The Only US Camel Trek

DougonCincoBack in the 1800’s, the US Army experimented with the idea of using camels instead of horses to cross the Western frontier. One of our newest adventures pays tribute to that successful military trial and introduces participants to the land crossed by soldiers long ago.

Our Texas Camel Trekking Adventure takes place in the Big Bend region of West Texas and is ideal for two couples or a family of four.  Easily customizable, the adventure is a photographer’s dream.

Sample Itinerary

Day One: Fly into Midland or El Paso, Texas, rent vehicle and make the three-hour drive to Marfa, Texas, population 1800. Overnight in selected accommodations. Choose to stay at a remote 30,000 acre ranch, in the historic hotel featured in the classic movie “Giant”, or in a teepee, camper, yurt or safari tent.

Day Two: Meet your guide and the camels in the morning. Trek about two miles into the desert before breaking for lunch. Continue on, riding camels and hiking on foot until reaching a special remote campsite, where dinner will be waiting. Overnight in provided tents or sleep out under the stars.

Day Three: After breakfast, make the two-hour camel ride back to Marfa. Time to explore the scenic Texas town popular with artists and celebrities. (Marfa is known worldwide for its art exhibits and overall quirkiness.) Overnight in the accommodations you’ve selected.

Day Four: Depart Marta for the airport or continue your exploration of the Big Bend area of Texas. (Fans of star gazing may wish to visit the McDonald Observatory, less than an hour away.)

Program Notes

Camping is optional.  The itinerary can be modified so trekking takes place near ranch or hotel accommodations.  Optional program add-ons include ATV riding, arts tours, glider flights and stargazing events.

Cost

Pricing is based on the number of participants, lodging selection, optional add-ons and time of year. For planning purposes, ballpark pricing ranges from $3850 to $6900.
