Al Sawan Camel Race Track
Ras Al Khaimah
Camel races are a traditional heritage activity in Ras Al Khaimah. Mainly a winter pastime, the camel races take place on the weekends at the camel racetrack, surrounded by dunes and sheltered by the thickets of Ghaf trees in Digdaga and Hamraniya. On weekdays, the racetrack is usually busy with camel trainers and colorfully clad camels trotting up and down the track, building up their stamina for the weekend races. The camel races are held early Friday mornings from 6:30 to 9:30 am from October through the winter season.
