Mongolian camel journey

Modernisation has been a blessing in many ways, but across many countries this has seen a decline in camels being utilised and more importantly camel skills are not being passed onto the next generation. Camel cultures are important to keep alive otherwise the camel will become obsolete.

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!

“I already had some experience with my own camels however, this Trust Based Camel Training gave me a complete insight into the psychology of these amazing creatures. We were walked through the steps of taming and training an un-handled camel in just a few days. I now have more confidence in handling my own camels. I can encourage anyone who wants to learn more about camels to take part in this training as it will change your life and build a camel connection that will last a lifetime.”

Who Are We and Why Trust Us?

 

When the idea of journeying to Mongolia to train camels and their handlers was presented to us we expressed the importance of respecting and understanding the cultural heritage of camels in Mongolia. There is a reason that things are done the way they are done and we deeply respect that.

 

We’re not out to convert old traditions to newer ways of being around or thinking about camels. We are westerners entering into a whole new culture which we can only grasp in the slightest way.

 

We’re holding this Camel Training Camp for an incredibly unique opportunity for people like you who want to join us in training bactrian camels in the Camel Connection Trust Based Camel Training method.

 

We will be working together as a team, with you and the other camel enthusiasts, to help creature not only a working relationship with the camels, but also a strong bond of trust and mutual respect. This will all play a significant role in the success of the camel’s new ownership upon our departure. 

 

We’ve teamed up with experienced expeditioner herself, Tamar Valkenier, who spent 4 months trekking (with one camel, horse & dog) through the Mongolian Altai mountains, amongst many more of her experiences.

What qualifies us to teach…?

Tara Lea Russell Osborne

Along our camel journey we’ve learnt many things, often the hard way, which makes us determined to share all the camel information that we know with you through training camps such as this unique trip to Mongolia.

 

We specialize in helping new camel enthusiasts get comfortable with their new found wooly friend, learn how to handle, train, bond with and care for their camel(s).

 

We’ve worked with camel handlers in Thailand, Mongolia, India, USA and Australia teaching our camel training & handling method.

 

We’ve also had an array of experience working in and managing…

Riding Operations
Camel Trekking
Camel Expeditions
Running Camel Training Courses Australia Wide & Internationally
Camel Management & Farming
Camel Expeditioners
Tourism Operations
Camel Consultants
Mentor’s for other Camel Business Owners
