Emirates Travelers began their first journey in 1996 starting from Abu Dhabi and took 6 months as they passed through Syria, Jordan, North Africa and Europe. From there they went to the North and South American continents. Even the Amazon and Brazil were driven through making it a journey of 40.000 km within 25 countries.
The Dubai International Travelers festival has sponsored two of those travelers, whom are experienced in traveling by camels around the world, to make a unique journey crossing Africa by camel. They became the first team to accomplish such a challenge completing a trip of 9.500 km across the African Continent within 8 months. The festival produced a documentary about this travel showing their journey and experiences during this trip.
Dubai Travelers Festival is a stage where these seasoned adventurers can share their experiences with visitors and among one another through workshops, lectures, interviews and documentary screenings. Their stories of the tough summits they’ve scaled, the oceans they’ve crossed, and the number of dangers of the jungles they’ve faced with wild-animals, and the lonely roads they’ve traveled will inspire everyone around the world.
