Bedouin camel race, Nuweiba

Yesterday in the South Sinai desert near Nuweiba, many Bedouin gathered to race their finest camels around a large track. There were many exciting moments as the young riders urged these beautiful animals on, kicking up clouds of sand dust. The event was attended by the Governor and other officials, and cups and prizes were awarded to winners of each race.

Nature Travel provided transport for a film crew, including driving them around the centre of the racetrack while the races were in progress, and we look forward to seeing the results of their filming in a documentary on Sinai.
