Senior guide - Lyn Gee
Lyn Gee joined Explore the Outback camel safaris in 2005
and has shown herself to be a competent bushwoman in every respect.
Nothing is too hard for Lyn and her connection with the camels is
Hailing from Queensland, Lyn cut her teeth in South Australia's
outback at the Baxter immigrant detention centre where her strong
principles of fairplay and human rights were aired. She uses these
same principles with the camels and they respect her immensely and
respond to her extremely well.
Lyn has also completed a double degree (law/arts) and practices
in Port Augusta. She knows her botany and birds, particularly the
many bird calls and has a keen interest and knowledge in aboriginal
lithics (stone chippings) and how they allow for the interpretation
of the landscape.
Lyn is a tremendous asset to Explore the Outback with her
easy going yet professional manner and her ongoing involvement with
us is good news for those who've been out with Lyn into this amazing
desert landscape with its myriad of secrets and surprises.
Lyn owns her own camels and has a great affection for these animals
which will be obvious after a few minutes with her and the camels.
Forget what anyone told you about biting, spitting and kicking dromedary
camels - it simply isn't true. Where there exists a common mutual
respect between handler and animal, there also exists an extremely
healthy and amicable working relationship.
Now that's great camel trekking.
