Camels are not the prettiest of animals but if you’re living in the desert, it is a lifeline to your survival. So where can you go camel shopping? To Abu Dhabi of course! As the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition open to public, expect a lot of desert based fanfare like the diamond-studded falcon hoods to go on sale. So what can you look for this year? Well, two gold-plated dune buggies to explore which are equipped with ostrich-leather seats and plasma-screen televisions. One of them is a customized desert safari vehicle nicknamed the “Royal Beast”, resembling a Lamborghini which features remote-controlled scissor doors. For a more opulent version you can opt for gold coated, black, red and yellow Golden Edition” Beast which features with a high-intensity light bar right above the windscreen and an eight-speaker stereo sound system.
Another highlight is the World Arabian Horse Racing Conference, that will host a panel on horse breeding, a camel auction and a beauty contests for salukis and Arabian horses.
