I went there with my family last week. We had good time watching the camels froma close, but the place lacks guidance operators, sovenier shop, toilet or some introductory room for visitors. You rely on the local breeders to tell you what's and why's. These local guys hardly speak any English and it seems they are not happy themselves, as one of them offered my his service to work as a house cleaner or gardener.

This farm is easy to get to and FREE. The owners have made significant upgrades like professional corrals(to protect the camels) and a proper car park and walkways(to protect you). The Indian employees are often willing to take you into the corrals and show off some of the very young camels. (Plan to tip the employees .500-1BHD to say thanks). They used to let you mount the camels and guide you around the pen, but they've stopped that practice. Warning: Camels spit and bite! Beware of the part with the head!! Also, this is a working farm, so you could round a corner to interrupt a breeding session! Male dromedaries have a strange mating song made as they hack up their uvula and blow air through it.(you got to see it to believe it!). All said the farm is a great visit to the furry side of Bahrain.

Ok this place was not really open, but we got in anyway! Had a great time, and enjoyed seeing the baby camels, and watching them cavort around the pens. There are about 800 camels, and it is being upgraded.

The Camel Farm is on the palaces grounds and have around 600 camels. We went there and one of the men that looks after them showed us around he let us go up close and pat the camels and take photos with them. We where then welcomed to go visit the 2 week old baby camels that were there. You are able to go for rides on the camels aswell you just have to ask and they will take you to the camel track and you go for a ride. It was a great morning and the staff were really nice..A must see in Bahrain for adults and kids well worth it.

It really is a "farm". We were not quite sure where to go when we got there or what we were suppose to do. We just kind of wandered around until one of the farm hands waved us over. My husband had heard from some of his co-workers that if you tip them they will let you sit on a camel. We did and got a great picture. It was worth going to see but it isn't an attraction per se.
