I was NOT leaving Morrocco without riding a camel but the ones I saw in Marrakech did not look particularly healthy so I was not very happy about riding one and having a good conscience. On a day trip to Essaouira our driver told us he 'knew someone' ...he knew lots of someones...and would arrange it. We were having lunch right near the beach and he came to the table and told us we would be collected in 4x4 and taken to the ranch! Indeed we were and after a short but very bumpy ride we were there. Mustafa was our guide and showed us how to get on our dromedaries without breaking any important bones, our trusty steeds were Cappuccino and Omar. It was FAB! Mustafa pointed out falcons living in the ruins of a fort on the beach, a flock of flamingos just arrived from Madagascar flying low over the bay, lots of trees and plants and dromedary facts. It was cool and breezy on the beach and we even went into the sea which was such a welcome break from the 100f heat in Marrakech. A fantastic hour that will always be remembered.
