The First of Its Kind
We started ADCRC in January 2021, with the aim to create a place that allows people and camels to meet.
The sheer number of camels in the United Arab Emirates is so large, yet, there wasn’t an official place, easily accessible for everyone, to learn about the animals, and train the skill of riding.
We invite the curious, the nervous, the ambitious, the jockeys, and the explorers, the young and old, to discover camels with us and help us to reshape the negative perceptions that exist around camels and camel riding.
we are guided by a strong set of values that shape our approach to camel riding and exploration. Our ethos is built upon a deep respect for camel welfare, a passion for adventure, a spirit of discovery and exploration, a commitment to slow travel, and a belief in the power of companionship. These values drive us in everything we do, ensuring an unforgettable and enriching experience for our riders and our camels alike.
5 Principles We Go By
Camels and the Environment
The majority of our camels are retired race camels, that retired due to age or lack of performance. Through the riding school, they can continue to be active and are cared for. We prioritise the well-being of our camels above all else. We believe in treating them with kindness, care, and respect.
Through the school, we educate on camel topics and raise awareness towards sustainable practices where we can.
Your dreams are our dreams
We once had a dream of a camel riding school, to teach and facilitate camel experiences. Share your dream with us and we will support you to make them happen. Through tailor-made classes and programs we are able to cater to each rider’s goals. Our classes and treks are designed to ignite a sense of excitement, courage, and personal growth.
Discovery and Exploration
We celebrate the thrill of discovery and the wonders of exploration. We believe that every journey is an opportunity to learn, expand our horizons, and gain a deeper understanding of the world and ourselves. Our camel riding school encourages riders to embrace curiosity, engage with local communities, and explore the natural landscapes with an open mind. We strive to create transformative experiences that foster a sense of wonder and appreciation for the world around us.
In a world that often moves at a frantic pace, we advocate for the beauty of slow travel. We believe in savoring each moment, immersing ourselves in the present, and taking the time to truly appreciate the journey. Our daily rides and treks encourage riders to disconnect from the rush of daily life and embrace a slower, more mindful way of traveling and moving. We value the moments of solitude, the connection with nature, and the simplicity of life on the trail.
We understand the power of human and animal connections. We foster an environment of camaraderie, friendship, and companionship among our riders, guides, and camels. We believe that shared experiences create lasting bonds and memories. Our camel riding school promotes a supportive and inclusive community where everyone feels valued, heard, and connected. Together, we forge friendships that transcend borders and create lifelong memories.
Absolutely amazing! Linda and her team have really created a one of a kind experience embracing all to give the opportunity of riding on these incredible animals. Clean, professional, easy to get to, and an overall amazing experience. I can not say enough and encourage all to learn more about the people behind this revolutionary endeavor!Sara Stevens

Fantastic to be able to learn how to ride such intriguing animals Super place to do it. I would highly recommend swimming with camels- absolutely super and very unexpected additional ability I never thought camels could do. Of note it is proper swimming, not wading or paddling!! It is very obvious that the team have great compassion and care for their camelsMartin Moody
I LOVE coming to Arabian Desert Camel Riding Center. Every time I get visitors from oversees, my favorite part of hosting is taking them to ADCRC for a camel ride through the desert. It is such an incredible experience, not 'touristy' at all, and our visitors love not only the camel ride, but also seeing the beautiful desert. I've also attended multiple track sessions where we learn how to ride and navigate the camel which is a lot of fun. The team always makes out time super special and I highly recommend ADCRC to everyone.Phyllice P
