Please remember that ADE does not operate camel riding safaris - all the surveys are walking experiences in remote areas assisted by our team of OCC packcamels. You could describe these surveys as the ultimate desert walking experience, as we are able to access areas that no one else visits.

 

On a survey your active participation is essential and you will be asked to contribute to the operation of your trek or expedition, assisting our cameleers with the daily tasks. The comprehensive pre-departure information will help to ensure that you are well prepared for the enriching experience of working with the camels. Duties would include shepherding them in the mornings & evenings whilst they feed and, under the supervision of the cameleers, helping to saddle the camels and load the equipment. Your cameleers cook all the meals on the campfire but help from aspiring chefs is always welcome!

 

The spirit of the day is determined by the pace of travel of the camels, geographical features & obstacles. So it is important to be prepared to meet the desert on its own terms and adjust to 'desert time'.

 

Don't be concerned if you have never trekked with camels before. We have many first timers on our trips who know next to nothing about camels when their trek or expedition departs, but by the end of the trip are totally enamoured by the experience of working with, and walking alongside, these incredible animals.

DUE TO THE ONGOING COVID RELATED TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

IN AUSTRALIA WE ARE YET TO DETERMINE WHAT OUR

2022 & 2023 SURVEY SCHEDULE WILL LOOK LIKE

LET'S HOPE THAT WE CAN ALL TRAVEL SAFELY AGAIN SOON!
