Camels in Morocco

Riding Camels in Morocco

When I heard we were going to Morocco, I knew I wanted to ride camels. Wherever I go, I try to arrange encounters with wildlife. I love animals and if I could go back and do my education all over again, I would consider a change towards conservation biology.

Christian had originally said that our camel riding experience was going to tame. He described it as one person at a time, getting on the animal, and walking around for about 30 seconds.

Luck was on our side that day. On the outskirts of Tangier, we found our spot. The four of us that wanted to ride them were able to ride them all at the same time. The owners lead down to the beach where we were able to walk along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.

The ride was rougher than I thought because I have not ridden a horse in awhile. My inner thighs were sore the next day from holding on so tightly!

It was one of those moments in life that I ask myself how on earth did I end up here?

    […] Overall, Tangier is a fun, vibrant city, complete with the ancient feel of the Medina, although we highly recommend exploring the city surrounds, as the countryside is equally beautiful. The short trip to Hercules Grotto is well worth it, and make sure to indulge your tourist side with a camel ride on the beach. […]
