Dromedary camels graze alongside the long, flat road leading from Aktau airport to Aktau city near the Caspian Sea. In Kazakhstan, you can find three types of camels – Dromedary, with one hump, Bactrian, with two humps, or a Kazakh hybrid called the Nar camel or Turkoman, with half a hump. Their numbers are climbing due to a growing demand for camel meat, milk and shubat, a Central Asian drink of fermented camel’s milk.
