Late 2009 we organized a Camel week in Oman for a TV program – culminating in their participating in a Couple of Camel Races .
Well – here is part of the resulting TV program – the really chaotic pursuit of the racing Camels by their trainers in cars.
You can also read about a visit we made to camel races in Oman a few years ago
and it was a total immersion in Oman’s Camel culture
Making the Oman national newspaper – Colin Carroll & Graham Little created a stir as they did a unique double – a regional Camel Race and a local Camel Race in Oman.
On two consecutive days they joined in the quintessentially Omani pastime of Camel Racing – not as spectators as I often do – but as participants for their program ‘Colin and Graham’s Excellent Adventures’
Thrills and spills was the order of the day – but you will have to watch the program on RTE and BBC – to see how they survived the gruelling desert events.
