Desert Camel Farm
Just like they store water in their humps for days, you will store them in your heart for as long as you remember. Camels, majestic desert dwellers that have become synonymous to every desert safari are also famous attractions for every visitor of the United Arab Emirates. For many centuries camels were considered as the biggest form of wealth. Even today in the UAE a man’s wealth is measured by how many camels he has, the more the wealthier.
For Bedouins, the nomadic tribes that live in the desert, camels have been their biggest source of income and pride. Playing a huge role in the heritage of UAE, both socially and economically, camels were given as dowry for Bedouin brides during marriage, a substitute for money while giving charity and a means of transport, food and milk. A strong symbol of patience and perseverance, the camels are widely nicknamed as the ship of the desert because of its gentle saunter that resembles the motion of the ship while sailing.
From roadsides to camel markets, Camels can be viewed in many places in the UAE. However, visiting a camel farm is the best option to learn more about these gentle giants and the way they interact with their human friends. Visitors can spot the varieties of camel species of different ages, get to know more about them and observe how camel milk is obtained.
