Mongolian Camel: Lessons We Learnt

Mongolian camel Tara Lea Russell Osborne

One thing we know for certain is that life is a continuous cycle of learning, especially when working with animals. 


Every camel course, event and trek we do, without fail, we learn something new about the animals that we are so blessed to learn from and work with.


We have our ‘foundation training’ we teach and work within at every event we hold, but one thing can NEVER be learnt in full and that is the millions of different camel personalities that exists and how to adjust training & handling to suit a particular individual (camel). That’s why so many of you keep coming back for more courses and events with us – the learning is endless (and addictive)! 


Camels are like humans in that sense, and often it surprises people, that every camel has a completely different personality. 


In this podcast episode we’re sharing all the noticeable, and not so noticeable, learnings from working with, training & handling the Bactrian camels in Mongolia.


Tune in now to hear how we came across the opportunity (as Australian’s who’ve never seen a bactrian camel before) to work with & train bactrian camels in Mongolia. 


And the amazing (and sometimes hard lessons) we had to learn like the first noticeable difference in the training & handling of the bactrian camels and the adjustments and adaptations we had to make.
