Camels and Culture – 1 Night UAE Adventure

Our ever popular two day, one night adventure combines easy offroad driving with visits to the Al Dhafra Camel Festival.  Our guests will have the chance to get up close and personal with some camel beauty queens, cross the tropic of cancer in the desert, and discover much about the bedu heritage.

Tour Dates*


The Al Dhafra Camel Festival will take place over weekends in November/December 2020 and January 2021.  At the time of writing (26 October), a scaled-back version is planned with no souq or associated events, and all participants and juries must prevent a negative covid test certificate. The souq, hospitality and prizegivings are the highlight of this weekend, and it looks like none of these will go ahead.

For that reason, we have cancelled our 2020  Camels and Culture Adventure but look forward to welcoming guests back on the 2021 edition.
