On March 19, Oprah Winfrey posted a series of pictures from her trip to Jordan, which she went with her best friend, Gayle King.

The carousel starts with a picture of Winfrey riding on top of a camel with khakis and a green scarf on and another picture of Winfrey standing next to the camel, posing with a kissy face to the camera.

Critics were quick to comment on the star riding the camel, claiming animal abuse, while fans pointed out that Bedouins of Jordan highly respect and care for their camels. Regardless, our talk show queen looked regal in the pictures.

The next picture shows Winfrey, 69, and King, 68, enjoying the impressive rock valleys and another picture shows the two enjoying a desert sunset in matching coats. Oprah and King have been friends since 1976 when the two worked for WJZ-TV and have taken many trips together throughout the years.

Winfrey captioned her post, “Visited Jordan this week and there was so much to see and experience! We visited the site where John the Baptist baptized Jesus, Petra and all its fascinations, camels, and the spot where the big boulder comes rolling out of Indiana Jones. So much history there in the “Rose City,” voted one of the 7 new wonders of the world. It takes 3 days to really see it all we only spent 3 hours. Put it on your must see list if you haven’t already!”
