Check out Camel Wrestling in Fethiye

Ever heard of Camel wrestling? I know I haven’t and if you only just moved to Turkey there is a god chance you haven’t either.

However if you are moving to Fethiye then you are in luck; you can experience camel wrestling first hand this Sunday 6th February.

To give a rough idea, Camel wrestling is just the fight  that occurs when two rutting frisky camels are brought together and a lady camel is paraded in front them. It turns outs camels can be quite feisty when a female is up for grabs.

From what I’ve heard camel wrestling is very entertaining and a great Turkish event anyone living in Turkey should experience. Also all proceeds from the fight go to a local charity.

Don’t worry if you don’t live in Fethiye, you can catch camel wrestling in other parts of Turkey between now and April. I will keep you posted with the dates and times…
