Watch the desert come to life in the early morning, or choose a later ride to see the changing colors of Ayers rock and Kata tjuta at dusk. If youre short on time, take a morning or afternoon express camel ride for a taste of central Australias traditional transport. Along the way, your expert cameleer provides information about the deserts wildlife and ecology, and shares their passion and respect for camels, the ships of the desert, which played a vital role in opening up central Australias remote outback regions.

Know More about this tour

Gaze at UNESCO World Heritage-protected Uluru (Ayers rock) and Kata tjuta (the Olgas) in the distance as you roam the central Australian desert on a camel with your guide. Listen carefully as a cameleer shares interesting details about the Australian outback and your hump-backed travel companions.

Camels are ideally suited to the hot, dry climate of Australia's interior. Imported here in the 19th century, they remained the principal means of outback transport until railways and roads were established. Today there are an estimated 200,000 one-humped, dromedary camels in the wild. Though few camels are used by humans today, this herd is treated like family, each one has its own pet name and personality. With a breathtaking view of Uluru as your backdrop, this relaxed, slow-paced camel ride is the perfect way to experience the fascinating ecology of the desert.

Sunrise camel ride (2.5 hours)
Ride across the desert on a peaceful 1-hour camel ride through stunning sand dune country with the awe-inspiring sight of Uluru and Kata tjuta as your backdrop. Take in the cool morning air and watch as the rising sun lights up Uluru and the surrounding plains. Learn about the landscape and fauna from your expert cameleer, and enjoy billy tea and freshly baked beer bread (damper) with quandong jam (outback native fruit) after the ride.

Sunset camel ride (2.5 hours)
Take a 1-hour camel ride at dusk to see the outback colors deepen as the sun sets behind the desert plains, sharpening the monolithic outlines of Uluru and Kata tjuta. Return to the camel farm at twilight to enjoy drinks and outback food, including freshly baked beer bread (damper).

Morning or Afternoon Camel Express (1.5 hours)
For a shorter camel ride, cross the desert on a 45-minute express camel trip for views of Uluru, Kata tjuta and the outback landscape. Hear interesting facts about the local flora and fauna, and visit the camel museum to learn about the important role played by camels over the centuries in outback Australia.

The afternoon express ride is seasonal and only operates from April to October.

    What a wonderful experience, the whole evening was great 👍. The guides were very informative and the camels 🐪 were so cute, all with names to match their character, we had Dr. Phil 😂 The fun continues after the ride with an amazing spread of homemade bread which was still warm, and various dips and toppings and did I mention the wine, it was delicious too, no cheap stuff! But seriously don’t hesitate to book this trip, definitely won’t regret it 😊

    A fantastic experience all around - we had kind, funny and knowledgeable guides, enjoyed fantastic views of Uluru, watched a magnificent sunset, and indulged in some excellent home baked damper bread and drinks at the end of the journey. The camels had their own personalities but were all very well behaved. Highly recommended!

    This was such an amazing experience. My son was very nervous prior, but this is now his absolute highlight of our trip to Uluru! The team were very informative and attentive. Not to mention the camels that were so well behaved and gentle. Such a great way to enjoy the sun going down over Kata Tjuta. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone! Thank you!

    We loved the camel ride at sunset. The guides were really knowledgeable and comfortable handling the animals. It felt like the camels were like pets rather than an economic gain which was refreshing. Drinks and nibbles after the ride were excellent too. Would highly recommend this as an activity to do at sunrise or sunset.

    This was a very cool experience. Camels walk at a very slow pace and you get some cool views. Was a little windy the day we went so we didn't get to see sunset but not a big deal.

    Unbeatable view of Uluru perched on a camel on top of a Big Red Sand Dune plus a magical sunrise! Doesn't get any better! Thanks Bert for all the interesting info and camel lore a memorable morning! Love camels!! Not giving up my day job just yet tho!
