Let's say this up front: Riding a camel is one of the most uncomfortable experiences you can imagine. The width of a camel's body, coupled with the precarious place you must take upon its back, the near waddle of its gait as it sways back and forth, and the general disdain the animal usually has for its passenger all work against your efforts to cultivate an essence of relaxation and comfort. But riding a camel is fantastically fun and bound to be one of your favorite memories from your trip to Egypt or Morocco or any other desert destination.
