Camel riding and walking

Camels also leave tracks- but these are negligible compared to those left by a car. Camels are silentapart from snorting and coughing. They walk at human speed, maybe 4.5km/h, so you are as comfortable on or off the saddle. Riding a camel that is part of a camel train is easy- keep one hand on the saddle and use the other to steady the book you are reading- you cannot read while being driven in a car- camels smooth out the bumps rather better.

Camels are arguably more roman-tic and more ‘real desert’ than carsbut you will not go so far as you will in a vehicle. However, if you walk in the desert, even a few kilometers from the road will feel isolated.
