|This lil buddy was a Camel in Training, no one rode him as he was still small but he was learning to follow the rest :)|
We had the great opportunity of having a Camel ride on our holiday in Lanzarote. I was a little skeptical at first, only because I worry the animals are not looked after correctly and I wouldn't want to encourage that by paying them.
However, on our volcanic tour the rep told us how there are 300 camels there and only 100 are taken out at one time and work only for 4 hours a day. They only work one day (4 hours) and then have 2 days off whilst the next 100 camels do 4 hours the following day.
The camels are also protected by the government and get lots of food and water and are really well looked after!
We were given a few facts on the weight the camels can carry and how long they can go without water, really amazing creatures!
This is a thoroughly enjoyable ride at only 12 Euros. You can also purchase a picture they take of you for a further 5 Euro.
I will be continuing the next few posts with different reviews of the different trips I have taken in my time in Lanzarote. This will include the Submarine trip, Volancanic Trip, Aarons Diving Experience and the Texas Rancho Park.
