Maspalomas Sand Dunes

The Maspalomas Sand dunes have recently been awarded the status of a natural protected area covering over 400 hectares. In the year 2004 the camel ride was officially declared a cultural heritage of the community of San Bartolomé de Tirajana.

Manolo, Pepe, Roberto, TT, Macho, Daniel and Sofia are just some of the 35 camels and their experienced Saharan guides who will take you through this beautiful and unusual landscape.

The trip is both enjoyable and hilarious and is around 30 – 35 minutes long. It is suitable for all ages and children under 3 ride free, sat on an adults knee. The camels are well looked after and have comfortable 2 seater saddles so you don’t have to ride on the hump!

Is a short ride, and thanks God was shot, I felt bad for the camel's. The experience is once in a lifetime, getting in touch with this beautiful animals and have a taste of what a caravan ride feels like in a desert is something you need to check on your bucket list. You will see 3% of the desert, so prepare yourself for a separate trip to enjoy the desert.

Very enjoyable camel ride. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of sign posts, so you will need Google maps to find the way or ask for directions.

Good place, the tours are still on and frequent enough with two "caravans", we didn't have to wait much. The staff is friendly and helpful. You need to have coins to buy drinks from the vending machines (change is possible), there two tents with concrete sitting all around for those who don't ride. The chairs are as comfortable as seen on the images 🙂
