Sudan

Rumored to be the largest livestock market in the world, the Al-Moheli Souk camel market on the outskirts of Omdurman is where camels are brought from all corners of Sudan to be traded and sold. Camels are sold in groups, and men negotiate price based on the type of camel and the work for which it is intended. Moving among the camels and other livestock spread over acres of empty desert, friendly traders eagerly show off their animals—even to visitors from abroad who won’t be making any purchases.
