Doñana camel routes: Take a walk on the wild side and roam atop a dromedary through Andalusia’s magnificent Donana Natural Park. This park is a huge extension of protected landscape and wildlife, rendering its beauty one of the purest and most natural in all of Andalusia’s arid lands. And what better way to explore this region than atop a dromedary: a docile albeit eccentric ride – definitely something your friends and family will want to hear about – that will make you feel even more connected to and in harmony with the nature around you.
Man has been riding dromedaries since ancient times. They are a very calm and attractive animal that is easy to tame. An expert will be with you at all times to teach you how to properly mount the golden creature. The ride is thought for all audiences; children squeal with delight as the dromedary rises them to the sky when it stands up. They are, in fact, such easy animals to mount, even people suffering from disabilities are able to enjoy it.
With this one-hour leisurely tour, be taken through the park’s vast grasslands. From atop a tall dromedary, you have a privileged vantage point of the incredible variety of wildlife that populates the area, the most special sight being that of the Iberian lynx, a large wild feline that is currently in extreme danger of extinction. Feel like an ancient sultan, like in a dream, as the dromedary soothingly totters deeper and deeper into the wild.
