if u love the camels this is a right place even in to many smelling with different animals. little out from city best to see camel, goat, lambs, cows, etc. avoid to go near to them and carefully from camel keepers.

Not a big fan of animals especially when they stink a lot, sorry to say. so it was a 'ok it's a must visit place so let's just stop by, take a few photos of the camel then go' kind of visit for me.
