Camels, with their legendary ability to survive on a minimum amount of water, are used as beasts of burden in desert terrain from Morocco to Australia. In Egypt you will often see them both at work and for tourist amusement. In numerous spots you can ride one for an hour or so, led around by a trainer.

But to see the desert as its inhabitants have, a camel trek is the only way to go. Naturally it’s not as straightforward as jumping on a camel’s back and riding off into the dunes. Any reputable trekking guide will give you lessons in mounting, dismounting, saddling and directing a camel.
