Cairo Day Tours $30 Per Person
Enjoy a unique experience watching the merchants buying and selling camels in auctions inside the camel market at Birqash in Cairo. It will be such a unique experience watching them making deals.
Our representative will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo and then drive to Birqash, a small village that is situated about 35 km northwest of Cairo on the edge of the Delta’s cultivated land. If you’re a keen photographer, then you will like the market very much. Most of the tourists would love to go on Fridays as on Fridays the traffic in the market is at its highest. Inside the market you will see the largest gathering of camels as there are hundreds of camels are being sold and bought in auctions between 7 am and 10 am. They are sold for farm work or slaughter. You will like watching the traders negotiating and making deals. Most of the camels are brought from western Sudan, Somalia and from various parts of Egypt including Sinai.
People go there to get a relatively cheap and guaranteed healthy meat. At the end of the tour you will be transferred back to your hotel in Cairo or Giza.
