Camel Riding Operation Behind the Scenes

Camel Riding business operation

Are you considering owning and operating a camel riding operation and or camel business for yourself? Or maybe you’re just interested in what it takes to get such an operation occurring on a daily basis? Maybe you just want a sneak peak into our daily lives when we conduct our beach camel rides…? Then this video of our behind the scenes of our beach camel riding operation is for you!

If you’ve been reading our blogs, following us or know us in person by now you’ll know that we don’t ‘fairy coat’ anything that we do and we are very transparent. We’re not going to lie – this kind of operation is HARD work. It’s physically (and therefore mentally) demanding and we’re positive that this type of work gives us ‘body builder’ strength. There’re days where we don’t think we can do it and energy levels are low, but mostly, we keep on keeping on.

When the work on the beach is done, there’s still work at home making sure the camels are well cared for. Our ‘days off’ still ask for jobs to be done. Anyone that has animals knows the demands they place on ones life. We think its a sacrifice all animal owners make – one well worth all the effort too!

We take you ‘behind the scenes’ for a peak of how we operate our professional camel riding operation on the beach in Lakes Entrance (Victoria, Australia). See from day start to day end on the work that’s involved in getting our camels ready for their days work taking people for rides along the famous 90 Mile Beach.

The camels have work – yes, but their owners (that’s us!) also have their work cut out for them from sun up to sunrise.

    always enjoy seeing beautiful animals along side of us. Do you have any advice re acquiring # 3 bullocks to add to my 5 camels as I am planning g a wagon trek from Hermannsburg to home at Taree

    We are looking into possibly starting a small trek ride, similar to what you are doing on your beach rides. Currently run a whitetail deer and elk ranch in the US and have about 30,000 people visit in a 3 month season. Thinking that camels might possibly be a good addition. Any info or help you could give us would be great.
