Training & Buying Camels in India

You’ll be learning our Camel Connection Trust Based Camel Training™ method, in India in a rural village with the Raika [camel] people who are known for their strong bonds with their camels.

With help from local villagers we will be selecting and buying (gifting) camels for the Rakia community to utilise once we have trained the camels over a period of 4 days. This will involve, training the camels in basic commands and eventually riding (depending on male or female) and most importantly building a strong foundation of mutual trust and respect.

Part of the training will be walking the camels, 100km, for 3 days through rural Indian villages to get to the famous Pushkar Camel Festival. Just Imagine all the adventure!

Who Are We and Why Trust Us?

When the idea of journeying to India to train and gift camels to sustain a community came to us we deeply understood the importance of respecting and understanding the cultural heritage of camels in india. In India, Camels are the symbol of love (for obvious reasons if you’ve been around camels before). This alone made us deeply honoured to be welcomed into local villages to work ‘with’ them to help secure their future with camels and “Changing the world, one camel at a time” through empowering camel ownership.

We’re holding this Camel Training Camp & Journey to India for people like you who want to join us in training camels in India through the Trust Based Camel Training™ method and gift these camels to sustain a community. We will be working together as a team, with you and the other camel enthusiasts, to help create a working relationship with the camels, but also a strong bond of trust and mutual respect.
