The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert has welcomed a new baby camel called ‘Luliwa’, or more affectionately known as Lulu -meaning Pearl in Arabic – to the stunning nature reserve, home to more than eight Arabian camels and 135 Arabian gazelles and oryx.
Lulu’s parents Darling and Bob, part of the conservation area’s herd of camels, welcomed Lulu, weighing a healthy 34 kg and standing 120cm tall. She joins a thriving herd of Dromedary camels also known as the Arabian camel, characterised by a single hump, and a flourishing population of gazelle and oryx within the nature reserve.
