Camel race between Bedouin tribes

You cannot imagine and pictures really cannot show how exciting this race is. You don’t just watch the camels race, you race with the camels and with hundreds of cars full of local Bedouin.

Will these photos and video tempt you to book your place and join us at the 2014 race?

The big yearly camel race between the Muzeina and Tarabeen Bedouin tribes of Nuweiba was held at Wadi Zalaga, South Sinai, on 10 January 2013. The pictures of the race were taken from the Nature Travel car which was IN the race and this was a high speed off-road ride, so there is some distortion from photos being taken through window glass and movement due to photographer being unable to stay firmly seated when riding over desert bumps! The experience included a 50km drive into beautiful desert the day before the race, to camp with Bedouin under the stars and be close to the race area for the early morning start.

More pictures of this adventure will be posted next week.
