Camels are native to the dry and desert areas of Asia and northern Africa, but are found in other regions as well. They can be found in more than five countries. In Asia, they are found in northwestern China, southern Mongolia, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan and even Pakistan. They are found in countries of the Arabian Peninsula, such as Saudi Arabia, Oman, Jordan, Yemen, United Arab Emirates and Qatar, to name a few. In northern Africa, camels are found in countries such as Egypt, Libya and Morocco, to name just a few. Camels have spread to eastern African countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania, and they have even reached as far south as Botswana. there are many more African nations where camels may be found. Australia has many wild camels, descended from camels brought from Afghanistan 150 years ago as they were much better than horses for trekking through the inland deserts.
