Camels are generally associated with Asian or African countries. However, it is a well known fact that kids like nothing better apart from a ride on a camel’s back. Why do you not plan your trip in such a way that you do not have to venture far from Europe and yet enjoy the fun that only camels can provide? Just close your eyes and imagine a camel kissing you. This is possible if you visit Tenerife. This isle is famous worldwide for its perpetual temperate climate and for its enthralling sceneries. It is also famous for some exotic parks including the Camel Park.
This park, set in rural surroundings, is just a couple of minutes from Playa de la Americas and Los Cristianos. Apart from enjoying a fabulous time riding and playing with the camels, you can meet typical farm animals as well. You should keep in mind that riding a camel might cause you to suffer from sea sickness, hence you should not attempt it immediately after breakfast or lunch. Since the climate becomes hot during the afternoon, it is suggested that you plan your ride early in the day. The entire trip lasts approximately sixty minutes.
This park also boasts of a souvenir shop from where you can purchase camel figures and other presents. You should remember to take your camera along with you as you are likely to come across sights that you will remember for a lifetime. At the end of the day, you are your family members can partake some excellent local food available at a local restaurant known as El Cerro de la Luna.
This park is open daily from 10am to 5pm and free transportation is available from the south of the island. So pack your bags and prepare for the journey to Camel Park. (photo:Akyan)
