It’s a spiritual safari for Australian Muslims, many of whom have never being out of the city before. Participants learn how to camp on the desert sands, wash without water and how to tell prayer times by the sun and stars. Learning how to bond with your camel is all part of this spiritual adventure too! Sydney-based Imam Afroz Ali organises these treks every few years in South Australia’s remote Flinders Ranges. It’s a transformative experience for all including the two non-Muslim camel guides who know little about Islam when start out.
