Camel Ride in the Beach (Yes. Why NOT?)

Last time when I visited Bali with my friends, we have this idea to take an opportunity trying to ride Camel on the beach. Yes, you read it right! The Camel Ride is not only happened in the dessert, now, if you are curious about it and want to have a different adventure with another view of background, you can go to Nusa Dua, Bali and enjoy the Camel’s riding.

The idea of Camel’s ride formerly only for the pre-wedding photography shoot. I already knew about this since years ago when I went to a wedding and see the couple’s picture taken on a beach with camels, I was having the question in mind, where did they do the photo shoot?


Later on, when we prepared our trip to Bali, my friend gave this idea to do this cool activity. We said YES, because we were curious and never had this experience before. Skip about the pre-wedding pictures, we didn’t need it yet (ah yes, sure :P) but imagine ourselves having the pictures could be a pretty idea too.


Camel ride is located at Niko Hotel, Nusa Dua, Bali. The area actually located inside of the Niko Hotel but it is 100% separated from the Hotel’s Management. To go there, they provided you the hotel’s pick up and once you arrived to the hotel’s lobby, their crew already waited for you to show the way, since it’s kind of not allowed for non-hotel guest to walk around inside the hotel.

We took the package for 30 minutes camel ride for IDR 275.000 (around USD 23)/person including hotel pick up and drop to our hotel in Seminyak. Please keep in mind that you have to be strictly on time because so many people want to do this riding, or so many couple want to do the photo shoot. Don’t forget to use the sun-cream, since Bali’s sun is famous with the bright light and easy to burn your skin. I got so tan when I was there!

Then, enjoy the ride!

My first impression of this camels was a bit shock because they made such a weird sound! Also lots of saliva comes from their mouth made me feel a bit loss of appetite. Camel has this habit to spitting a lot. It was my first experience so I was a bit nervous. Then I brave myself to climb the shoulder of the camel. I still remember, her name is Sahara. And well, for your info, the camels not from Arab but from Australia. The guy who hold the camels told us the Australians camels have 2 seats on their shoulders, so can be rode for 2 person comfortably, while Arab camels only have 1.

Camel’s skin is totally different with the Elephant. It’s not so rough as I thought before and so comfort to ride! The riding felt like a mother swinging you upon her back. The 30 minutes riding considered quite short, but the price worth it. While enjoying the ride through the Nusa Dua beach (Niko hotel area) with the wind touched our face and the bright sun, the guy helped us to take the pictures and he was a good one!

If you get bored with the routine activity in Bali and want to have something different, try the Camel Ride and make a good picture of yourself (and your loved ones) for the sweet memory.
