The Most Significant Camel Club Tours
A miniature caravan, exploring Saudi civilization and the depths of its ancient heritage. The tour was made up of two Saudi travellers on camelback and departed from the city of Dreamers (Neom), travelling through various areas of Saudi Arabia until it touched down in the King Abdul Aziz Camel Festival in the shimmering heat of the Dahna Desert, in order to discover the authenticity of our heritage.
A touristic camel caravan aimed at exploring the beautiful areas of Saudi Arabia, taking photos of camels in a variety of geographical locations while at the same time publicising areas with a unique historical and geographical dimension. The journey started from the coasts of Al Qunfudhah on the Red Seaو passing into the interior through picturesque mountains and scenery which had not previously been publicised or photographed. Participants included a number of interested and travel professionals who had rich experience of living in these areas, and enjoyed local community participation in their lives and the way they lived in these locations.
As part of a series of Khuff trips, which target historical and tourist sites in Saudi Arabia, get acquainted with them by taking more pictures of the beautiful camels in the Al-Soudah heights, which are surrounded by fog from every direction, and taking pictures of camels in the highlands and amid the fog that surrounds the highest point in Saudi Arabia. The project also aims to introduce Al-Soudah and its geographical and climatic features.
An exploratory convoy offering the unique experience of crossing the Empty Quarter Desert in the south-east of Saudi Arabia on camelback. The starting point was the historic town of Uber, ending at the Yabrin Oasis in the Empty Quarter Desert. About 80 travellers from different countries of the world participated in it. They covered a distance of 600 kms and took 26 days.
Camels .. A link to the Kingdom's history and a source of pride for Saudis
The camel is a basic constituent of Saudi heritage and history through its close association with the human being in the Arabian Peninsula. It is an important asset towards providing a livelihood and supporting Saudis in adapting to difficult environmental conditions. From the early days of the Saudi state, man continued to depend on the camel in everything he did. It was the source of his power and his food. It even participated in the travels of the founder of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, King Abd al-Aziz bin Abdul-Rahman Al Saud as he sought to unify the country under the banner of tawhid.
