Uluru Camel Express, Sunrise or Sunset Tours

2 travellers
Select tour language
Contemplate how the outback pioneers traveled across regions of Australia on a camel tour with an expert guide. 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 you’re short on time, take a morning or afternoon express camel ride for a taste of central Australia’s traditional transport. Along the way, your expert cameleer provides information about the desert’s 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 Australia’s remote outback regions.
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off makes for a seamless experience
  • Multiple options allow you to customize your tour
  • Included beverages and snacks on some tours let you travel light

We had a great evening!, Camels were very amusing. Well organised & friendly staff. The only thing was we couldn’t really hear what the guides were saying on the tour but other than that it was an enjoyable night out.

Amazing people! Was by far one of my favorite things we did at Uluru. Ladies were really helpful and loads of fun! I loved my camel Buddy! He gave me the best cuddle at the end. Damper was yummy and wine was a great end to the adventure.
