Get a bird’s eye view of the Magnificent White River George as it rushes through the lush rain forest below, separating two parishes.
No doubt…you will hear tales of the “Buccaneers” as you view the channel between the two Islands known as the “Spanish Main” … this was the main route taken by ships en route to Spain from Central America.

At the Camel Park, trainers will give you a brief orientation and background on each of the camels you will be interacting with. While you wait to saddle up, feel free just to observe, cuddle or take your photo with one of the friendly camels. Experience an amazing Camel Trek trail with your new companion and see how docile and gentle your new friends are as you trek our amazing tropical Jamaican estate.
