Dromedary plains kazakhstan aktau camels

Dromedary plains

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.
