Camel Beauty Festival Tours

The festival takes place from December-January in Um Rgabah the magnificent golden sand dune of the Dhana desert located 320km northeast of Riyadh. A daily camel show runs from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm, except on Fridays when the show is in the afternoon. More than  10,000 camels are divided according to their number and colors – white, brown, yellow, red and black. It’s a wonderful opportunity to take great photos of a large variety of camels in one place.

The proud camel owners meet annually in Saudi Arabia and come from all Gulf countries to buy and sell camels worth one hundred million riyals and more.

The festival also includes a huge famous souk offering food, handmade goods, souvenirs, camping equipment and much more. Exhibitions of classic cars, falcons, heritage items and cultural displays can also be found.


Haya Tour is the first tour operator to take groups to the festival since it started 14 years ago. It’s a great opportunity to take good photos of Arabian camels from different places on the Arabian Peninsula all competing for the beauty prize.
