Five hundred and seventy-one camel sera collected after an epizootic of Rift Valley Fever were examined for antibody to the virus. Clinical disease had not been observed in cattle and sheep in the ecosystems shared with the camels. Positive sera with high titres of serum neutralizing antibody were found in 22% of camels at one of the seven sampling sites.
