Hi Kansas,

No camel market in Cairo. Only in Luxor you will found bug camel market.

Hope this helps.

Hey Kansas,

I just checked my notes, there is a camel market in Cairo. It is in Birqash about 35km from Cairo. It is held on Friday's and Monday's only between 6am and noon, the best time to be there is around 7-9am. We decided against it after hearing that it is not a good place for animal lovers (poor conditions etc). If you put "camel market" in the search box, you will see some other posts. I do remember reading that others enjoyed the experience.

hope this helps.

Nefertari is right. I have never been to the market, but I read about it and it is mentioned with details in any guide book for Cairo.
