What to Expect
Our Egypt Tailor Made tour guide will pick you up from your hotel by air conditioned vehicle on your way to 

Birqash where the Camel Market is held only on 

FRIDAYS “around 60 km driving from Cairo”. The pickup time will be around 7.00 am in order to arrive during the peak time of the market. It's one of the biggest markets for camel meat in all of Africa. Camels are annually herded up the

Darb al-Arba'in, the famous 40 Day Road. This ancient caravan route starts in Sudan and ends in Birqash. The camels are herded through Sudan, Eritrea, and Somalia to southern Egypt. From there, most camels are shipped to Birqash Camel Market via several oases in the back of large trucks. 

After finishing the tour you will get back to the vehicle on the way to your hotel.
