Royal Camel Farm in Bahrain

The Royal Camel Farm on the outskirts of Manama was founded by the late Sheikh Mohammed Bin Salman Al Khalifa. It is a hobby farm, meaning the animals are not raised for racing or for their meat, and there are hundreds of camels living here, all owned by the royal family of Bahrain.

Before the introduction of cars to the country, camels were the primary means of transport for the people of Bahrain, as they are ideal to travel distances in the humid and dry climate. However, their numbers dwindled as other methods of transport became more practical, hence why the Sheik decide to create the Royal Camel Farm to protect the native species of the Arabian Peninsula.

Bahrainis have had a deep routed cultural connection to camels for centuries. Worshipped as a sacred symbol of life and prosperity in the harsh desert environment by their ancestors, for many in Bahrain and indeed the Middle East in general, camels are still regarded as a symbol of power, wealth and fertility. As a result, only the wealthiest and most prestigious families in Bahrain own a camel at the Royal Camel Farm. A great family day out, visitors have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the camels, feeding and touching them. It is even possible to arrange a camel ride around the compound. The camels are separated into male and female pens with the older and younger camels separated from the main pens.
