Camel wins the Desert Camel Race
Camel Dive Club sponsored this year's winner of the traditional annual Bedouin Camel Race in Sharm El Sheikh, which took place on Monday 26th March at Wadi Zoweilaa, 4km behind Sharm in the desert. Over one hundred people attended including Bedouins and local residents.
The day started with a Bedouin wedding, followed by the official "Camel race." In total there were 8 camels competing, all sponsored by hotels and dive centres in Sharm. It was a great day out for the local community and included a raffle, Bedouin barbeque and music. Hesham Gabr, owner of Camel Dive Club, was "proud to be the winning camel! It's great that these events take place, bringing our communities together and strengthening relationships."
