      Camel Ride and Unimog Safari

      Los Cabos, Mexico
      From (USD) $148 Per Adult (Minimum 2) / $109 Per Child
      • Off the beaten path: We’ll hit the off-road trails of desert Baja in an incomparable Mercedes-Benz’ open-air 4x4 Unimog. It’s an epic eco tour through ancient flora and untouched fauna with a guide whose commentary informs, inspires, and entertains.
      • Watch out, they spit: So says the Genie in Aladdin, anyway, but you’ll ride up high, safe and dry, on your 20 minute camel trek along a private, white-sand beach nestled between the lapping waves of the Pacific and the rugged terrain of Baja. In winter, watch for humpback whales offshore!
      • Deliciously authentic: Pull up a chair and sit down to a filling, ranch-style meal that reflects the very best of Mexican cuisine, including hand-made tortillas, rice and beans. Tequila and beer is thrown in for good measure. Olé!
      About This Los Cabos Tour

      Benz it and Sheik it any way you want to on what has become the “it” eco tour of Los Cabos and the most unique experience you’re ever likely to encounter! From a heart-thumping safari ride through the Mexican desert in one of our 4x4 open-air Unimogs to a gallumping stroll by camel’s back along a private, stunning beachfront, this is a wild oats adventure ready for sowing!

      It all begins with a transfer from your hotel to the heart of Baja, just north of Cabo, where you’ll board one of our extreme 4x4 open-air Unimogs. Keep your camera at the ready as you kick up some dust and channel Indiana Jones on your guide-driven off-road Mexican outback safari! The rich, earthy desert colors of Baja are unmatched, punctuated by hyperblue skies; ancient, unusual, and untouched plant life; and critters like the San Quintín Kangaroo Rat, Baja Rock Squirrel, Peregrine Falcon, Osprey, and Crested Caracara.

      Skidding to a stop at Rancho San Cristobál, be prepared to flick a mental switch from Indiana’s fedora to a Sultan’s turban as you’re welcomed by 4x4s of an altogether different sort. Though the camel is hardly native to Mexico, it seems that sand is sand and dunes are dunes to these desert dwelling dromedaries. Your guide will assist you onto the saddle, two to a camel, then lead you caravan-style on a breathtaking stroll down a long, private beach. The views are exotic and the ride relaxing as your camel takes you on a shoreline trek between the spectacular Pacific Ocean on one side and the wild Baja desert on the other. In the wintertime, humpback whales can even be seen cresting the waves nearby!

      Having worked up an appetite by this point, we’ll move on to a cool and lovely local ranch to dust off, wash up, and savor an authentic Mexican lunch. Served with freshly made tortillas and our own special recipe salsas, you’ll find it all quite appropriate for a tour that folds you, Don Quixote, and 1001 Arabian Nights into one spectacular, multicultural burrito!

      Hi Jolly, By Golly!

      Under the hammering pulse of American westward expansion, a military need arose for a beast of burden that could withstand the hot, harsh conditions. In answer, a caravan of camels and seven experienced handlers were shipped from North Africa to Texas in 1856. One of the trainers was Hadji Ali, soon affectionately dubbed “Hi Jolly” by the soldiers. Despite early success, the program ended with the Civil War; most camels were sold, the rest released to the plains. It was in 1883 that a “huge red beast with a mummy on its back” trampled an Arizona settler woman to death. Next, a party of prospectors awoke to hoofs, shrieks, and tents collapsed by a gigantic red-haired creature. More sightings emerged until, months later, another prospector took a shot at the reputed 30-foot-tall apparition, causing an object to fall from the rider as it bolted. It was a human skull, and The Legend of Red Ghost ignited. Years passed, the legend grew, and Hi Jolly set out unsuccessfully to capture what he alone seemed to know was a cavalry camel. A rancher eventually found and felled it, revealing the source of the animal’s odd aggression: tight, abrasive rawhide strips that had lashed a dead human body to its scarified back for more than a decade. (No one ever learned why). Hi Jolly died in 1902, so beloved by locals that they erected for him a pyramid tomb…topped by a camel silhouette.
