Where to go Camel Riding on Tenerife

The idea of going on a camel ride on Tenerife might seem a bit odd at first. What has Tenerife got to do with camels?

The answer is quite a lot. For a start, the Canary Islands are not far from North Africa where jumping on a camel is considered the norm. Also the arid climate of the south of wasn’t really suited to using cattle so, before mass tourism changed their world, it was common for local farmers to use an animal more suited to a water deprived terrain; the camel.
