Three Camel Lodge is an award-winning luxury property that combines culturally-minded design with a heightened blend of adventure, sophistication, and education. Created in consultation with the local population and various nongovernmental organizations working to conserve the area, the Lodge now serves as a base of operations for archaeologists, filmmakers, history buffs, thrill seekers, the tech-free enthusiast, and the luxury traveler.
We are the original concept for the sustainable ecolodge within Mongolia, and we remain the only ecolodge in the Mongolian Gobi.
Our Lodge is located in the wilderness near Dalanzadgad, the only village with a domestic airport in South Gobi Province, and Bulgan, home to one of the only farms in the desert.
This region of the Gobi houses a fantastic array of wildlife and endemic foliage, arid conditions that give way to sometimes surprising results and nomadic people who are warm-hearted and hold the blood of Genghis Khan in their ancient veins.
We offer an extraordinary range of tailored adventures and amenities fit for even the most exacting excursionist. Exploring the Gobi Desert (and beyond) on a tour with Nomadic Expeditions can be exhilarating—it may leave you in need of a specialist’s massage. You can head to Bulagtai Restaurant to indulge your inner gastronome on Chef Yagaanaa’s seasonal gourmet menu, which contains both Mongolian and international delicacies. At the end of the trip when you want a memento of your intimate cultural journey through Mongolia’s countryside, you can visit the Lodge Shop—where you’ll find everything from high-quality cashmere (second to none in the world) to handmade felt items and local handicrafts.
We think you’ll agree that Three Camel Lodge is a unique and serene place, with unmatched experiences in one of the world’s final wilderness regions. We invite you to join the Lodge in our 13th year of phenomenal exploration through the Gobi Desert!
