Camel Rides In Dubai

A trip to Dubai is complete with an authentic, Bedouin-style desert exploration. And what better way to do that than on the back of a camel, the ship of the desert? Camel riding is a sensory immersion into ancient traditions, breathtaking landscapes, and a chance to trade cityscapes for wind-whipped dunes.

Camel riding is a part of all Dubai desert safari packages and lasts a minute or two.

Camels usually accommodate two riders per seat, sitting sideways with a handler leading the animal.

Camel riding ticket options: 
Unlike other activities, Camel riding is short and part of most packages to connect visitors to the desert from the get-go. Although it is a short activity, there are different activities visitors can enjoy with these "ships" of the desert.

Classic Camel Ride: This 1-2 minute journey is your standard desert safari inclusion. Relax, soak in the scenery, and feel the rhythm of the dunes beneath you.

Camel Farm Visit: Go beyond the ride and visit a working camel farm! Learn about these fascinating creatures, see their routines, and even feed them. Add this as a pre-booked extra to your safari.

Double the Dunes?: Craving more camel time? Many safaris allow a second ride, often with a break in between. Check your package or ask about add-on options!

Standalone Camel Rides: Not planning a complete safari? You can book your camel ride session at the location with us!

Follow safety instructions:

Listen to your guide's instructions regarding mounting, dismounting, and camel behavior.

Dress appropriately: Wear comfortable clothing that covers your arms and legs to protect against sunburn and scratches. Sturdy shoes are essential for stability.

Hold tight: Firmly grip the provided handle or saddle during steep inclines or descents.

Be mindful of your belongings: Keep your valuables secure in a backpack or camera bag, as jostling can happen.

Don't rush: Take time to mount and dismount the camel and avoid sudden movements.

Respect the camels: Don't pull or hit them; they are sensitive creatures.

Stay hydrated: Dubai's desert sun can be intense, so drink plenty of water before and during your ride.

Inform your guide: If you have any medical conditions or concerns, inform your guide beforehand.

Pregnant women and young children: Consult with your doctor before considering camel riding if you are pregnant or have young children.

What is the weight limit for camel riding in Dubai?

The maximum weight limit is 120 kgs / 265 lbs. Please ensure you are physically healthy and capable of climbing into the saddle, balancing, and pulling yourself off the camel and back onto the ground before taking a camel ride.

Is camel riding ethical Dubai?

All of our camels are extremely well looked after. They live on a camel farm together and are only ridden twice a day, and get a break day every week. Our camels are cherished by our camel handlers and they are looked after like beloved pets.

How long do camel rides last?

Ride times can vary from 5 minutes each, where camels are forced to walk around in a circle for hours at a time, to 1-2 hour tours.

What clothes to wear for camel ride?

Loose-fitting, breathable clothing is ideal, allowing for a greater range of motion and flexibility. Opt for pants or long skirts rather than shorts or dresses, as these will protect your legs from rubbing against the camel's coarse fur. Avoid too tight or constricting footwear, as your feet may swell in the heat.

Why do they cover camel mouth?

Using a muzzle to cover the camel mouth can prevent bite injuries before they occur. Nile crocodile bites are more common during the hot season when the crocodiles are more active and grow quicker, the level of water is low, and the density of crocodiles and their water preys are high.
