Overview
Visit Daraw Camel Market, also known as Souq al-Gimaal, on a half-day tour from Aswan. See thousands of camels, brought in caravans from Sudan, or on foot from Wadi al-Alagi, and experience the excitement of the weekend camel market.
What to Expect
This half-day tour from Aswan takes you to the energetic camel market of Daraw, south of Kom Ombo. You will be picked up from your address of choice in Aswan for the drive north through the Nile Valley by air-conditioned vehicle.

The large camel market takes place every Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday, when more than 2,000 camels arrive from Sudan, either in caravans that have crossed the desert during a 40-day road trip, or in small groups that enter Egypt at Wadi al-Alagi through the Eastern Desert.

Explore one of the largest and liveliest camel markets in Egypt, with a knowledgeable guide, and see excitable vendors haggling for the most noble camels and the tastiest camel meat at the best price possible.

At the end of your visit, you will be transferred back to Aswan, down the Nile Valley, for a drop-off at the place of your choice.
