On these overnight or 3-day treks you and I will travel the same Big Bend region of West Texas that the historic US Army Camel Experiment explored in 1857 on the Beale Expedition. While the US military scouted fort locations and searched this area for better supply routes to the US/Mexican border, the present day treks combine desert scenery, history and ecology with the colorful part the camels played in settling the West!
All treks include knowledgeable guides/cooks, tranquil nights sleeping out under the stars and endless photo opportunities in the Big Bend region of Texas.
Overnight in the Big Bend area, $750 per person, 3 guests minimum. 3-day trek in the Big Bend area, $1050 per person, 3 guests minimum.
“As the story of the Texas Camel Corps shows, Baum is a man who brings dreams to life.” — Texas Monthly
“Throughout our two-day, 11-mile trek, Doug and fellow guide Steven Evans talk about ranching heritage, geology and wildlife. We saunter past creosote bushes, ocotillo and lechuguilla. We stir up mule deer and javelinas.” — Texas Highways
“The trek is a classroom of sorts…” — Southern Living
“Some folks find camels to be aloof, with their snouts held so snootily in the air. Some find them clumsy and comical. But I find them irresistible.” — Texas Parks and Wildlife
