    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For groups mostly they use buses in Saudi Arabia as it is economical and even if you are alone you can join the group. The guide give you the information about the places you visit mostly the people who are going first time like to go with the group and of course it is a money saver package.

  • AL Shegdef

    by arabian10 Written Feb 16, 2007

    "AL Shegdef", the ancient means of ferrying pilgrims across the vast distances of Arabia.

    Up to the immediate past, without the camel the vast deserts of Arabia could never have been utilized by man, nor could ancient transport systems have evolved there.

    Two to three persons can set in one Shegdef usually for women and children.

    In the photo caravan of camels carrying Shegdefs.
