Travel from Alice Springs on your adventure to the 'Red Centre', visiting the Outback Camel Farm on the way. Hear the tale of how camels arrived in Australia to serve as transport for construction and colonization. Take a short camel ride through the bush (at own expense), before traveling to the permanent campsite in Yulara. Late afternoon, wander the base of Uluru with a local guide and discover the hidden caves and ancient rock paintings depicting stories from the Dreamtime. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine as the sun sets over the countryside and the ‘rock’ changes color. Return to camp for a delicious dinner and end your night sleeping under the stars.

this was the best tour ever, our guide " Keith" was full of knowledge, the camping facility was the best, no crawling into a tent but walking into a nice little cabin with 2 single beds with blankets, pillows and towels waiting for us. The food was great. If you want to learn and discover what is central Australia this is the tour you need to take, from Uluru to Kings Canyon and everything in between, you wont regret any minutes. Everything was very well organise, good management of our time. No regret. I Highly recommended this tour.

The trip was very enjoyable and well organised. Our guide Matt was very knowledgeable , unfortunately on our way back to Alice Springs our bus got stuck in some sand and we were transferred onto another bus and were several hours late back in Alice Springs.
