What an amazing experience!! I joined the 5 day/5 night trek and it really was a trip of a lifetime. Karen and Paul our hosts welcomed us warmly and we felt "at home" instantly. The camels are so well treated and obviously very well cared for too. This adventure of riding these majestic animals over some of our most beautiful Australian landscape will stay with me forever. I highly recommend Camel Treks Australia to anyone who is looking to get away from it all and have a great time while being very well cared for and catered for. Thank you, Karen and Paul and your amazing team. xo

What a great experience offered in South Australia. Our group of 8 friends traveled to Beltana Station and enjoyed a 4 Day/4Night Camel Trek. We met Karen,Paul and their wonderful team of Cameleers and Camels. Each Camel had a unique personality and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them throughout the week.
Marla, Rasheeda and Molly are quite the girl gang, Tanami is the most gentle of giants and Zaki is a very cool dude. The Camels were treated with love and respect by the entire crew and are defiantly spoilt by Karen. Guests were invited to participate in the brushing, leading and saddling of Camels, a part of the experience i particularly enjoyed learning about.
With unexpected high winds and a little rain Karen and her team were proactive to ensure the safety of Camels, Crew and Guests were met.
A huge thank you to Karen, Paul and the Camel Treks Australia team for all the hard work put in prior to our trek, and for providing us all with an incredible experience.

It was an absolute pleasure hosting you and your lovely group of very accommodating friends. The camels loved you guys too. Thank you for being happy to be so hands on learning how to saddle and lead. I feel like with another week of trekking you could have all taken over the business!

Our group of 8 took part in the 4 Day/ 4 Night trek from Beltana Station - and what a great experience it was. Paul and Karen are very welcoming and knowledgeable and you will feel safe in their capable hands. When windy weather impacted our trip's itinerary, Karen made sure to include us all in changes. Working with everyone to ensure we had the best experience possible. Getting to know the camel's and their unique personalities was a highlight. They're intelligent animals who are beautiful to observe and interact with. Many appreciate a good neck scratch and all will appreciate your treats of mandarin peels and apple cores. The camels needs always came first - they are well cared for, treated with respect and have a trusting relationship with their handlers. It was an experience like no other and we're in awe of all the hard work that the cameleers put in to make our trip possible. Thank you to the team at Camel Treks Australia - it was a delight!

Two days home from a 4 day trek and I am missing the Camel Treks Australia team and the beautiful, cheeky, funny and majestic camels!

Our group of 8 had the pleasure of spending 4 days with Karen, Paul and the team exploring Beltana Station and learning about what it takes to be a cameleer. From brushing, feeding and popping saddles on to walking with the camels to find our next camp site - every day was an adventure.

One of the most unexpected elements was how much we all fell in love with the camels and their unique personalities. From sweet bootylicious Milly with her insatiable appetite, to cheeky young Zakki and Tanami with their youthful attitude - each camel made us laugh every day. There is so much love and care from Karen, Paul and the team towards the camels and you can see how much joy they get in providing a happy life for each of the camels.

Despite some weather challenges, the team went above and beyond working extremely hard to ensure we were as comfortable as possible.

Our final day was by far one of the highlights! Dirt biking and 4-wheel driving around the sand dunes was incredible!!

We cannot express in enough words our thanks to Karen, Paul and the team for our 4 day adventure. Thank you!! We miss you all but we will be sure to come back and see you all soon!

Hello Clare ,
Thank you for taking the time to review us. It was a delight to meet you all, we were also sad when you left. The camels truly enjoyed your group as much as we did, and I can tell from your review that you really got to know their personalities very well. I hope that you are Luke are able to head back for some more dirt bike riding practise in the future. You are all welcome back anytime!
Warmest,
Karen

This review is for the 4 day/night Camel Trek from Beltana Station . First and formost, the owners and crew of Camel Treks are amazing. Paul and Karen are dedicated to the camels. Make no mistake, happy and healthy camels make friendly camels. This in turn makes for happy guests. The spectacular views, inovative campfire meals by Fench chef Julian and the new camp sites every night in our swags and under the stars just added to the enjoyment of riding these spectacular animals. I could continue, but most of what I would write has already been written in the last three reviews by my fellow camel trek riders.
