Tired of pyramids and museums and looking for some exotic experience, tourists are discovering new amusement sites like the Gaza Strip market. The market is located in Burkash, a small picturesque place in the Nile Valley that is visited only by tourists traveling by them. Because it's hard to imagine a huge comfortable bus with air conditioning in a place where paved roads are still something new. However, the entrepreneurship administration does not waste time making money; Tourists have to pay at least to see the market because they don't buy camels.
The Burkash market is the largest camel market in the country. A little smaller area than Aswan is a thousand kilometers from Cairo. In time, no less than two thousand camels were introduced, mostly from neighboring countries. From Sudan alone, they produce more than three thousand camels a month.
Caravans with between 100 and 150 camels each go a long way along the Nile River, deep in Africa, to reach this market, not far from the Egyptian capital. This may be the reason that some camels are in good condition and need to be obese before selling. The rest of the "Successful Beggars" are brought to market by trucks.
Camel meat is a popular dish in Egypt because it is not as rich in fat as beef or lamb, but it contains a lot of protein.
Camels sold for competitions are more expensive than usual. Their price could reach over two thousand dollars, although they are not completely different from the usual. Although their meat is widespread, camels are still used as transport, especially in the desert, where they are valued for their durability and ability to withstand much water and food.
In Egypt, camels are not used in tribes, but they are attractive to tourists.
Price talks are so raging, one might think that the cost dispute could turn into a scuffle. Periodically, angry and offended, the salesman simply leaves to return a few minutes later and continues the dispute, seeking a compromise. Security claims that criminal cases are very rare here.
Usually, camels go gross, setting the price for everyone. Most clients are specialists, unique brokers who know how to get the price down. There is no scale, the weight of a certain camel meat is getting closer. The price of a camel varies from 1500 pounds (below $ 300) to nine thousand pounds (about $ 1.6,000).
Even if tourists do not buy camels, they can get a rough blanket and leave impressions. In one city you can taste camel milk, which is recommended to prevent and treat hepatitis, food allergies, etc.
