Part of our tour included an optional 30-minute camel ride through the Sahara to get a back-side view of the 9 pyramids. Heck Yeah! It was an amazing experience and I’m now quite happy I never have to do it again! Camels are not comfortable or smooth and very high. I was sure I was going to topple right over the front of mine at every turn. But I didn’t and it was worth it for the views.
