A Camel Safari in Egypt, often the second thing you think of after the Cairo Pyramids. Contrary to popular belief Camels are not indigenous to Egypt. Ask any Australian and they will tell you stories of wild camels in the out back and how there are seen as pests. There are over 1 million wild camels in Australia now and they are growing in numbers by 10% a year; but there not from Australia either, they were brought in the 1800 to carry goods across the desert and when the petrol engine arrived were left to fend for themselves. Camels evolved in North America, 4 million years ago they migrated across the Bering land bridge into Asia where they were domesticated and slowly brought across to the middle east.
