    Birqash Camel Market (Souq al-Gamaal)
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Egypt’s largest camel market is held at Birqash (pronounced Bir’ash), a small village 35km northwest of Cairo, just on the edge of the Delta’s cultivated land. It's not for the faint of heart – many traders treat the camels with intense cruelty – but it's a very local experience. Hundreds of camels are sold here every market day, with the liveliest action between 7am and 10am.
