The head of the Egyptian Federation of Camel Racing Hamdan El-Museum said that on Saturday he will witness the last stage of the camel race in the city of Alamein.
After this round, the winners will be awarded and will receive financial awards provided by the UAE Camel Racing Federation.
Last year, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Crown Prince Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed attended the opening of a camel jump festival in Egypt’s South Sinai.
Sisi welcomes the deep relations between Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.
The festival, held in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, was attended by tribal leaders and locals, who witnessed the participation of 52 camels from Egypt, who will run for four kilometers during the race. It will last until Sunday.
“Today I had the honor to open with my brother Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed the Sharm el-Sheikh Heritage Festival, which confirms the depth of the bonds of friendship and lasting love that unite the Egyptian and Emirati peoples.”
Sisi and Mohamed bin Zayed were also present at the opening of the region’s largest military base, Berenice, in the Red Sea Governorate.
