Camels and the desert go together like, well, camels and the desert! But who would have expected camels in Southern Utah where THIS desert and THIS species are hardly synonymous! Still, if you have never been up close and personal with or ridden a camel – even if you have – the Camel Safari attraction in nearby Mesquite, NV is certain to be an experience you’ll not soon forget. In addition to other activities, you can take a camel ride through the Nevada desert (led by a camel safari handler) with a tour of the ranch and the chance to meet “your” camel before you ride. There is also a camel encounter where you will learn everything you ever wanted to know about these amazing mammals with long legs, a big-lipped snout and a humped back. The one-hour event features cultural and historical information, including anatomy, personality and training. There will also be a chance to feed, pet and bottle feed a baby camel, when available.
This might be a different kind of experience, but certain to be fun in a new way. For more information or to schedule your Camel Safari, call 800-836-4036.
