Pyndan Camel Tracks. Daily one-hour camel rides are offered by this company at noon, 2:30, and sunset (each A$50). They explore a valley of diverse habitat about 15 km (9 miles) from Alice Springs and surrounded by the ancient MacDonnell Ranges. Half-day morning rides at 9 am (A$110) allow you to spend more time with your camel, discovering the Ilparpa Valley and stopping for morning tea in a sandy river bed. 0416/170164. www.cameltracks.com.
