Camel Park is found just a ten minute drive out of Los Cristianos and consists of a charming farm and a restuarant/bar. There is a regular free bus from the southern resorts.
The park was started back in 1988 with 15 camels and was originally a camel breeding centre, based at Guaza. Five years later, the stock of animals had increased to 60 and camel treks were offered up the mountains around that village. It was in 1995 that the enterprise moved to its present location - an authentic Tenerife farm - and the camels found themselves sharing the limelight with goats, donkeys, hens, ducks, parrots and dogs.
One of the things this farm does for the community is welcome school visits. Every year, hundreds of children, along with their teachers, visit the farm. It can also be used as the venue for various celebrations, barbecues, birthday parties and other parties with shows, such as clowns, magicians and the like.
When you purchase an entrance ticket for the park, you are automatically eligible for a 20 minute camel ride. Bring your seasick pills, if you're prone to motion sickness!
The Camel Park also features a souvenir shop and a nice restaurant.
