GENERAL RIDING INSTRUCTIONS

The camel is a lovely and tame animal, however, certain care must be taken and instructions observed to make your ride as comfortable and safe as possible.


  • When mounting the camel lean back and make sure your saddle is comfortably fitted.
  • Hang your backpack on the saddle-front handle.
  • When the camel stands up or sits down lean back again and hold the reins (mori) tightly.
  • Always hold the reins when riding, as you will be rocked gently back and forth.
  • When turning right pull the right rein gently into the right direction, when turning left pull the left one to the left.
  • For galloping pull both reins together slowly and give it a slight kick on both sides with your legs.
  • To make the camel stop pull both reins backward quickly.
  • To make the camel sit down pull both reins and mouth the word "Jhu Jhu".
  • To get it walking again just pull the reins up again.

Our trained drivers will give you a demonstration of the above before the start of the trip. Never provoke a camel or give any sort of food to it!

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

  • A hat, cap or turban
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses
  • Long-sleeve shirt, long trousers, sneakers or other type of solid shoes. Remember, the sun is fierce!
  • Camera and film
  • Toilet paper and towel
  • Diary, pen, a book to read, cards or other games

  • A big smile and positive attitude.

Food and mineral water will be provided at all times. Our cooks use only mineral water when preparing meals. All the food is vegetarian and freshly prepared over campfire.

You do not need a sleeping bag, as you will be given clean bedrolls, which will keep you warm and protect you from the sand.

Remember to keep the desert clean and never leave any rubbish behind you.
