Camel races with Robot Jockeys

Camel racers were once mounted by lightweight children (some as young as 2 or 3 years old) but they’ve been using robot jockeys since 2003. It’s a spectacular show that gives you a feel for the culture in Abu Dhabi. Races take place all year around but the best racing season in Abu Dhabi is October through April!
