The camel is a lovely and tame animal, however, certain care must be taken and instructions observed to make your ride as comfortable and safe as far as possible. When mounting the camel lean back and make sure you are comfortable in your saddle. Hang your backpack on the saddle knob. When the camel stands up or sits down, lean back again and hold the mori tightly. Always hold the reins when riding, as you will be rocked gently back and forth. When turning right pull the right rein gently in the right direction, when turning left pull the left one to the left. For galloping pull both reins together slowly and give the camel a slight kick on both sides with your legs. To make the camel stop pull both reins backward quickly. To make the camel sit down pull both reins and mouth the word “Jhu Jhu”. To get it walking again just pull the reins up again. Should you wish to receive a demonstration of the above before the start of the trip, please just ask our trained camel rider. Never provoke a camel or give it any sort of food.
