One of the best ways to see Morocco is from the back of a camel.  These ships of the desert have been carrying pilgrims and adventurers across the sands for thousands of years, and camel owners are always happy to take visitors on a camelback tour of their homeland.  Whether you take a quite half hour ride or embark on a multi-day trip across the Sahara, you are sure to have a great time.
