If you have been to Marrakech, then you probably know what a huge part camels play in the city & all over Morocco. In this post we will introduce you to some of these magnificent creatures!

Moroccan Camels

They are amazing creatures & I thought I would share with you some camel facts!!

The Arabian camel is the one humped Dromedary.  Camels have been in use since 1800BC on the silk route from Asia to Africa carrying incense, spices, ivory, gold, & silk.

If you’re ever in the market for a camel, there’s no better place to find one than in Marrakech. Whether you’re looking for a small dromedary to take on a short ride or a large Bactrian to carry your belongings, there are plenty of camels available in this bustling Moroccan city. Be sure to bargain hard, as prices can be steep, and enjoy the exotic experience of riding through the winding streets on top of one of these creatures of the desert. Just beware – camels can be unpredictable, so hold on tight!

Why not read about one our journey to the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi where we came across this a 6 days old camel.

Did you know that camels can allow their bodies to rise and fall between 36 – 42 degrees C. That’s 6 degrees.
