At 8:00 am Excursion Cairo tour guide will pickup from your hotel , transfer you to Egypt’s Largest Camel Market – Birqash Camel Market is 35km away from Cairo.
Camels from Sudan are brought into Egypt on the 40 day road via Abu Simbel to the market in Daraw. The unsold camels are then loaded into trucks and brought to Birqash after a 24 hour drive.
Hundreds of Camels are sold here everyday. But this is definitely not a market for the Animal lover. The animals aren’t in pitiable condition, but they could be treated much, much better than they currently are.
The traders have wonderfully character faces and I would have loved to be able to take close up portraits and talk to them and listen to their stories. Then Back safely to your hotel in Cairo
