Cairo’s Camels

The Pyramids of Giza at Cairo, one of the seven wonders of the world, draw millions of tourists each year.

A major part of that attraction are the Bactrian camels that wander around, heads held high while their owners try courting curious travelers.

Camels aren’t the only mode of transport; the pyramids are home to the occasional horses too.
