Once upon a camel ride

Garden Route 20161224 - Camel Ride 01
Camel ride at Wilgewandel Holiday Farm in the Western Cape

My little girl feels absolute security with her daddy.

There is security in numbers. I would have been more scared had I taken a solo ride. Honestly, I was too unsure to hold my daughter and she would not have felt secured. What can I say, I’m not brave and my adventurous spirit has restrictions.

I did finally feel safe enough halfway through and enjoyed the ride in the end. πŸ™‚

      1. Haha πŸ™‚ Never easy to look graceful on a camel. We have a large camel population here, in fact I believe it’s the world’s largest feral population of camels anywhere. I remember riding one when I was about 9 years old … I’ve had opportunities elsewhere to try it again but once was enough πŸ™‚

      2. Hahaha. Except for Charlotte, SATC made it look so posh. That’s what I’m looking for. πŸ˜‚
        That’s interesting. I would never have thought you’d have a lot of camels there.

  1. Time to try a horse now. As for a camel ride, go to Morocco and ride one out into the desert to see the sun set. Can’t be beat apparently

    1. I was quite scared. I didn’t immediately realize how high/tall the camels were. I was so awkward when my camel first stood up. Do try it and don’t let the horse experience discourage you. I’m still to ride a horse and I should really do it asap before I get too anxious and petrified to give it a go.


    1. When were you there last? I think he’s still there. Haha! Oudtshoorn, the area, is lovely. It just looks like there’s not much happening there. I really like the Western Cape. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find a job there. *grin*

      1. The biggest Afrikaans cultural festival returns to the charming streets of Oudtshoorn for the 23rd time this year. The Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK) turns the sleepy town into a colourful and chaotic melting pot of performance, theatre, sound and visual art from Saturday, 8 to Saturday, 15 April 2017.
        This seven-day multi-platform festival affair features cutting-edge theatrical productions, concerts, kids’ entertainment, dance performances and visual art installations that bolster appreciation for locally relevant and produced arts and culture in post-apartheid South Africa.

      2. Oh awesome! I wish it weren’t so far… or I weren’t so far. There was also the Annual Literary Festival in Knysna last month. I would have loved to go. The Cape gets the art festivals.
