The Historic of Camel Trekking in Sahara
Camel Trekking in Sahara: The camels have a great historical importance due to their role in the trade and transport of goods among the African tribes. Historically, camel caravans have been used mainly in desert areas, where group travel allowed for self-defense and defense against bandits. Camels or “The Ship of the Desert” are native to several deserts in the world, primarily the Sahara Desert in Africa. To live in their native deserts, camels rely on their physical assets to help cope with extreme physical conditions.
A desert trek on the mythical route taken by camel caravans through the Sahara until the end of the 19th century between Marrakech and Timbuktu. Consisting of thousands of dromedaries, they crossed the mountains of the Atlas, then the Sahara between the southern Moroccan and Timbuktu.
