“Camel markets have been big business is Morocco for centuries. They work something like present day car lots! Camel traders from up and down the coast converge on the Ourika Market, 26 miles from downtown Marrakech. A good "ship of the desert" is still an important means of transportation in the deserts of Africa. Because they require very little water and have huge feet well-adapted to sand travel, nothing else rides like the one-humped Arabian dromedary. Dromedaries are favored for their speed and a knack for learning.”
