Camels have been used by nomads, trade caravans and travelers of the Sahara for centuries, mostly as porting companions. Many attractions in Mauritania are hard to reach by motor vehicle, so we will take camels with us to carry our things and keep our weight light.
It can be difficult to walk in the desert sand for long periods, so you may want to ride one from time to time to get your energy back. Camels are companions of the desert and are highly respected and appreciated on our journeys. They make much of our travels possible.
