Camel Riding

Font Size Increase Font Size Decrease Print Page Send to Friend Add to Favorites

Swakopmund
Namibia, a country filled with vivid contradictions and stark beauty, is the home of the oldest desert in the world. It is here where the desert tumbles over towering dunes and meet a most tempestuous coastline of the South Atlantic Ocean.

A perfect location for a cultural getaway with a dash of adventure, there are dozens of exciting activities that one can pursue and one of the most relaxing has to be enjoying a breathtaking sunrise or the dramatic sinking of the sun into the sand at nightfall while taking a camel ride across the desert dunes.

A camel ride across the desert is also possibly one of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of Namibia without the restrictions in transporting water and luggage in any other mode of transport. The camels carry food, water, as well as any luggage, tents and sleeping bags that may be needed along the way. Experienced cameleer guides provide interesting information about the striking landscape and the friendly camels.

Explore the unspoiled landscape of the desert in Namibia and visit such sights as the Ostrich Valley, Valley of the Kings, Vulture’s Paradise, Long Dune, Valley of the Desert Fox or Camel Thorn Trees. This can be considered an adventure of a lifetime and an unforgettable experience.

Your camel ride across the desert on these creatures, who also known as the ships of the desert will without a doubt be one of bliss, if not luxury, but you will find a strange satisfaction and happiness while sailing through the desert with these peaceful animals
