Why not go shopping or have lunch in one of the restaurants around Meloneras or the Faro Shopping Center (lighthouse)?

Peter C.December 2023

Nice experience

Nicola H.November 2023

Special. I had never ridden a camel so it was a different experience and the ride was very calm

Richard B.November 2023


Linda P.October 2023

You need to follow the indications stated on the reservation voucher, otherwise finding the site will be impossible. We went early and were able to ride in the first caravan. It was very nice.

Johan N.October 2023

Good organization but you have to follow the instructions of the voucher for the schedules, so you don't have to wait, and to figure out how to get there

Karen B.October 2023

Regular. The ride was pleasant but there isn't much to see during the tour.

Victoria E.October 2023

A family experience. We went with our children aged 1 to 7 and they organized everything so we could all go in the same caravan

Jannete R.September 2023

Good experience. Although there isn't much to see and the caravan goes quite slowly, the experience was quite enjoyable

Toni W.September 2023

Everything was good. The camel caravans leave every 15 minutes and although we had to wait for our turn, it was worth it.

Henrik T.September 2023

Very cool. The camel drivers are very friendly and the tour was pleasant

Megan D.August 2023

We were 5 people in our group and my husband, who weighs more than 110 kilos, couldn't ride. It's stated in the FAQs, but they should add that information on the reservation voucher

Paul C.August 2023

Even though the camel caravan leaves every 15 minutes, if you come at 11:00 you'll have to wait. Still, it was worth it.

Carla F.August 2023

Disappointing. It's not in the Maspalomas Dunes. The ride is through the Dunes National Park, but it doesn't go between them.

Kirsty M.August 2023

Amazing. I went with my 4-year-old son and we had a great time.

Lucy T.July 2023

We loved it

Karen W.July 2023

We went at 9:00 as we were told and didn't have to wait at all to get on the camels. Then we took the chance to spend the day at Maspalomas beach. So everything was great.

Helen S.July 2023

We loved the ride and also noticed that the camels were well cared for.

David B.July 2023

I didn't think it would be so relaxing.

Jamie W.June 2023

A nice camel ride

Marc E.June 2023

Well organized although it's hard to find

Katherine B.June 2023

Riding a camel near the Maspalomas Dunes makes you feel like you're in the desert

Andrea S.May 2023

The camels are well cared for which was my main concern and the camel ride through the dunes was enjoyable

William M.May 2023

You feel like you're in the Saharan desert

Sarah Z.May 2023

Ideal as a family plan. It was cheap and my kids really enjoyed it.

Jack D.April 2023

Luckily the information to find the site was on the reservation voucher because it's very poorly signaled. Good service.

Allan V.April 2023

The tour is fine, it's enough for an enjoyable experience, but we arrived at 11:30 and had to wait

Kenneth F.February 2023

Even though the camel caravan leaves every 15 minutes, if you come at 11:30 you'll have to wait. Still, it was worth it.

All fields are needed



Are there any restrictions for camel riding?
Only people who weigh up to 110 kg may go.

Are there any age restrictions?
There are no age restrictions. Babies and children up to 3 years old go on the ride accompanied by their mother or father.

Can people in wheelchairs do the ride?
Yes, no problem. If the person is unable to take a few steps from the wheelchair to reach the camel, he or she is lifted in order to sit on the camel.

What are your hours of operation?
Everyday from 9:00am till 3:00pm. Last ride at 2:30pm.

How long does the camel ride last?
30 minutes

How often do the camel trips leave?
Every 15 minutes

What kind of health care do the camels receive?
All of our animals are healthy and strong. We do not have sick animals working. Their health can be easily checked. Camels are ruminants and are ruminating for around 17 hours each day. A camel that does not ruminate like this is indisposed or sick.

Our camels also have their own veterinarian. All are registered with the Canary Islands government in the Department of Animal Health, where the status of the camels can be checked.

All of our animals have a microchip (which is not required) and are checked every year.

Each year run blood tests and a tuberculosis test are run by the Canary Islands’ official veterinarians, and they are also dewormed every two months.

How long do the camels work?
The camels are ready to work between 9:15 and 15:45. We have 35 working animals and the work is divided among them all. While some go for a ride, the others rest until their turn. In July, August and the Holy Week, the rotation may be greater, but during the rest of the year they do about three or four 30 minute rides.

How many kilos can these camels carry?
The camels we have are pack animals, not bred for racing, and they weight between 450 – 700 kilos. They can easily carry between 250 and 300 kilos, and we choose each camel based on the client, leaving the youngest and strongest for the heaviest clients, and the older camels for the lightest people. However, the maximum weight for riding a camel is 100 kilos per person.

Why do the camels wear muzzles?
It is required for all camels to wear muzzles, and we put them on very loose so as to not cause injury. None of these animals has a broken lip because of the muzzle, but rather because all camels have a split upper lip. It is their morphology. The split lip helps camels to eat thorny plants like Cactus, Acacias and other spiny plants without getting hurt.

Can two people ride if our weight is very different?
Yes. The weight of the two people is always balanced by adding sand bags around the person who weighs less so that the camel carries the same weight on both sides.

How can I get there?
We explain how to get there in the voucher.
