Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Welcome to Pyndan Camel Tracks, the only camel tour operator in Alice Springs. A camel ride against the backdrop of the beautiful West MacDonnell Ranges is a signature Red Centre experience. Owner Marcus Williams has worked with camels since 1982 and his camels are well trained.
