Cancellation policy
  • For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
Available languages
German, Russian, Portuguese, English, Italian, French, Spanish
What to expect
  • The best day to visit is supposed to be Friday, when the market is most lively in the earlier parts of the morning 7am-9am. The market is open till 1pm but most of the trading happens before 11am. This market used to earlier take place in Imbaba, but as the city expanded, the camel market was moved to the suburb of Birqash which is at the edge of the Western Desert. 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.

Wow wow wow! Thanks to Tonsi
What an experience!! Such a fantastic tour to see the Camels and experience the life of the people that live and work at the market! My guide Tonsi picked me up on time and asked me if I had breakfast, I hadn't so I asked for a traditional Egyptian food to which he was more than happy to do! We had falafel in bread and Egyptian coffee! Once we finished we set off, Tonsi made sure I had water and I was ok all the time. Along the way he showed me farms and explained how the Nile divided into separate rivers and how the Nile is life for the people that live around it. When we arrived, we parked up and wondered around seeing all the different holding pens and Tonsi told me how the buying and selling of the camels work. We were very fortunate enough to watch a female camel give birth, what an experience!! After walking around and meeting some of the locals we walked across the road to were their houses are and their back gardens where they keep the camels. Tonsi was great at helping not getting involved in buying a camel!! Tonsi spoke to the locals and got me them to let us go into their gardens and watch them feed and water the camels! Make sure you where boots or good walking shoes as you may have to jumped out of the way of camels! Overall its a very eye opening but amazing experience that I would highly recommend. Charles, Uk
