Experience how the sons of the desert passionately cheer for their noble ships of the desert
Whether races or training runs, the atmosphere is legendary and you are witnessing a cultural event in the UAE that remains hidden from most visitors to the region
Friday mornings are always busy at the racetrack. Either races or training runs take place. The camels run different distances, but when visiting the camel race track it is less a matter of understanding the logistics, but of the experience and the atmosphere. You are in the middle of the Emiratis, away from glitter and glamour and watch as the desert sons passionately cheer for their desert ships. It almost seems as if time has stood still.
Camel racing was also a particularly popular pastime centuries ago, long before mobile phones or Bentlys became known. Betting is strictly forbidden!
You will stay at the track for about 1.5 hours. Your driver will then take you back to your hotel or to another location in Dubai.
Very important: Please wear comfortable and conservative clothing. Women and men should at least keep their shoulders and knees covered. Please do not wear tight or transparent clothing.
Photography is allowed. However, if you want to photograph a person, please ask for permission in advance.
Depending on the location of your hotel (or cruise ship) you will be picked up by a driver between 6:00 am and 6:30 am. The camel track is outside the city. It takes about 30 minutes to get there. Usually the light for taking pictures is particularly beautiful at this time of day. With a little luck you can take beautiful Dubai skyline photos.
