Arabia’s camels

Arabia’s camels

The beasts of burden symbolize the region, and currently nearly 30,000 of
them are making their way towards the town of Al Gharbia in Abu Dhabi,
to take part in the Al Dhaffra festival.

Long before the World Trade Centre and Burj Al Arab emerged in Dubai, camels
roamed through the desert with their Bedouin owners. Before the discovery of
oil, camel caravans carrying firewood, charcoal, dates and other
agricultural produce crossed the desert from Al Ain to Abu Dhabi. In summer,
camels were used to transport entire families from the humid coast to cooler
oases in the interior. They also provided milk and meat for the people.

The first World Camel Symposium was held in Dubai in 1992 and the government
has invested heavily in breeding and researching the camel.

    Fantastic, the Camel milk called Camelicious is a fantastic product, as you said that it has less than half of the fat of cow’s milk and offcourse naturally which is most important, best for the region and with all the minerals found in camelicious sure it is better than cow’s milk.
