Pyramids of Giza Camel Rides Overview

Giza camel rides are a must-do experience for any visitor to Egypt. Riding a camel through the desert sand, with the iconic pyramids of Giza in the background, is an unforgettable sight.

Here are some of the highlights of Giza camel rides:

  • See the pyramids from a unique perspective. Riding a camel gives you a bird’s-eye view of the pyramids, allowing you to appreciate their sheer size and scale. You’ll also be able to get up close and personal with these ancient wonders, something that’s not possible on foot.
  • Experience the Bedouin way of life. Camel riding is a centuries-old tradition in Egypt, and the Bedouin people are experts at navigating the desert landscape. Your Bedouin guide will share their knowledge and culture with you, giving you a glimpse of what it’s like to live in the desert.
  • Enjoy the peace of the desert. The Giza Plateau is a bustling tourist destination, but a camel ride can take you away from the crowds and into the tranquility of the desert. It’s the perfect place to relax and reflect on the experience of seeing one of the world’s most iconic landmarks.

What a fantastic day! The Camel Ride at Giza Pyramids tour exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Amr, was not only knowledgeable but also patient with all our questions. Riding camels near the pyramids was like a dream come true. The camels were well-trained and gentle. Exploring the pyramids up close was awe-inspiring. The traditional Egyptian lunch was a delightful surprise. I’d do this tour again in a heartbeat!

Yeehaw! Me and my two besties, Brenda and Barb, just rode camels through the Giza sands like modern-day Bedouins! We booked a group tour, and let me tell you, it was a hoot. Our camels were gentle giants, and the guides were full of jokes and stories about the pyramids. We got epic photos, learned tons about ancient Egypt, and even shared some laughs with a family from Oklahoma. Talk about a memory to hold onto forever!

“Our Giza camel ride was a blast! As a group of eight friends traveling Egypt, we wanted a unique experience, and this definitely delivered. We opted for the sunrise tour, and it was magical watching the pyramids come alive with the first light of day while gently swaying from atop our camels. The guides were friendly and informative, sharing interesting facts about the pyramids and the surrounding area. Plus, they took some hilarious photos of us pretending to be pharaohs. Highly recommend this for a memorable adventure with your buddies!”

My husband, Michael, and I planned our honeymoon around one thing: riding camels at the Pyramids. It was even more magical than we imagined! We embarked on a private tour just as the sun was setting, casting long shadows across the ancient stones. Our camels were led by a friendly Bedouin, who even let us take turns steering. We felt like explorers from another time, hand-in-hand amidst the golden dunes. Honestly, it was the most romantic experience of our lives.

Okay, so I admit it, I’m a sucker for adventure. So when I found myself solo in Egypt, a camel ride at the Pyramids was a no-brainer. Forget tour groups, I snagged a local guide and ventured into the desert like a modern-day Indiana Jones (minus the fedora, sadly). We rode for hours, the sun warming my face and the wind whipping through my hair. I felt like I was in a movie, except the only treasure I discovered was the endless beauty of the Sahara.
