Al Wathba Race Track

Spectator Sport in Abu Dhabi

Sporting colourful nosebags and matching blankets, camels are the stars of the show at the Al Wathba Race Track, 45km southeast of Abu Dhabi. Races are great fun, even just to watch the enthusiasm of the owners who drive alongside the track cheering their beloved animals along. Arrive 30 minutes ahead of the starting block to absorb the pre-race excitement.

The track is about 45km east of town via the E22 towards Al Ain; take exit 47, turn right to Al Wathba Palace and right again to the track.
