Unexpected visit to this farm to enable party to take photographs. Didn't like seeing the make camels chained up albeit only for a couple of hours a day.

Great place to visit Iconic animals of the Middle East. You can pat them, feed them, check out baby camels and even buy camel milk (only early in the morning, not all days, check first). No entry fee, but do tip friendly guys who will show you around

This was a fun to see camels and the workers let us feed them but not much else to see--only some camels. You're done in 15 minutes. They did have some babies that were pretty cute to see. It's a must see but over quickly.

This is a camel farm where they are kept for milk, apparently. Camels chained up, presumably so that they didn't damage the tourists, but the whole thing seemed to me to be heartless and cruel. Gave people a close up view of a camel, but we preferred to see them free and trekking across the desert. Give this one a... More

Not for me this stop. Camels looked well cared for and in good condition as did birds, although not a fan of tethered and / or hooded animals. No washing toilet facilities at site (although did look like there was a boarded up portaloo). Hour all that's needed.

There are over 400 camels here including very young ones. They seemed to like their photo being taken and being petted. They all looked in good condition

Honestly do not understand the reviews I have read on this place. We went yesterday and we're so horrified that we walked around to see if there was at least one nice place or one happy camel. There are a few sections: as you walk into the area there are chained camels that can only move about 2 meters in... More

Beautifully maintained with all types of camel like Udaipur, kuchh, Saudi n more. New born , ride etc. Museum is also very good to watch. Camel milk tea coffee ice cream was an added attraction

You don't need to spend more than an hour here, but it's definitely worth a visit! The camels are very friendly and we even got to meet a three-week old baby. Nowhere to wash your hands after touching the camels though, so it's worth taking some antibacterial hand gel in your bag. Free admission.
