A camel ride on a Cape Town beach

Maybe you’ve read about Cape Town's gorgeous beaches or even been for a swim or a hike on one?

But have you ever thought of riding a camel along a pristine beach and through a nature reserve?

You don’t need a lot of time or any previous camel experience. Climb on board (hold tight and lean back), sit comfortably on your noble steed, then off you go.

You’ll ride along the beach between Noorhoek and Kommetjie taking in great views of Chapman’s Peak, the Lakes and Long Beach as you amble gently along.

Camels are notoriously moody beasts but the Imhoff Farm camels which originally came from the Kalahari are ‘sweeties’ according to owner Gartushka.

You don’t need a lot of time or any previous camel experience. Climb on board (hold tight and lean back), sit comfortably on your noble steed, then off you go.

She also says that visitors often develop a ‘special relationship’ with their camel so be prepared to bond with your large furry steed.

Rides last approximately 30 minutes and take place daily (weather permitting) between noon and 4pm.
