4 x 4 Camel Safari

Camel Park

Situated near Chayofa, North of Los Cristianos.

This excursions starts off in the village of Vilaflor, which is the highest village on the island. The village is surrounded by pine forrests and the economy is still based on agriculture, mainly wine and potatotes. There is a medieval church and lots of white washed houses. Vilaflor was the location of the first hotel in Tenerife, a rural hotel which is ideal for couples seeking a romantic secluded break.

On this excursion you can visit Mount Teide next, the famous volcano which is over 12,000 feet high. The higher you go, the more the amount of greenery deceases, until you end up in a barren landscape (which have been used for a lot of films for this reason). The whole area is now part of a National Park, which means that it is protected from development.

Finally, the excursion finishes with a visit to a Camel Park where you can experience a ride on the back of a camel. The climate in Tenerife is very suitable for camels, as it is very desert like. In the past the camel was used in Tenerife for the transport of people and cargo as well as for tilling the land. This Camel Park was the first camel breeding centre, beginning with 15 camels on a banana farm in Guaza in 1988 and ending up with 60 camels by 1993. There are also many farm animals to see here including ducks, donkeys, goats and hens.

In the 16th and 17th centuries is used to be the main trading harbour with banana steamers and sailing boats, which would transport Malvasia wine and sugar cane. It became a very important port due to it’s naturally deep harbour.

But Garachico has known devastation in the past, but somehow has managed to pick itself up and rise to new heights.

In 1645 there was a huge landslide caused by heavy rains, which destroyed 40 ships and killed over 100 people. But Garachico recovered, but a worse disaster was to follow.

In 1706 Mount Teide erupted sending a molten lava flow down towards Garachico. Luckily the flow was slow enough to allow the townsfolk to evacuate on horseback and on foot. The trade was re-established in Puerto de la Cruz to the East. Today the main trade in Garachico in agriculture, mainly banana plantations.
