Arabian Desert Camel Riding Center

ADCRC is the first licensed camel riding center in Dubai, and in the region, dedicated to train riders in the skills of camel riding and handling, following traditional forms of riding and modern adaptation, incorporating aspects of animal welfare, education and of course Arab hospitality.

At the core of the center stands an ambition to redefine stereotypes around camels and reignite a passion for camel culture.
We love to see our students learn, thrive and explore, and diving into simplicity and tranquility, that is the core of working with camels.

Located in the heart of the Dubai’s camel farm district, our center offers a unique opportunity to experience the traditional Emirati way of transportation – camel riding.

Our experienced instructors will guide you through the basics of camel riding and teach you about the fascinating history and culture of camels in the UAE. Whether you’re a first-time rider or an experienced equestrian, our camels are well-trained and friendly, making for a safe and enjoyable ride.

But camel riding is not just a leisure activity – it’s also an important part of Emirati culture and heritage. Camels have played a vital role in the history and development of the UAE, and continue to be a symbol of the country’s resilience and strength.

At the Arabian Desert Camel Riding Center, we’re proud to share this rich cultural heritage with our students and visitors. So come join us for an unforgettable experience that will leave you with a deeper appreciation for Emirati culture and a newfound love for these magnificent creatures.
