From camel riding to camel glamping
Do you need to relax and recharge? Do you want a unique getaway idea for the weekend and holidays?

Kamahl and Marie from 'The Beltana Camel Experience', would like to let you know about their Camping with Camel experiences, Camel rides and Camel Safaris.

Operating at Beltana Station in the Flinders Ranges SA, Beltana Camel Experience offers a range of memorable experiences, from camel riding to camel glamping!

RIDES: Enjoy a 30 minute ride ($30 per Adult /$20 per child) or 1 hour ride ($50 per adult / $35 per child) at the homestead. This activity is a big hit with the kids and those want to get acquainted with a camel. A family discount is available for the one hour ride.

SAFARIS: The overnight safari is quite popular with families. They are perfect for a group weekend away! Enjoy campfires, fully catered bush camping, comfortable swags, stars and wild life. Book today!

As part of the safari experience, you will get to see the beautiful landscapes Beltana has to offer, from beautiful red sand dunes, wide gibber plains, dry creek beds, natural springs and rugged outback mountain ranges.

There's nearly half a million acres to cover, so every trek is unique. All camel safaris are fully catered and consist of produce grown on Beltana station. Beltana is the producer of some of South Australia's finest Saltbush lamb, Flinders wild goat, and Black Angus beef and they are all on the menu.

You could also opt for a feature trek, such as the 'Sand Dune YOGA camel trek' on the 25th-28th of August or the 'Tracks' camel trek in September 2016.

THE STATION: Beltana station is a fully working sheep and cattle station, so even if you are not interested in camels, there are plenty of reasons to come to Beltana. The station offers a range of different experiences, from the beautiful landscapes, scenic 4WD trails and rustic ruins, to bush camping, the free heritage Museum, petting zoo for the kids and camel carrot feeding.

Beltana also has a wide range of accommodation from caravan and camping, to the self contained heritage cottage. They also have powered and unpowered sites and exclusive bush camping.

Kamahl and Marie arrived at Beltana station with their camels after completing a 4 month 1200km charity camel trek from Alice Springs to Beltana. They created the "Compassion camel caravan" and raised money (over 160 swags) for the charity 'Swags for Homeless'. They caught their camels from the wild, trained them, built their camel wagon, promoted the charity, ran ads on TV, did countless sausage sizzles and then hit the road shaking the tin.

Beltana is only a day drive from Adelaide and is on bitumen until the last 7kms of the journey. You can join Kamahl and Marie and their wonderful camels for an intimate camel experience in the beautiful Flinders Ranges, by making contact at www.thebeltanacamelexperience.com or email info@thebeltanacamelexperience.com

Thanks for writing the article. A few weeks ago the website for Beltana Station wasn't working, so thanks for bringing this to my attention, now it is back up and working. Will my little 2wd car make it to the station and is the dirt road riddled with potholes?
