Camel rides

Imhoff Farm is the only destination around Cape Town where you have the opportunity to ride a camel, either for a short roundabout experience, or a longer ride through a tranquil natural area with stunning views.

Short roundabout camel rides are R40 per child (under 12), and R60 per adult and there is no need to pre-book the short rides. The camels are resting on Mondays, else open daily including public holidays and of course weather permitting.

Book a long camel ride through the farm and nature reserve, with spectacular views over Longbeach, Noordhoek and Chapman’s peak to Hout Bay.

Long rides of 45 minutes are priced at R250pp are offered between 12:00 – 16:00, advance booking is essential using the booking facility below.

Please note there is a weight limit of 80 kg, and riding is not suitable for children under 4 years old.

2 new Camels have arrived at Imhoff Farm!

On the 6th of September two new young camels arrived at the farm. After a long drive of almost 20 hours covering more than 900 km they finally arrived, two very tired camels!
The two young ones were welcomed by Izak, Ligman and Barak who immediately surrounded them protectively and proceeded to take them on a tour of the farm.

Coming from the desert conditions of the Kalahari Imhoff Farm is a true Garden of Eden for camels. They could not believe their eyes seeing the lovely high green grass, in fact they were not interested in the lucerne we offered them and ate only grass for the first couple of days.

The very next day they were called to start working. Everything was new to them and they had a lot to learn. Luckily camels are very clever animals and having three older camels show them how it is done makes it really easy to work with them.

Rambo and Jabulani are proud to be part of the small camel herd at Imhoff Farm and will be offering rides to children until they grow big and strong enough to take adults.
